I had traveled three times in SDAH NDLS Duronto in June 2010, Sept 2011 and July 2014.
All the journeys of mine had been a "indelible one" in all respect.
The notable positive sides of this train are:
1 Awesome food(both dinner& breakfast) ,praiseworthy punctuality and humble behavior of the "Catering Staff" with respect to serving the food and dealings with
...
more...
the commuters .
2 Compartments are clean and well maintained by the rail staff of Narkeldanga carshed SDAH
3 Good service of the sweepers on board regarding the maintenance of cleanliness of the lavatories.
4 Clean bedsheets & linens provided to passengers
5 Cooperative & amicable behaviour of on board TTEs regarding allotment of berths to RAC/Waitlisted passengers
6 Nice speed and punctuality maintained all over the journey.
To conclude this is one of the best train I think from Kolkata to NDLS route even better than Rajdhani.(From the viewpoint of Fare & other amenities).
I also traveled in Rajdhani in the year 2011,2012 but the amenities are not upto the mark and in fact of poor standard when compared to SDAH Duronto.

Attached Pics:
A. 12260 DN SDAH Duronto at Dhanbad Jn
B. Dinner of 12259 UP NDLS Duronto
C. Loco in Charge of 12260 DN SDAH Duronto HWH WAP7 30329 standing at PF 9C of SDAH
D EOG Van of SDAH NDLS Duronto standing at PF 9 of NDLS
E "Duronto liveried WAP 7" takes the honorable charge of 12259 SDAH NDLS Duronto
I also request the rail fans to make this train as "First Preference" whenever they wish to travel to NDLS from Kolkata.
In a nutshell:
SDAH Duronto is a
1 Nice train
2 First Duronto of IR and
3 Many nostalgic ideals are associated with this train
so my only request is to
"Change it's Loco Link to WAP7 permanently and reinstate the glory of this marvelous service of IR literally and if possible make it a "DAILY SERVICE" like 12267/12268 Mumbai Ahmedabad Duronto".
Request to all users and railfans:
Please give your valuable opinion regarding this "train tip" posted by me.

What inefficiency of ECoR u r talkin abt ?? though ur this post is an old post bt still let me infrm u tht trains upto BBS n PURI r gettin WAP-7s... now BBS Rajdhani is getting a WAP-7 upto BBS n Utkal exp is gettin it too upto Puri.. even BBS duronto is seen with P7 at BLS...but the irony is that sometimes Bbs rajdhani is also seen with SRC WAP-4...it clearly means that after loco reversal at KGP this is provided with a P4 n that P7(which comes frm NDLS with BBS Raj) is used to haul some other train... if P4 is given to it from NDLS then it gets a GZB P4 not SRC's..

Utkal exp gets a TKD WAP-7 regularly bcoz it doesnt undergo loco reversal at KGP n it passes through Hijili...so KGP officials don't get any chance to give it's loco to any other train

Why LGD WAP-7 is not given upto HWH is still a mystery..but what u have written that ECoR doen't have the capacity to run P7 is completely wrong.. For your information SCR does not even give LGD WAP-4 up to HWH/SHM/SDAH...many trains such as Coromandal exp, Falaknuma exp, SC-SHM Exp , East coast exp and many more south bound trains get LGD P4 up to VSKP only...after loco change and rake reversal at VSKP all these trains get SRC WAP-4/ HWH WAP-4/VSKP WAP-4.. And already 3 trains of ECoR ( BBS Rajdhani ,BBS Duronto and Utkal Express ) are getting WAP-7s of GZB and TKD end to end..
