What a glory this train has!! It was first introduced as ICE between vijayawada and tirupatilater it got extended to secunderabad later to nizamabad and finally now it is running between Adilabad and Tirupati As now state got divided a similar train should be introduced between parvatipuram/parvatipuram town to tirupati
Thanks! I wasn't sure of that. All the sources I checked had it as SC-GNT, but one or two had it as Hyderabad-Vijayawada. I presumed the two cities were just mentioned casually to indicate connectivity and not as the exact terminals. Thanks for providing the additional info! I do remember seeing it as HYB-TPTY. We used to cross it while traveling by Gautami in both directions.
One more interesting point. IT was also the first train to run with electric traction on Gudur-RU route after it was electrified. I think it used to have a loco change at RU as the RU-TPTY section wasn't electrified at the time.
May 11 2017 (12:55) But NTES shows it arrived at 21:40
Too bad controlling by SCR, which is actually one of the best for punctuality. Travelled on 7th May, it was stopped at RU outer for 30mins, at RU Pf-3 for 15mins, atlast TPTY at 22:30. But NTES shows it arrived at 21:40 while it reached RU only at 22:00..
That time will be cover for delay. If its got crossing. So its will be cover the time. ఆ సమయం ఎందుకంటే ఈ రైలు ముందు స్టేషన్స్ లో క్రాసింగ్ పెట్టడం వలన ఆలస్యం అవుతుంది కావున, ఆ ఆలస్యం ను ఈ సమయం లో సర్దుబాటు అవుతుంది. ప్రతి రైలు కీ ఇలానే ఉంటుంది.
This train regularly comes to cabin at on time or by 1pm. After that the train gets delay by more time due to train have to come into platform # 1. In this process all arrival and departure train will go and Krishna exp will wait more time there. It'll attaching the empty milk van to go to RU.
Well said. This should be made a 24 coacher considering the rush, or a parallel day-time ICE via GNT should be introduced also doubling as a much needed connection from GNT to TPTY. An ONT between SC-Adilabad will be good. Now the NZB-Peddapalli route has been completed, so hopefully an alternative train between Adilabad/NZB - TPTY can be run and reduce the end-to-end rush on this one.
