We myself and my wife made a trip(1AC) on Duronto 12223 to Ernakulam on 28th February,2012 and back on 11th March 2012 on 12224.we are very happy to state that the journey was excellent. The food was top class. It made it on time (little early) at Ernakulam and on time at LTT The only thing to complain is the AC,
it was too cold. Only on our way back we understood that on request the could lower the temp.

Nothing of that sort sir, even if you feel you can complain against them. food is prepared from the base kitchens at stations. so chances that it might be little cold.

i was traveled by this train in feb 2012...wonder all facilities were awesome..no rats were there as somebody mentioned that there were some rats in a train...even for food facility is awesome..since this train departs from Cochin at 9:30 PM so no dinner allotted but yes after departing this train from Cochin IRCTC staff will immediately come and ask for veg or non-veg..and early morning i get tea or coffee along with breakfast bread butter cutlet & bread omlet for non veg lovers along with 2 packets of slice ..also they had given one bisleri per person per day.. Technical halt at Ratnagiri is basically for loading the lunch Caterer for this lunch Drive-inn (Carnival) Restaurant, Ratanagiri.For lunch there was Tomato soup as starter Mutter panner, Dal Fry,Jeera Rice,Gulabjam,Salad,1 Cup curd & 3 chapati...
So
...
more...
whole journey was fantastic & speedy one..even when we reach at panvel station that time train was running very slow i wonder whether she take halt but she didn't.I never experience the speedy show by WDM3D in b/w Thane to kurla..We were at thane station nearly about 6.15 but after this is was wonder LP has touched this beauty at 6.28 at Kurla Station...
But as per my opinion kurla is the very worst station in suburbs..There are many long route trains which operated by kurla station but no normal services has been given..There is no single footbridge..Taxi drivers are came in your compartment when train gets slow down on tracks and if you are new in mumbai then they will charge very heavy fare to you...even the parking facility outside station was very bad one...
But for those who need fast & throughout journey i will definitely recommend this train.

No 1A in 12217 is equivalent to any other SF/Exp trains while 12223 is that of Rajdhani's.

H indicates - 1st AC
A indicates - 2nd AC
and thus
HA indicates - combind coach of 1st AC and 2nd AC (have both the classes in one boggie)
HA1 indicates - 1st AC
...

cum 2nd AC coach no. 1 (normaly such combined class coach in never more than 1 in a Train).
in the case of H1 its a additional coach similar to a1 when a1 is full.

H denotes AC First Class and 1 denotes Coach #1 (Note: Coach does not stand 4 coach position frm loco).
Thus,
H1 denotes AC First Class Coach #1

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
