Travelled in 08480 from VSKP to KUR on 11.04.21. 08480 is the only proper overnight train between the state capitals of AP and Odisha(along with 02072, 02840) and the one to run on Sunday night-Monday morning. 3A coaches of this train are Humsafar ones and can be better in terms of comfort. The train maintains time at BBS in spite of getting a little late while arriving at VSKP. Only downside is that it charges PREMIUM TATKAL fare.
