Two express trains get superfast status

Two express trains get superfast status

The Sambalpur-Nanded-Sambalpur and Visakhapatnam-Nanded-Visakhapatnam are among the express trains that have been upgraded to superfast trains by the ministry of railways.

Railway authorities said the average speed of Express trains would go up after getting converted into the category of superfast trains and these trains will be renumbered from the second half of May. The train number 18309 Sambalpur-Nanded Nagavali Express will be renumbered as 12755 with effect from May 26. The train on its return journey will be renumbered from 18310 to 12756 from May 27.

Similarly, the train number 18509 Visakhapatnam-Nanded Express will be renumbered as 12753 with effect from May 27. The train on its return journey will be renumbered from 18510 to 12754 from May 28, a media release said.

The Machilipatnam-Secunderabad-Machilipatnam is another express train that will now run as superfast train. The details regarding revised timing of these trains will be available online on designated websites. The railway authorities, however, did not have specific information about the exact change that will take place in terms of speed for these trains.

Reacting to these changes, rail passengers said a few trains passing from Nanded division of the South Central Railways should have also been considered. “The selection of a few long-distance trains would not have left any room for feelings that Marathwada has been again ignored by the railway ministry,” said Shripad Ratnaparkhe, a rail commuter.
