Ticket availability is very poor. Should have additional Sleeper and 3AC coach for convenience. Tickets are not available even on 100th day from now.

As per the Time Table, this train was supposed to be converted to AC Duronto without 1st AC. I think the existing rake composition is better, they should not change.

CR will not Convert this train in to AC duronto as demands for Nagpur is huge for full year. & After Vidarbh extended to Gondia it is become tough to get ticket in Sewagram. Nandigram & LTT Ajni are useful for Intermediate passengers mostly, not for E2E. So i dont think CR will convert SL duronto in to AC.

Impossible. It has huge SL demand. It runs with 2 extra SL coaches but still no reduction in demand. It might get Lhb rakes but no way it will be converted into an full Ac Duranto

Section is a single line token territory. Trains have to slow down at all stations having loop lines at 35 kmph for token exchange. So a normal train takes 3:30 to 4 hrs for Veraval - Rajkot section of 185 kms.
