If at all SWR runs MAQ Bidar, I bet it would be either on odd timings or will not run with avg speed 44 kmph.
Yesterday, I was Stunned to see that, more than 30 KSRTC Airvat Category buses ply daily between B'luru and M'luru...
If a duronto is introduced, it will surely be a hit.

I would say Belagavi & Hubbali desperately need a Daily night train & not a Weekly as literally not a single day there would be a single berth available in Rani Chennamma in Current Booking in any of the classes including 1A. And one need not say the condition of General Coaches of RC.

One of the in-justified steps taken by SWR, by dragging OT of SKr to Tumkur SBC section..
By this, not only 12630/22686, but this train is also been affected...
Hope SWR speeds up this train by removal of unnecessary stops

Jul 10 2017 (12:48)   Manduadih-Rameswaram Weekly Express tops India's most-delayed trains list

Southern Railway^~   192 news posts
Entry# 2348250   News Entry# 307973         Tags   Past Edits
Indian Railways is notorious for its trains running behind schedule. However, which train in particular causes the most hardship for passengers? That would be the Manduadih-Rameswaram Weekly Express, according to a survey conducted by travel search application Ixigo. The express tops the list of trains that run late with the highest average delay time of 11.5 hours.
The train starts from Manduadih in Uttar Pradesh and travels more than 2,000 km to reach Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu. The other worst performing trains include the Himgiri super-fast Express, which travels from West Bengal's Howrah to Jammu and Kashmir's Jammu Tawi, with an average delay of 9.3 hours and the Jan Nayak Express, which runs between Amritsar in Punjab and Darbhanga in Bihar, with

a delay time of 8.9 hours.
The survey, which was conducted among more than 20 million customers of Ixigo, also looked into the passengers' favourite railway stations. Among which, Vadodara topped the list, followed by Nagpur and the Howrah railway station. Among the lowest rated stations were New Delhi, Pune, and Kanpur.
In terms of favourite trains, the top three on the list were Bikaner-Delhi SF Express, the Mumbai-Jaisalmer SF Express, and the New Delhi Duronto Express. The worst-rated trains were the Patna-Kota Express, the Jharkhand Express, and the Seemanchal Express.
Commenting on these findings, Ixigo Chief Executive Officer and co-founder Aloke Bajpai said, "This survey takes into account the 200,000 user ratings and reviews on our app. We noted that cleanliness is very important for travellers at railway stations, which is why Tatanagar Junction was among the stations ranked at the top."
"Rajkot Junction station also received very positive reviews owing to its high standard of safety, which is every traveller's paramount concern. Food at railway stations is something that most Indian travellers appreciate and Karnataka's Davangere Station stood out as the top station serving good food. Travellers rated the Bikaner-Delhi SF Express as the cleanest train and the Ahmedabad-Mumbai Duronto Express as the train serving the best food," he added.
Ixigo has become one of India’s largest train information apps with five million monthly active users. It helps 800,000 train travellers every day from more than 200 Indian towns. It also offers features such as PNR Prediction for waiting list tickets, train PNR Status, running status, platform number, coach position, etc.
Most-delayed trains in India
1. Manduadih-Rameswaram Weekly Express: 11.5 hours delay
2. Himgiri SF Express: 9.32 hours delay
3. Jan Nayak Express: 8.9 hours delay
4. Swatantrata Senani Express: 8.49 hours delay
5. Lucknow-Prayag Passenger: 7.38 hours delay

After Chennai, the train continuously runs on MPS and arrives RMM on time

Jul 05 2017 (13:24)   12779/Goa Express (PT) | MTJ/Mathura Junction (10 PFs)

GOA SK TO VSG~   6275 blog posts   613 correct pred (67% accurate)
Entry# 2342800            Tags   Past Edits
Now who's responsible for this goof ? NCR or NR ?
12621 arrived NZM 23 minutes early at 12779 slot and 12779 arrived 15 minutes late around 12621 slot. 12779 took 10 minutes halt at MTJ instead of scheduled 2 minutes one, so most probably NCR caused the goof at MTJ.
Don't understand what problem NCR has running 12779 on time, it's the only state named SFs running from South to get trolled in NCR, every week 2 to 4 times have to face unnecessary TN overtakes.

Yes among South bound SF trains only 12779 has bad arrival record at NZM only because of these useless 12621 overtakes, 12779 has slack between MTJ to NZM such that even 45 minutes delay be recovered but it's trolled mostly in favour of 12621.
