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.

I traveled by the Premium 02203 From Rajahmundry to Secunderabad on the 6th December.The train arrived late at RJY by about an Hour and arrived at Secunderabad 2 hours late. It was detained at VIJAYAWADA Jn for more than an Hour. Form BZA it was to run non-stop to secunderabad, but the authorities have allowed GARIBRATH which is not non-sto before it and consequently we lost lot of time.
The tickets can not be cancelled. This is a clear uncontrolled monoploy and no one is caring for the timing. It was to take 9 and half hours from VSKP but it took that much time from RJY.
is : NOT TO TRAVEL BY ANY SPECIAL TRAIN, as the authorities never care to respect the train schedule

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
