Feb 07 2017 (18:04)   12270/Hazrat Nizamuddin - Chennai Central Duronto Express | NZM/Hazrat Nizamuddin (7 PFs)

As usual, Chennai Duronto departing late from NZM, problem compounded by one rake.
Interesting thing is it has been given a 22:30 departure from NZM tonight and will run just slightly ahead of the mighty TN. Would be interesting to see if TN keeps up or even manage to overtake it (considering the not-so-good priority the Duronto gets).

Duronto is cleared for 120 upto Lalitpur only and gets good priority only in NCR and SCR.
But you are right sir, that with its lesser stops, it will build a lead over TN.
Anyways, will be an interesting cat and mouse chase :-)

Nearly one month back, Duronto departed just 15mins behind TN, still trailed it till MAS. TN arrived MAS at 9:50AM while NZM-MAS Duronto arrived at 10:00AM. It doesn't get good priority though its running time is lesser than TN.

yeah..it all depends on the controller as well as the crew allocation too...as zones have to take care of the crew availability too as the train is running late which is completely out of schedule... so its all at the desertion of section controllers ..if they decide to let it crawl right behind TN then no one can do anything about it :D

Sir, the most convenient way would be (subject to time of the day):
- Take Yellow line till Rajiv Chowk
- Change over to blue line going towards Dwarka and deboard at Karol Bagh.
- Take rickshaw/auto/cab to Sarai Rohilla.

I am traveling by this train to Bhopal. Link express from VSKP is running right time. Whereas Dakshin express from Secunderabad is rescheduled by 10 hours. Will this train stand at Kazipet for 10 hours? Or will they depart link train separately? Please help.
Edit- pics from derailment site are attached.

Mostly it will depart independently from Kazipet without waiting for the Secunderabad portion.
I have seen the short rake arrive independently at Okhla twice, hauled by Kazipet WAG5.

Sir, nearest metro station is Indraprastha on the Blue Line (Dwarka-Noida/Dilshad Garden).
You can exit towards the Sarai Kale Khan side of Nzm and take an auto/taxi/Uber etc. Should take around 20 mins depending on traffic.
