Yes, you will get. Better to book Ola/Uber as they are economical.

My daughter & her friends travelled from Bangalore to Kolkata on the Duronto on 28th March. As this forum had adviced, the Kamats restaurant was quite good where they had their breakfast. Of all the meals served in the train, the lunch on the first day was the best which consisted of roomali roti, dal, paneer & pulao. All the items were hot & good. Teatime they were served a sandwhich, a packet of peanuts , petha & coffee.
Dinner time, the mutter paneer was excellent but dal did not match up to the lunchtime dal. The parathas were thick thus disappointing. Somehow they conned extra helpings of the ice cream which kept them happy.Breakfast ( butter toast, boiled eggs &
Amul kool milk) & lunch (dal, mix veg) were regular fare though the mishti doi was good.
Overall, the fare served was decent & makes one gravitate back to train travel. WiFi services, now available on most long distance trains was missing. The railways need to consider an option of providing aerated drinks & frozen snacks (which can be air fried) in the pantry car on payment for people looking for a change in food.

You cannot board the train, but de-training should not be a problem.

Technical halt means it will definitely halt. But it might not be on platform.

I have an AC2 ticket, but wish to travel in AC1. Can I get the ticket converted enroute/on train or do I have to buy a new ticket prior to travel? I remember that previously there was a provision of conversion but some people are saying it has been abolished.

There used to be a medium gauge train running from Lucknow Alambagh to Lal Kuan. The same is not showing in train searches. Is it not running anymore?

Wonder why railways are doing nothing to correct this jerking? I nearly fell while travelling in a Rajdhani & a lady in front spilt hot coffee over her. Wrote a complaint but there was not even an acknowledgement. Always thought that the railways are very prompt in the followthrough.

railways have already taken steps. new lhbs are being provided with air springs so that jerk is much less. however, they cant dump the older lhbs right now as there is already high rolling stock crisis. so we have to bear with it
