I had traveled three times in SDAH NDLS Duronto in June 2010, Sept 2011 and July 2014.
All the journeys of mine had been a "indelible one" in all respect.
The notable positive sides of this train are:
1 Awesome food(both dinner& breakfast) ,praiseworthy punctuality and humble behavior of the "Catering Staff" with respect to serving the food and dealings with
...

the commuters .
2 Compartments are clean and well maintained by the rail staff of Narkeldanga carshed SDAH
3 Good service of the sweepers on board regarding the maintenance of cleanliness of the lavatories.
4 Clean bedsheets & linens provided to passengers
5 Cooperative & amicable behaviour of on board TTEs regarding allotment of berths to RAC/Waitlisted passengers
6 Nice speed and punctuality maintained all over the journey.
To conclude this is one of the best train I think from Kolkata to NDLS route even better than Rajdhani.(From the viewpoint of Fare & other amenities).
I also traveled in Rajdhani in the year 2011,2012 but the amenities are not upto the mark and in fact of poor standard when compared to SDAH Duronto.

C. Loco in Charge of 12260 DN SDAH Duronto HWH WAP7 30329 standing at PF 9C of SDAH
D EOG Van of SDAH NDLS Duronto standing at PF 9 of NDLS
E "Duronto liveried WAP 7" takes the honorable charge of 12259 SDAH NDLS Duronto
I also request the rail fans to make this train as "First Preference" whenever they wish to travel to NDLS from Kolkata.
In a nutshell:
SDAH Duronto is a
1 Nice train
2 First Duronto of IR and
3 Many nostalgic ideals are associated with this train
so my only request is to
"Change it's Loco Link to WAP7 permanently and reinstate the glory of this marvelous service of IR literally and if possible make it a "DAILY SERVICE" like 12267/12268 Mumbai Ahmedabad Duronto".
Request to all users and railfans:
Please give your valuable opinion regarding this "train tip" posted by me.

    @all: This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless. We are unable to support RailCal anymore. Sorry to disappoint our users. . RailCal has already been taken off the Google PlayStore. So once...

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

Just Copy/Paste a small piece of text into your browser bookmarks. The bookmarklet will be available by morning. . 2. When you click on Post/Update/Refresh PNR, you will be taken to the Official...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

    Starting Monday, we shall be starting the slow Test rollout of our new app - called RailFan. . What is RailFan? It is expected that RailFan will be the future of the IRI site for mobile phones. A full dedicated offline-capable messaging/blogging app, encompassing all the features of the IRI site. The RailFan app...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
