JOURNEY FROM SANTRAGACHI TO CHENNAI CENTRAL
Part I: Santragachi to Khurda Road
SANTRAGACHI : ON TIME
KHARAGPUR : 05 MIN. LATE
BALASORE
...
more...
: 10 MIN. LATE
CUTTACK : 15 MIN. LATE
KHURDA ROAD : 10 MIN. LATE
The train usually tries to maintain its schedule but gets delayed on some runs due to heavy traffic.
Part II: Khurda Road to Visakhapatnam
KHURDA ROAD : 10 MIN. LATE
VISAKHAPATNAM : 05 MIN. LATE
The train has a great run in this section. If you can, track its speed. It will be close to MPS for the entire night. Myself observed it recently. The average speed of 81 km/hr between Khurda Road and Vizianagram is realistically achieved on most runs.
Part III: Visakhapatnam to Vijayawada
VISAKHAPATNAM : 05 MIN. LATE
SAMALKOT : 10 MIN. LATE
RAJAHMUNDRY : 15 MIN. LATE
TADEPALLIGUDEM : 15 MIN. LATE
VIJAYAWADA : 15 MIN. LATE
The train gets slightly delayed due to high morning traffic in this section. Add to that huge freight traffic after Samalkot. Runs ahead of AP A.C. Exp. till Vijayawada. AP A.C. Exp. is halted at Outer and this A.C. Exp. is usually given preference.
Part IV: Vijayawada to Chennai Central
VIJAYAWADA : 15 MIN. LATE
ONGOLE : 05 MIN. LATE
NELLORE : 05 MIN. LATE
GUDUR : ON TIME
SULLURUPETA : ON TIME
CHENNAI CENTRAL: 15 MIN. LATE
The train has a thrashing run till Nellore. Thrashes apart many stations at MPS. The afternoon warmness is neglected because of the speed. After Nellore, the real crawling begins. Train might arrive Before Time at Sullurupeta (happened during my run). After Sullurupeta, crawling will continue. Just before Chennai, Vijayawada Jan-Shatabdi might overtake this train. The run through the Chennai Suburbs is very slow, after Minjur. Might be held up at Chennai Central Outer due to huge number of late night departures.

Yes....by one hour atleast....the load is just 17 coaches....so pick-up is very high....even with a WAP-1....
I really appreciate the schedule it maintains till Nellore....hats off to the overnight blast....and the late afternoon blast after Krishna Canal....
Kept thrashing stations at MPS for over an hour....Tenali....Bapatia....Chirala....

Overall it is a good train
Dont worry about its 23:00 arr at mas. Mas is a very good station .i booked retiring rooms there . The station looks as if it were only 20:00 . So dont hesitate to book this train if you are travelling to mas or sbc (take shatabdi next morning).
