Spotted ICF Duronto coaches outside Secunderabad. They clearly belonged to SCR as mentioned on it. Saw about 5 coaches from 12728 soon after departure from SC on May 27.
So this makes it clear that VSKP-SC Duronto will be ICF. The AC II tier coaches had tiny windows. So these are probably Overhauled Rajdhani coaches.

These coaches may run at speeds of 130 kmph.. The vibration, however.. would be intense. There would be no comfort. Take an example of the coaches of VSKP Swarnjayanti express. I've traveled in the AC II tier from VSKP-AGC. The coaches are really old and they would start vibrating as soon as the train reached speeds of around 100 kmph. A duronto with an average speed of 72-74 and a 15-20 minute halt at BZA will have to run at over 100 kmph for most of the time. This would mean vibration all throughout the journey. And because its a CBC rake, the jerks are too common.

I too traveled by that AC2. I agree on that, but if we wont get then we cannot do any thing. But sure people prefer this duranto than Volvo bused which takes bumpy roads of Khammam. Also lets hope that by next year end it gets LHB.

Anirudh...As per railways plans all train will get LHB in another 5 years. First they will convert all RAJ's, Shatabdi, then Duranto, AC express...So it will get LHB in a year or two. So lets wait for the day.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
