The train can be easily seeded up by at list 3 hrs in Madgaon to NZM section, 12884 takes 28 hrs 40 mins, while 12883 takes 31 hrs 35 mins in return direction, the train can save more than 2 hrs on just Mao to PNVL, where it takes 10 hrs 10 mins against 7 hrs 18 mins by Janashtabdi.

Yes I agree with you friend.
I travelled by this Duronto last week and i found this to be a slowest duronto or in other words we can say this train is ruining the name of duronto express.
(1) This train is scheduled to take 2 hours to reach BSR from PNVL which is very surprising. My train departed from PNVL at 11pm and arrive near Diva Jn at 11:30pm and it was halted there for about 20 minutes. Between Kopar and Bhiwandi road, speed was ok and after Bhiwandi, it started crawling
and stopped at Kaman Road for about 15 to 20 minutes. In this way it reached BSR at 00:15 hours taking 2 hours from PNVL.
(2) Train departed from BSR at 00:30hrs and run at good speed upto Valsad. After Valsad, at Amlsad, 22903 BHUJ AC S F EXP overtook this train. I was surprised to see that some AC express is overtaking Duronto express.
(3) At 04:15am, it skipped Surat after halting for about 10 minutes at outer signal of Surat. It would have better if it halted at Surat stn instead of at outer signal.
(4) It reached BRC at 06:00 am, 40 minutes behind its schedule. Departed from BRC at 06:20am.
(5) Between BRC and RTM, speed was ok like other superfast train and it reached RTM at 09:40am. At RTM, it overtook Avadh express (which is not a big deal). I have taken a video also which i will soon post on youtube.
(6) Between RTM and KOTA, speed was again ok like other superfast train. There was no water in washroom in this train since morning as no one filled the water at BRC. I tweeted the same to indiarailmin. It worked and water was filled at KOTA. This means that indiarailmin tweeter handle really work. You just need to provide your complain with your PNR number.
(7) Between KOTA and MTJ, speed was awesome and this train was running like a duronto express. It skipped Sawai Madhopur, Bayana, Bharatpur at really good speed and reach MTJ at 16:30hrs before time.
(8) It left MTJ at 16:50hrs and reached NZM at 19:15hrs (before time) halting at Okhla, Faridabad, Tughlakabad. It can reach NZM easily at 18:00hrs or 18:30hrs but again I dont understand the logic of railway authority. I believe they dont want this train to overtake Golden Temple mail.

Dear Friends,
Need your advise on the below queries:
(1) Can anyone confirm whether 12283 ERN - NZM Duronto express halts at Vasai Road. If it halts, for how much time? Has anyone boarded this train from BSR in past?
(2) Is it ok to board this train from BSR? I have booked the ticket from Panvel to NZM as we cannot book the
tkt from BSR.
I stay close to BSR so it will easy for me to board this train from BSR instead of going to PNVL.
Your quick response will be appreciated.

Yes friend. I agree with you as Panvel comes under CR so there is a possibility that CR TTE check the ticket who has the boarding point from Panvel and completes his duty.
I am also surprised to see that this train (inspite of being duronto) taking two hours to reach BSR from PNVL while other mail/exp trains are taking 60 to 75 minutes which is why I am concerned bcoz in 2 hours TTE can easily check 6 to 7 coaches.

CR/KR TC boards from MAO. Now i am not sure confirm where he alights - at PNVL or BSR. This thing i don't know. If he alights at PNVL , then there no problem. But if he alights at BSR itself , then there are chance he may go for PNVL boarding tickets.
And this train takes 2 hrs due to Slack given for Zonal transfer. It is made to arrive BSR (WR) on time , so that they could maintain its punctuality.

It appears that after ADI Duronto crosses BSR, they give clearance to this train but its not good. On Wednesday, there is no duronto departing from BCT (i.e. NDLS, JP and INDB) so they can make this train run on the same time other duronto departing from BCT (i.e. NDLS, JP and INDB) runs but I dont understand the logic of railway authorities.

Hello Friends,
Thanks for your valuable suggestions.
I travelled by this train to NZM last week. In order to avoid any risk, I went to Panvel and boarded the train.
I had the discussion with TTE and he told me that he dont have any problem if i had boarded the train from BSR. He told me that they wait till BSR and then
clears the RAC.
Also, he confused me by saying that some TTE dont wait till BSR, they clear the RAC bcoz this train takes 2 hours from PNVL to reach BSR. So my suggestion is to board this train from PNVL only if anyone of you book the train from PNVL.
CR staff gets down at PNVL and WR staff board the train from PNVL. Only loco pilot and guard changes at BSR which is very strange.
