As its most of the time punctual, you get ample time at GTL station. Some say, its a boring train because of the wait at GTl for coupling with Prashanti NIlayam. But use the time wisely and smartly. Even chain route takes same amount of time except that instead of being stationary, you will be on the move.
So use the train to Goto a First Show at Chaitanya Thatre (Best in town) or any other theater. Get relaxed and entertained. You can watch the movie, then have dinner in town before coming to the station to board the train. We did it easily and watched Shatamanam Bhavati Telugu movie. Attached our selfie (First Pic) at the theatre.

may also opt to hire a round trip auto to visit the district famous, ancient Kasapuram Anjaneya Swamy temple (Hanuman Temple). 14 kms oneway.

Or just simply stay at the station or inside your coach and take rest or explore the station.

If your travelling from goa(vasco) to hyderabad(kacheguda) please avoid travelling in this train as this train stops remains idle for 5 hours at platform 5 of guntakal instead take a chain route from vasco to hyderabad and save precious time

The Chain route also takes the same amount of time. Instead better opt to rest at GTL on this train or goto a Movie.
