I've an upcoming travel (along with wife) in which I'll have a changeover of trains at Ratlam in middle of night with possible layover between 2-6 hours (depending on which train I get a confirmed ticket in). Since this waiting time is in middle of night, can someone familiar with this station please advise what option I might have on the station in terms of spending the few night hours. Is there a Waiting Room available? And if yes, is it decent enough to take some rest in night, and if generally space can be found in middle of night hours?
Any tip/advise would be appreciated.
TIA!

Searching online for more info, I found from click here that there is indeed a Waiting Room. However since this is a bit dated post, I searched more and came across click here (slide# 61) that gives the idea that indeed decent enough Waiting Room is available at RTM. If anybody can share any more recent info, it would be great!

Your response was truly helpful. Subsequently I tried again at IRCTC. Now the train shows up in the list of train, but when click on class name link to start reservation process, I am getting the following error:
Error
BOOKINGs are NOT ALLOWED at this TIME
Guess the CR is still not have proper info in its database :(

To the best of my knowledge, all technical halts of Duronto are converted to commercial halts from 1st of Jan. However when checking for 12222 to book from Tata (presently a tech halt) to Pune for 2nd of Jan, I don't see this train. Is this Duronto not part of this halt type change scheme w.e.f. 1st Jan?

The best of ur knowledge isnt phased out for booking @ this train dated 2 Jan bt 14 Jan is the opening day!!
Operational feasibility would hav lead to make opening day different for various DRNTO while the first phase may start @ 1 Jan (as per ur knowledge)!!
HWH CSTM DRNTO Technical Stop Commercialization starts @ 11 Jan!!

I want to board this HWH-PUNE Duronto from Tatanager, which is shown as a technical halt in the timetable. Ofcourse the ticket will be booked from HWH-PUNE. Therefore the question is: Is it possible to change the boarding point on a Duronto to an intermediate technical halt station (TATA in this case)? If it's possible, how to get this done?

Re# 1204310-1            Tags   Past Edits
You cannot board Duronto at any technical halt. Only deboarding is allowed. Since the ticket is booked end to end, there is no provision in system to change boarding point. TTE would allot your confirmed berth to RAC passenger if he finds you missing at HWH.

No this is not possible. You have to board this train from HWH itself.

Any recent experiences with the catering on this Pune-Hwh Duronto? Is the quality good? What about hygiene? More importantly are they still serving the same menu items for both dinner and next days lunch?

Instead of saying that stops are being introduced for Duronto's, Rly should convert their classification into Rajdhani and rename them accordingly.
