Friends will be traveling on this train today from YPR to NDL on my way to Ahobilam. This pilgrimage will also take me to Tirupati and if time permits to Sri Kalahasti too. Hope to bring some updates whenever possible. Thanks.

Friends Seshadri Exp reached SBC at around 1.05pm. I know there wasn't much regarding IR here but am a novice regarding IR here. I hope you liked my trip blog as I did. Thanks for visiting the blog. An important TIP if you get off at SBC there is a dedicated counter for OLA Cabs next to prepaid auto stand. Only Rs 6/km for Micro but the only difference is the base fare is Rs 75 instead of 40 for pick ups at SBC,Majestic and BLR. Do not get ripped off by unscrupulous auto drivers and cabbies waiting for bait at the entrance. This TIP is especially for passengers arriving at SBC for the very first time. Thanks.

I used to travel by this train many times some years ago. Recently I travelled and was very disappointed that the no. of UR coaches has come down from 6 to 3.
This is the lifeline for Rayalseema region to go to their capital region. Prashanti is always full at SBC itself. Then this was the lonely train catering to this region and used to get full even then. Now its a sad situation... it gets filled up at YPR and at YNK its standing. From there on its a total struggle to get into the UR coaches.

The DMM tri-weekly only recently got 2 UR coaches. That too is filled full, I was told. The only remaining hope is Amaravati, which again comes jam packed.

This should be made Daily by changing its slot or changing the slot of ypr - kcg tri weekly.. Ideally, YPR KCG Triweekly should be made run in teh slot of GR.
The current BZA DMM is made to run on a round about route not only to give capital connectivity to NDL-YA route, but primarily to give conectivity between NDL-YA route and ATP.. it was actually made to run on that route by lobbying of JC. But a DEMU would be sufficient for the same. And the current slot of BZA DMM between BZA and NDL should be given to a daily express i.e BZA - HX which should have slip coaches to KRNT.

Bza dmm should run on straight route rather nandyal- ya route just for the sake of it else MPS of the section could be improved.
No additional advantage is being taken from the new line, and 2 loco reversals with a 2 hrs gap may cause low preference amongst the passengers.
Else they could start another train in the same slot or make the existing one biweekly as days of run are same as mtm ypr express.
there any station works going on nearby like bypass lanes?

earlier when we requested for this train to run via gtl people insisted that it requires loco reversal and time waste now its current run it takes 2 loco reversal and long too.
finally this train became flop train for people running in this with most expensive fare.

See ap express how it is suffering with old coaches and with slack tt
Another train should not be scapegoat which is running well (bza-dmm express).

I cannot agree more on what you said. AC AP schedule was ruined by VSKP extension. Not to say anything bad about VSKP, its all on ECoR which doesnt care about VSKP. DMM-BZA is entirely within SCR, So there is a lot more schedule flexibility. There are plans for this train to be extended till HUP - Pending approval from SWR.

I was saying that first vskp should separate from ecor which is creating problems in vskp division
,with vskp trains tt and maintenance etc.
First we should cured this problem
If new trains r extension of train are allocated to vskp r if railways' give finance assistance to vskp how vskp will get justice it comes in ecor judiciary
think first vskp should concentrate on this problem it is root cause.

chances are very bleak if you ask PQWL ...if it is GNWL it will surely confirm...
try tatkal or change the starting point to MTM and select Boarding point as BZA and see if it falls under GNWL and book accordingly

For 24th Nov, 2017
Book from BZA to YNK and it is GNWL 14 in Sleeper and RAC13 in 3AC and RAC7 in 2AC ..Both 3A or 2A will surely confirm where as Sleeper may max fall into RAC as it has close to 120 as RAC allocation..
