Secunderabad to Vizag by Duronto---The worst coaches. I have been to Vizag by Duronto last week. The coaches were that of the old Bangalore rajdhanis and were shaking terribly, making huge sounds.
Being such a prestigious train it is a matter of regret that this train has such worst coaches. Lhb rakes should be given in the order of preference to 1.Shatabdis 2.Rajdhanis 3.Durontos and then to other prestigious and superfast trains. I felt the comfort of travelling in Garibrath than in VSKP Duronto.

Use this for speedy travel and also getting a ticket for this train is very easy as compared to other jam packed trains......
As i travel from SC --> VSKP --> SC almost every weekend.
SC to VSKP I prefer Godavari. As I can directly reach SC from my office itself with a small bag.
Luxury here :
This train always starts from PF1 with 10-15 mins late in SC JN due heavy cargo loading, So even if u r late still u can catch the running train (This happens with me always)
In return (VSKP to SC) i prefer this pretty duronto bcoz it starts at late night(vskp) and arrives SC JN early, by overtaking VSKP Garib Rath at city Out Skirts.
I see many people travelling in GaribRath(GR) feeling little jealous of this train while overtaking it and few people like me in duronto feel little proud(bcoz of last minute overtake)
Booking Tickets:
Every month first once i get my salary i open my irctc and then book To & Fro tickets for all weekends & festivals for the next 1 or 2 months (I have 3 IRCTC Accounts). Same process gets repeated every month
