Bahot rush hota hai. Drunk bhi bahot saare log hote hai evening time me but people friendly hote hai. Fighting ya seats ke liye koi maar peet nahi hoti. Drunk people bhi apne me hi rehte hai. But crowded bahot hogi no doubt about it

Morning time might be having less rush compared to evening. But I would still advise you to reach station 30mins to 1h before departure of train and quickly get a seat in general coach.

we travel frequently to jalandhar and we are fed up with 18507/08 hirakud express .it comes late every time.instead we prefer samata/swarnajayante to vskp. a stop near parvathipuram/bobilli will be good.and stop at simhachalam ,because maximum people get down there and rush on vskp station is reduced.

As an engineering 1st year student from Vizag studying in Delhi,I was very happy when this train was announced as I thought I wouldn't have to waste two complete days going home travelling by SJ,Samata and Link.But after this train's introduction,its timetable promptly led me to book 2 sets of return journeys by Air India as it was much more comfortable paying 4k for 2hrs rather than 3k for 36 hrs.Vizag-Delhi will be having 5 daily flights (6 considering unreliable Spicejet) starting late November and this train will not even be a choice for majority of the flight takers because of its schedule.Many argue that the timetable has been prepared so due to scheduling constraints.But,when AC trains are now such important money-spinners and expensive LHB rakes have been provided for this train,I fail to see the justification for this horrendous timetable which makes this train slower than both SJ and Samata,trains...
which give 6 AC coaches in capacity a day.
I agree that NDLS-VSKP via BZA is a route that does not warrant 7 3A's daily (planned) in addition to existing capacity,let alone 5 2A's,but that does not mean that IR should just run this train for the sake of running it.This train was born out of political compulsions,but IR should try to make the best out of the given circumstances.A total of 5 coaches (2X3A and 3X2A) can be removed and augmented in trains which need them.In the meanwhile IR should improve this train's schedule and wait for passenger traffic to pickup and then add coaches as necessary.
I hope IR wakes up and seriously tries to improve the train's occupancy.
P.S. A departure about 20-25 min. after Chennai GR/Raj/Dur can be feasible with an evening arrival at VSKP in about 28-29 hours.Only a suggestion,please give any other alternatives!

answer given by railway customer care online complaints:
Complaint Details :
Complaint Description : we request please change the timings of acandhra pradesh express please we are feeling discomfort as there no difference between
a passenger service and sf train with lhb newcoaches. please do it 28 -30hrs,
will be so helpful
Closing Remarks: Timing of a train is decided with the co=ordination of other passing Railways depending upon maintenance facilities available at
terminating station. This train belongs to Northern Railway and the maintenance facilities is available in night time at New Delhi.
Hence, timings are fixed as per the convenience of the maintenance time at New Delhi

    -@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,...
