12259/12260 Sealdah New Delhi Duronto Express is used to arrive late at the destination. It becomes a very common feature if anyone observe the last one month's arrival history.
My question is ... railway is taking fare just like Rajdhani Express but why this train is having so bad arrival history whereas all Kolkata bound Rajdhanis are arriving almost in time ?
Railway authorities are not considering this train as good as Rajdhani but taking same fare.
is highly objectionable.
Corrective measure /action should be taken immediately.

The same is the case with HWH and BBS Duronto as well, my friend. I saw NCR's DRM twitter handle saying that 12260 SDAH Duronto gets delayed due to suburban traffic. Yes, even i was unable to understand what he wrote. Many times Railfans from West Bengal have questioned and complained on twitter. All we can expect is that Railways is keeping this on mind and will make amendments in time table for the same.

today 12259 sdah-ndls Duronto Exp. reached at New Delhi more than 5hrs late. can authority explain the reason ? I have to travel on the same route on 6th Oct 2014 from Sealdah/kolkata and have to catch flight on 7th Oct 2014 at 15hrs from New Delhi airport. I am scared of thinking that if this type of delay happens that day, I will miss the flight and my vacation programme in the coming festive season will be smashed.THE HISTORY IF THE DURONTO TELLS THAT THE TRAIN RUNS USUALLY LATE BY MORE THAN 47 MTS., SOMETIMES IT REACHES UPTO 2HRS AND MORE. DURONTO EXP BEING AT PAR WITH RAJDHANI EXP ( AT LEAST IN FARE), SHOULD BE MONITORED LIKE RAJDHANI EXP ALSO. RAIL AUTHORITY MUST LOOK IN TO THE MATTER WITH A SERIOUS NOTE.

yes, you are right mr. kumar, but i could not manage to get tickets in rajdhani on that day due to very heavy rush. but you see, as the ir is charging same fare in duronto like rajdhani, the service should be same also.

This is bitter truth as I too observe on NTES, both Howrah Duronto and Sealdah Duronto are late 70 percent of times..
N delay exceeds more than 30 minutes..

As per reports, the delay was due to the failure of WAP-4.

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

    -@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.
