One thing SCR should do that this train's dep time from secunderabad should be around 06.30 a.m, and the destn. terminal at kolkata should be either shifted to santragachi or sealdah just like the puri sealdah duronto.

sealdah or kolkata terminal should be a better option if the terminal needs to be shifted....there should be some south bound trains which should depart from eastern railway stations within the kolkata region !!!

[Note: Due to Lack of Locos at SRC Shed no proper link is available for this train from Shalimar to VishakhaPatnam (VSKP),
One more point to be Noticed is the Livery of Coach is Red n Grey,i.e. the typical Colour of LHB Rajdhani coaches,but this train is not a Rajdhani,just only a AC Express]
In that case this train could be provided VSKP WAM4/WAP4 between VSKP-SHM-VSKP on a regular basis.

This train takes out whatever loco ECOR allots it from VSKP while on its way towards SHM. Sometime you may find VSKP, sometimes BSL.
Once this was also hauled by a WAP-4.

I think this train should be converted to a Duronto , with departure time from SC between 7:45 and 8 am every tuesday and saturday .Also , pantry car should be added with this train.Hopefully this could improve the patronage of this train.Also, the train 22850 should be made bi-weekly with departure days of friday and sunday.Probably the departure time could be set between 8:30 and 9 in the morning and pantry should be added.This would benefit the huge population of the bengali youth working in the IT sector here in Hyderabad in a major way !!!!

This site is saying that 12774 sc - shm sf ac express have catering services but on its first journey from shalimar I travelled trun vskp but there was no catering. I have to board the same train on 11th fron sc and so i want to ask if there any catering on train as it not so easy to carry food upto 24hrs journey.
I think they should introduce catering facilities at least in this train...if they cannot add pantry car!!!Traveling in any train without food becomes really painful...no matter how comfortable the train is !!! And moreover the SCR authorities should keep in mind that the popularity of this train might increase as time passes and this train becomes older....so they should also consider increasing the frequency ofthis train from weekly to at-least tri-weekly !!!

Janta Special between SRC to HYB...
will these unreserved specials clear the extra rush?
what i hv normally seen is that ur coaches oof spcls generally run vacant for the simple reason that the class of people using unreserved coaches are not so aquainted with internet/newspaper/media...
had it been a reserved special, would have surely cleared some rush...
