It the best train to travel to Hyderabad. It starts at 12:30 in night from CST & reaches next day by 12.00 am full night travel. One can have dinner at home & lunch at Hyderabad. We suggest to travel with this train while visiting Hyderabad.
We boarded the train at CST, Mumbai at 21.40 and the train started on time at 21.50. You can get meals on train. The train made 5-6 stops and we reached Solapur at 06.05 am. The train reaches about half and hour late. Since we had booked upper sleep berth sleep was no problem. However there were many people on the train whose tickets were not confirmed and they kept talking all night, which was very disturbing. TC did not check either the tickets or identity card and was interested in only people with no tickets or with general tickets in reserved compartment. Overall it was a safe journey and never felt unsafe at any point of time. Do carry water as there are not many stops for the train.
