The time I started my journey is right on time. It's fast and just the way I think. If any foreigners will come an get on this train they'll get the feeling of the real Indian Train.
I have traveled in a Two tier A/C Coach which is excellent in of course and the seats are good but not good to my liking though. Blankets provided are nice and cleaned. Washrooms are also neat and tidy. Journey didn't get me wrong feeling like As I'm traveling in a regular coach but it's like bang for the buck.
Coming to the food they served is good, we have vegetarian food also because while on a journey I can't afford to have a upset stomach by eating non-veg. Servers served us well. It just took me 15 hours of journey from morning till night at 10pm in the night. The train also didn't got stopped unnecessarily. And it was a pleasant train to have the journey on.
Train Journey is boring but the snacks which comes in between the journey will be really good and one will have to taste the snacks. Also no of stoppages will be more to this train and most appreciable thing is the neatness in the train. Thanks to Indian Railways and Eco Rly division for excellent maintenance of the rail Bogies.
Comfortable, the train was over crowded due vacations and marriages crowed. Services, neatness of toilets were good. We have travelled by A/c chair car. The A/c was comfortable. Catering was satisfactory. Never felt any inconvenience. As for as Visakhapatnam city it is a beautiful place. The food in the hotel was homely.
I went to the marriage of my cousin and after completing I came to the Railway Station but train was 45 min late. Then it started after 10 min and due to crossings they was a delay of 1. 35 min till I reach destination, it was a bad journey experience in my life.
The distance is more. So it is preferable to go by train. Train starts at Eluru at 2. 30 pm reaches Vizag at 8 pm. Good train with chair car. Food available, usually maintains time discipline. But some times cant tell. I have travelled in A/C chair car. Nice journey, once I went by bus also but it is hectic. Do go by train only, lot of trains available in this route from Vijayawada to Vizag.
Many trains are available from Vijayawada to Hyderabad. Janmabhoomi is superfast express to reach Hyderabad. I personally prefer train journey rather than bus as it is more economical to reach destination and had great choice of food that is available on train. Moreover daytime bus journey is a bit boring. Places to be visited at Hyderabad are Film city, Birla mandir, Charminar and many more. Golconda fort is a place of historical heritage and a must visit place.
The train is one hour delayed due to unexpected cause. But the facilities are nice. The food provided by the management is good. It reached the destination very quickly. The toilets in the train are not quite good. Overall it is a good journey to Hyderabad with minimum charges compared to bus. I loved this journey by train.
