Today (17:11)   12274/New Delhi - Howrah Duronto Express | NDLS/New Delhi (16 PFs)

Started rt from ndls at 12:55. Accumulated a 70 mins delay upto cnb.The first rajdhani 12454 arrived 130 mins after departure of 12274 but still the whole gang of rajdhani manages to ot in ald-mgs section. It shows that
1) Priority of the train has degraded to that of a normal sf.
2) Lack of ER interest in asking the other zone to run this duronto with a little bit of priority
3)
...
more...
Getting looped in a section for such a long time in the already super congested section.
4) Passengers are being made the real fool by railways by travelling in this train by paying surge price.
5) Duronto are also rajdhani type train. So they should get their share of priority

This is the answer to all those who think that it's homezone doesn't run it on priority..
Brutally slammed PNBE-KCA at 91 kmph..200 kms in 2 hr 12 mins in DNR Division..
And this is quite common run..
Waiting for 130 MPS in PNBE-MGS section..And then it's average will be > 100 kmph

Kahe la Duronto. Surge fare costlier than both Rajdhanis. Costliest infact and taking 8.5 hours to cover Cnb-Ndls. Hwh passengers hoping to reach early arriving 2 hours after Hwh Rajdhani

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
...
more...
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

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.

The impossible has happened. Finally controllers realized that Duronto is Rajdhani category and should be allowed to ot 110 MPS SF. Well done controllers Finally an OT that has some logic attached to it.
