Overall occupancy for the week I'll improve but they should revised timings in the reverse too as its too early dep in YPR now. No train on Friday to Hyderabad is definetly a blow to travellers as Fridays used to be 100% when it is in 2050 slot.
Due to the timings, the Friday slot currently might not be full from YPR. So at least starting in better slot from Hyd on Friday is also helpful for better patronage from SC - YPR. Atleast 1 side SCR lobbying is successful. SWR won't agree for departure timings change I guess.

Great sign, finally friday run from HYD. Also speed up my massive 1 hr 35 min. But if SWR managed to get it at by 7 am pakka its a huge hit. Any ways still it get good demand as its Sunday , friday from SCR.
YPR-SC GR at Rajanukunte on the platform line as it waited for Rajkot-CBE exp to cross through. Hardly 2 coaches were filled. It would even be better to cancel it on weekdays and run as per demand. Captured yesterday.
