So the conclusion is following:-
(1) You should keep a big bottle of ice cool water with you as the water-bottle provided to you will soon become lava.
(2) Early Overtake of Gomti and Mahabodhi is required to escape some extra delay.
(3) Morning trains' traffic near MGS will affect the Performance of HD.
Food is nice, no special need of carrying anything.

There is and idiom "Example is better than precept".
Please see the attached TT of both Durontos in the last one month(From Feb 17 2015 to March 17 2015 & Feb 16 2015 to March 17 2015)
1 BCT NDLS Duronto --------- Usually hauled by WAP 5 offlink WAP 7 rarely seen with WAP 4/WAP 4E
2 SDAH NDLS Duronto------------ Permanently hauled by HWH
WAP 4 since the year 2013(Prior to 2013 hauled by GZB WAP 5 and GZB/HWH WAP 7)
I think everybody can now get the answer that which Duronto is better in the area of "PUNCTUALITY".
Attached TT of past One month
1 BCT NDLS Duronto
2 SDAH NDLS Duronto

speed is not only the factor........
The Grand Chord is the most conjested route of the Indian Railways. The Bengal Rajdhanis and all the trains to New Delhi from Bengal travel via Grand Chord passing Mughalsarai, allahabad, kanpur, ndls.
just see the howrah rajdhani.......this mighty train too which was started in 1969 is very punctual.
you just can't predict the punctuality of trains
running through the Grand Chord on the Northern Plains.

Howrah Rajdhani started on 3 March 1969 not in 1959.
See this link: click here
Yes. I know. But when 12259/12260 Duronto was a "Biweekly Duronto"(In 2009 to 2012) then it was regularly hauled by WAP-7/WAP-5 at that time I personally travelled 3 times in this same train(2009,2010,2011) and at that time this same Duronto maintained a "Very Particular Timings". All were same at that time also dear. At that time also Grand Chord was conjested with many trains but this train was hardly seen making "Inordinate Delay".
2013 "Delay" becomes a "Part and Parcel" of this train. It is not my personal opinion. Passengers traveled in this train told this. If past records are there in this site you may go through those records.
