Faced with poor patronage, the South Central Railway (SCR) on Monday announced that it was cancelling from November 14 the two air-conditioned double-decker express trains that run from Kacheguda to Guntur and Tirupati.
After making an announcement in the Railway Budget of 2014-15 and starting operations amid fanfare on May 13 and 14, 2014, respectively, train Nos. 22118/22117 between Kacheguda and Guntur and Nos. 22120/22119 to Tirupati and back stood cancelled, a press release said.
From Day One of their introduction, passengers found the seats uncomfortable for the long journeys to Guntur and
Tirupati and remaining very poor, occupancy ratio dipped to single digit.
Following this scenario and after taking the opinion of people’s representatives and others in the Divisional Rail Users Consultative Committee, the SCR wrote to the Railway Board seeking permission to cancel these services.
Accordingly, the services have been cancelled.

Height of DD is really an issue, as it may infringe with the bottom of over bridges/ edges of platform shelters/ edges of platforms. New route have to be surveyed/studied in this respect, before operating DD on the route. At least the width of this DD rake is lesser than the original HWH-DHN rake, we can hope that major problem shall not arise.

That is v.good.
Only apprehension is, IR must not experiment to run these DDs as overnight UDAYs, else the fate of these trains shall remain like "set-ing sun" without ever getting opportunity to be a "rise-ing sun". (UDAY means Rise)
UDAY(overnight) trains ke chalne se ACDD trains ka AST hona nischit hai.
