All are strong candidates and they were made SF by reducing the scheduled timings by some minutes so that the avg speed is just stretched to the thresh hold of 55kmph set by a court order. These SFs are a result of policy of indirect fare increase adopted by IR.

Please be informed that allotting LHB is not the ultimate favor. Many factors are considered before allotting LHB to a train. Otherwise there are many stronger contenders there for the same. Besides, LHB-fication is the IR policy, not a 'favor'. All the existing trains are going to get LHB sooner or later eventually.

Time has come for VSKP to say Good bye to ECoR ..
Announcement on Vizag zone after Union Budget, says Sujana
: Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has requested the Railway Ministry to take an expeditious decision on the creation of Visakhapatnam railway zone.
The Chief Minister, accompanied by Union Minister Y.S. Chowdary and P. Ashok Gajapati Raju, called on Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu

in New Delhi on Tuesday. Mr. Naidu submitted representation seeking speedy completion of pending works in the State, including connectivity between Amaravati and major cities in the south through high-speed trains.
He wanted the Railway Ministry to make sufficient budgetary allocations for the completion of the Kakinada-Pithapuram, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti and Guntukal-Srikalahasti lines besides requesting the Centre to hand over maintenance of the old bridge at Rajahmundry to the State Government. The State emphasised the need for ensuring that the allocations were made in the upcoming railway budget.
Mr. Chowdary said the Centre had given in-principle clearance for the railway zone in Visakhapatnam and the zone would be announced after the Union Cabinet formally gives its nod.
Development package
Creation of the special railway zone was part of the special development package assured to the State post bifurcation.
The State had also sought the Ministry to take up works on feeder line connecting the new capital Amaravati with Guntur and Vijayawada. The Ministry was requested to consider the proposal for laying third line between Visakhapatnam and Chennai besides examining the proposals for development of infrastructure at important railway stations through joint ventures.
The Railway Minister, he said, positively responded to the representation and promised that surveys would be undertaken on the proposals submitted by the State Government as well as the MPs from the State.
Thrust areas
Sufficient budgetary allocations for completion of Kakinada-Pithapuram, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti, Guntukal-Srikalahasti lines
Commencement of works on feeder line connecting the new capital Amaravati with Guntur and Vijayawada

how come it is catering both the cities
quota for VSKP had been decreased by ECoR, infact BBS has more quota than VSKP, for its extended trains - isn't true?
new coaches allotted to WAT are replaced by old coaches within weeks of their inauguration - isn't true?
new trains proposed for VSKP are rejected by ECoR stating irrelevant reasons and the same
...
more...
trains are lobbied to start from BBS - isn't true
trains running from BBS are given proper/effecient TT, while that of VSKP are given TT full of slacks or less TAT - isn't true?

Many trains have potential andi....
Falcon 12704 ki 10-15 min TT decrease cheste 60 touch avtadi avg 12703 kooda april nunchi 30min decrease so same applies
Simhapuri 12709 is always BT at Secunderabad so a mere 10-15 min would help the train achieve a 60kmph avg
And even Charminar,with schedule on par with Godavari in SC-BZA,can do miracles with a 60kmph avg....

Charminar slot won't be changed as the gap pf 40min was intentionally given between Gowthami and Charminar just to avoid the delays ... eemadyalo 2-3 goods slots vadulthadu manodu ..anduke charminar ni gelakadu asslau manodu
and if you see Cocanada (6:55AM arrival at SC) which always gets delayed because of its aggressive schedule between BZA-SC (to cover the less sectional Avg of NDD-BZA-NDD route)..mundu gowthami untadi ..daniki OT ivvaledu ...venkalae charminar tharumukuntu vasthadi ..charminar ni Ontime pattuku ravatnaiki okkosari Cocanada ni aapi Charu ni pampisthadu..if you see most of the times Charminar arrives first closely followed by Cocanada ..
