I travelled by this train from Secunderabad to Warangal on October 4,2017. I travelled in AC chair car. I was allotted a window seat when I booked the ticket through IRCTC. But to my surprise it was an aisle seat in the chair car coach. IRCTC should check the seat allottment w.r.t the coach being allotted. But luckily as the window seat beside my seat was not booked, I shifted to that seat. The train started bang on time at 7:40 AM from Secunderabad. The coach was overall very neat, neat compartment and neat toilets. The AC was at top notch, very comfortable for me as it was vey sultry and humid in Hyd that day. But after the train started, within 30 minutes, all my co-passengers were closing the AC vents as they were feeling cold. I don't understand, if people can't bear AC even for 30 minutes, why...

do they travel in AC coaches. The speed of the train was okay. Sometimes it ran at MPS and sometimes it made unscheduled halts. The catering was good too and vendors came regularly. The onboard house keeping staff were cleaning the coach and collecting garbage very well at regular intervals. This train is even very good for rail fanning. It was overtaken by SBC-NZM Raj at Janagaon station. I spotted quite a lot of trains that day. Some of them were VSKP-SC garib rath, cocanada, narayanadri, gauthami, karnataka Sk . Most of the trains were running late when compared to their actual schedule because it was raining heavily in Hyd that day. Charging plugs were available, but not sufficient for all passengers. So it is better to carry a power bank. The train reached Warangal at 10:40 AM, around 40 minutes delayed. This delay is experienced almost everyday. Overall it was a 3 hour journey. Overall it was a good experience travelling by this train. People with heavy luggage can find problems as the AC chair car cannot accommodate much luggage. I would suggest that it is better to travel to Warangal by AC busses as they take almost 2.5-3 hours, and are less costly. It is even better to travel by Telangana Express in Sleeper class from Secunderabad to Kazipet if people are not very particularto travel by AC class. Tickets are mostly available in current booking quota.
