Recently took 12274 Duronto for Howrah. In Sleeper class during summer season, the main problem which most of the passengers faced was water bottles getting warm due to hot air blowing outside. Added to this, there were no arrangements of cold water in pantry car. It was also very difficult to get cold water in Kanpur station because many shops did not have cold/chilled water 7 train stops there for 5 minutes only. Finally, the cold water was available at Mughalsarai. Hence, to all the passengers who wish to take Howrah Duronto during summer season, I have following suggestions:
1. Preferably, take AC class.
For SL class, make arrangements of chilled water at NDLS itself. The non-stop service of train and extreme heat in UP will create problems.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
