Highlights of a complete Journey from Hyderabad to Delhi | Part 1 is from Secunderabad to Nagpur
The first part of a complete journey from Secunderabad to H. Nizamuddin in the Duronto Express. Sporting H-LHB rakes, the Duronto gets shunted into pf1 of Secunderabad after the Sabari express departs. Departing a few mins late due to a chain pulling, the train picks up speed through Ghatkesar after a few initial hiccups. A Constant mps run is maintained till Kazipet, post which the train comes in its element and
puts away all stations at MPS of 120 kmph. Once Balharshah is reached, we are admitted into pf3 after some waiting at the Wardha bridge. Post the zonal change over, the run is maintained well up to Sewagram and further up to Ajni home. What could have been a huge before time entry into Nagpur is reduced to a 5mins BT crawl into pf1. Part 2 coming soon, stay tuned.

Again saying, what you are showing is true, nothing to deny the fact. But what I and other bloggers are saying is, to run a correct type of train at correct time. We need to consider which class of people are traveling in a given section. We are talking about people for whom, taking 230Rs GS ticket matters a lot. We are not asking to run Shatabdhi, Garibrath, Duronto, AC SF etc. we are talking about an intercity kind of connectivity for the sake of this section of people.
