The Andhra Pradesh Express is a superfast South Central Railway train that runs between Hyderabad and New Delhi. It operates daily, taking around 27 hours to cover the distance while passing through the states of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh before reaching New Delhi.

Indian Railways has allocated the service number 12723 for the Hyderabad–New Delhi run, and service number 12724 for the New Delhi–Hyderabad run. The train service was first commissioned by Madhu Dandavate in 1976.

Change of name

After the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh Express runs from Telangana and hence, the name of the train will be renamed as Telangana Express with effect from 15 November 2015. The new train between Visakhapatnam-Delhi via Vijayawada will be named as AP Express.
