Hi Rail fans, I would like to share my recent experience on the newly started BCT-NDLS duronto express.
I travelled on 10/4/12 on the 22210 duronto express from NDLS to BCT in 1A. I am sure the train composition is already posted here but am still confirming it
ENG-EOG-B1-B2-B3-B4-B5-B6-B7-B8-B9-A1-A2-A3-PC-H1-EOG
It's in UP direction. The consist will reverse in DN direction.
Anyways, the train left exactly at 23.30 hrs from PF3 of NDLS. I got the coupe B surprisingly since I was travelling alone. All those waiting for this train to become popular, guess it has. The 1A coach was fully occupied and so were all 2A coaches. A point I would surely like to

mention that despite being brand new LHB rake, the consist shook disastrously everytime the train crossed 110 kmph mark. So much that even the food and tea cups spilled at times for most passengers. So much for fine dine table in 1A. There was one attendant for the coach, who was always in a hurry to set up tables, drop food in your plate and leave. The food was really good though, cooked nicely. Breakfast was around 9 am. They did not serve tea/coffee after breakfast. I asked for it around 10.30 since I am a tea person. The lunch was real late, the soup commencing at 13.45 and lunch immediately around 2 pm. One more important aspect is train reached BCT sharp at 16.20 hours instead of 17.00 that is put up on schedule. Even the TT said it reaches by 16.20 always. Maybe railways should change the time.
All in all a good train but I really hope they adorn the 1A like rajdhanis. It looks dull and out of taste with fabric and wires unevenly cut.
Hope to hear more experiences of travelling on this train!!

I mean there were wires peeping out from a aperture(square of around 2 inches in diameter) below the mirror that was in front of me. Nice multicolored wires.

No idea. Honestly LHB should not even at 140+, but as i said everytime it crossed 110, it started to shake. Passed mathura around 01.30, shortly after clocked 135 on GPS and lying in bed it was the feel to someone shaking your bed violently!!!

    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.
