Why should trin 12728 Godavari Exp overtake a legendary and prestigious train GT express between Warangal and Vijayawada and insult it? It appears superfluous (just look at the the respective timings and the originating and terminating stations of thee two trains) just to satisfy some unscrupulous political/local pressures. THE CONCERNED RAILWAY AUTHORITIES SHOULD LOOK INTO THIS AND RECTIFY IT.

The timings are different, and GT doesn't bother being overtaken by the Queen of SCR. so Ignore it. :-)
Legendary n prestigious don't work in such places, its the late running, on timing n section controlling.

Because Godavari is SCR train running in SCR territory, whereas GT is SR train.
Zonal politics, zones will definitely give priority to their zone trains than other zone trains.

it is not understood why the godavari express has to overtake the gt express, a legendary train (with much higher end to end speed,) between warangal and vijayawada. the gt express is a much more important train than the godavari express connecting the national capital, new delhi with bhopal, nagpur, and chennai comparatively the godavari express connects only to one state capital, hyderabad. it seems the indian railways, and particularly the southern railway have bowed down to political and.or local pressures, to insult a grand old legendary train, by scheduling godavari express to overtake the gt express for no reason whatsoever, as the arrival time of these trains at vijayawada differs only by a few minutes - the gt express could well precede the godaveri express and proceed to chennai.
late it is seen that the legendary trains like the gt express, howrah - delhi-kalka mail, howrah mumbai mail, howrah chennai mail are not being given the importance they deserve. it is high time that before introducing a new train, the indian railways give due consideration to the possibility of existing legendary trains on the route, if any, can serve the purpose by rescheduling its timings and/or modifying its coach composition instead of introducng a faster train on that route.
it is desirable that by all means overtaking of legendary trains by less important trains (on national level) like godavari express, janmabhoomi express, prashanti express,(admittedly all three are popular state (not national) level) trains) azad hind express, etc be avoided.

It can be operational reason to allow Godavari express to overtake GT express as GT express can cover the lost time in its long run where as godavari express is having limited options to cover the lost time given the number of halts and run time.
