In the name of speeding up, Andhra Pradesh express has been given a TT most unsuitable to Andhra Pradesh. Covers all stops in AP at midnight and enters Telengana during daytime.
While maintaining same speed, VSKP departure should be changed to 7am, BZA 12noon, with very comfortable time for all stations in AP, and reach NDLS accordingly.

Don't get too much hurt Sirs, it is just a railfan pointing out my ideas. Tamilnadu's capital is just at the edge of the State, that's why there are no stops in TN. I have earlier pointed out same problem with TN Sampark Kranti, covers many stops in TN at midnight. Please don't conclude that I am so mean to suggest to change AP's TT because it overtakes TN. And most likely TN won't get LHB soon because present rake serves current TT very well.

Rajdhani can be VSKP-NDLS via VZM, Raipur, etc.
Duronto can be run from TPTY-NDLS via BZA, NGP
Both will be daily

One fast train (pref RAJ) from new capital VSKP to NDLS is a must, atleast bi-weekly. This will be needed in future because many people will have to compulsorily travel between the capitals. Even Chennai Rajdhani is bi-weekly only. Other than this all other trains can go via BZA.

Coimbatore departure 5am has very very minimal chance of patronage. Even Uday at 5:45 is getting nothing.

Uday departure can be changed to 6:30am and 06028 can depart at 5:50am.
Both will get more patronage. However, both should be speeded up also.

This time slot from CBE is not that bad as all say. Coimbatore needed trains to Chennai in three timings - one early morning, one at around 10am and another in the night (in timings of 12682). Now one is given. I know many people who prefer early morning trains to Salem/Katpadi/chennai. Intercity has lot of demand as it could not able to meet the morning demand to Chennai alone eventhough there was Westcoast along with. So this train is quiet good one indeed. Departure time is well and good but only suggestion is to increase the speed to reach MAS within 6.5 hrs, if so then it will be more preferable. SR should give this one priority and speed up.
issue is the pricing. Executive class cost around 2000 without catering. They should include catering as done to Shatabdi.
These specials are picking up. Today's run has has good occupancy compared to inaugural run, especially in 06027. Chair car is filling well but executive class is not attracting due to this pricing and no catering.
And to all, don't blame SR for this timings and AC special. Atleast they have considered CBE for a new train to Mas, as People have been requesting for a additional train parallel to 12680 since years. Atleast they have accepted and running a new one with almost new coaches which have more chances of getting regularised.
This is my view regarding this new train from Coimbatore.

If passengers are available then great.
Agree with you that with modern LHB coaches & double-line, full AC train can reach in less than 6:30hours
