New train to Manuguru!

Announced two years ago by Lalu, it took it's sweet time coming. The new train Secunderabad-Manuguru Superfast is now a reality and flags off on it's first journey today. The details are vague but going by the new time table, it takes about an hour less for the full journey. The tri-weekly schedule is a dampener for many and the odd timings(starts at 1905 from Secunderabad and reaches at 0230!) are not helping either. One the plus side, we no longer have to make do in a meagre 6 bogies for the Machilipatnam express to drag.



So a new engine, more bogies, faster speed.... can't wait to check it out!
