Uniquely coromandel(RSA) and mail runs faster eventhough mail has several halts..mail's run may be late in small stops but it runs faster to cover the lost time in major halts like vijayawada,visakhapatnam,bhubaneshwar and HWH..It can cover even its lost time of 2 hours between vijayawada-Visakhaptnam line.
