Why does this train run late always ?? I have been observing this for the past 3 weeks that this train barely runs on time. Funny part is Howrah Chennai Mail most often than not runs on time. For eg. last friday this train started late by 2.5 hours, was late by over 5 hours in between and then reached chennai over 3 hours late. And Chennai Mail was right time and didnt get delayed at all. This train gets delayed primarily between cuttack and vskp. Any idea why ?? Anyone ?? The return journey 22808 works perfectly fine...

If we ignore the timings for a moment , then this train may be the next best altenative to coromandel exp.

I am planning to tour Hyderabad and Vizag around mid December this year. Roughly as planned , I would be availing for Falaknuma Express upto SC Jn from HWH. Will be touring HYB for 4 days , after which i have thought of opting godavari express from HYB to VSKP. I guess Vishakhapatnam will be completed in 3 days excluding Araku. Meanwhile I want to board a HWH/SRC bound train on a Thursday so that i reach home on Friday so that my parents can join office then following Monday. Please suggest some good options other than 12842(coromandel exp) for availing. Thanks in advance.

Sunday night from VSKP you can take MAS-SRC AC with LHB coaches. Its a good bet.

my target is a thursday , so that i come on friday , take sat holiday , and monday back to work. So sunday is out of my list. Nevertheless i have thought of 22808 but do not know about the train as such , as in food quality , cleanliness and maintenance . Earlier i travelled on chennai mail which was pretty good , but that was almost ten years ago.

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,...
