I traveled on the 3rd Jan in I A/C from Howrah- Secunderabad.Excellent run and almost till VSKP, at least two to three minutes arrived early. The Food served was tasty, though not hot.Its bit spicy ( though i enjoyed it).The train gains late after Nalgonda while in the Journey to Secunderabad. Its average speed is 58KMPH, where as Chennai Mail clocks 61 KMPH and Coromandal 64 KMPH.
A rating of 3.5 on a scale of 5 can be given for the neatness.The Tomato Soup is hot and tasty.For a new comer like me to Howrah, the Train usually leaves from P.F. 22/23.
