I'm still not getting what is the use of Duronto trains ? passengers Passengers are allowed to board only from starting point and other passengers in the intermediate stations cannot use these trains
Hello All,
I'm still not getting what is the use of Duronto trains ? Passengers are allowed to board only from starting point and other passengers in the intermediate stations cannot use these trains. Are these trains are profitable ? Can't railway allow passengers to board from technical stops also ?

Welcome to IRI.
Duronto trains are introduced to cater to the end-to-end passengers. It will not cater to passengers to intermediate stations, as they cant board train from intermediate stations and in case they want to get down at intermediate stations, they need to take ticket till the terminating stations.
There are some very successful Duronto trains, like HWH-YPR-HWH and many not-so popular Durontos too. On some occassions earlier, IR had converted some of the non-popular Durontos (like MAS-TVC Duronto) into Superfast trains, to cater to all kind of passengers

Oct 26 (6:04AM)   Two new inter-State trains, four local trains to be soon launched from Bangalore

Two express trains and four local trains will start operating from Bangalore soon, said Railway Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda.
He was speaking after remotely flagging off the ‘Sukhamangalam Yatra’ Tourist Special Train from Yeshwantput here on Saturday. The train will cover,

over nine days, pilgrimage spots including Sholapur, Pandharpur, Ajanta-Ellora, Badami and Aihole.
The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) plans to introduce similar pilgrimage trains on routes that are part of Buddhist, Sikh, Christian and Chaar Dham circuits.
The two new inter-State trains are the Yeshwantpur-Jodhpur Express and the Yeshwantpur-Katra Express, which will start operating on December 4 and December 11 respectively, and will go through Bangalore City Station.
The Railways will also start four new suburban trains from November 1. They will begin operating from Bangalore to Hubli, Bangalore to Tumkur, Bangalore to Chamarajanagar and Bangalore (Yeshwantpur) – Hosur on Rajyotsava.
He said the aim of introducing local trains from the city to surrounding areas was to decongest the city. They would operate at peak time and benefit regular commuters on those routes, including daily-wage earners such as vegetable sellers. He added that while the four trains would be inaugurated on November 1, plans are on to run trains from Bangalore to Ramanagara and Chickballapur.
The Railways is working towards introducing information technology in the operation of Railways in various ways. This includes enabling passengers to ‘trace trains’ on their mobile phones, wake-up calls on mobile phones and introduction of train services to various cities with pilgrim spots.
While 13,000 coaches have already been fixed with biotoilets, Mr. Gowda said the cleanliness of Railway property could be effective only if people took ownership for it.
He stoutly denied the charge made against him that there was a difference in the declaration of assets made by him before and after the elections.
Mr. Gowda inaugurated Wifi connectivity in Bangalore City Railway Station at the same event.

With only five days left for Chhath Puja, a Hindu festival, thousands of devotees thronged the New Delhi Railway Station today to catch the Bihar bound trains.

and is one of Bihar's most popular festivals.
As people packed themselves into train coaches with some even squatting inside the bathrooms, many of them said they were travelling without tickets.
"We don't have confirmed tickets, but we have to leave today," said a passenger.
Another said, "My family is inside the train and there is no way I can go through this crowd and join them. I can't even reach them on the phone."
The policemen present at the platforms helped manage the crowd, but they could not do more as they are not authorised to stop passengers from entering the train.
Meanwhile authorities admitted that the 35 special trains started for this festival are not enough.
"There is a huge gap between demand and supply. We are running 35 special trains from Delhi to Patna...admit this is not enough to manage festival rush," said Anurag Sachan, New Delhi's Divisional Railway Manager.
"Normally we sell 35,000 unreserved tickets, but yesterday we sold 60,000...I would like to appeal to people to maintain law and order," he added.
