Yes Sir, Quality of food is very Nice & Homely in Sealdah Rajdhani, thanks for posting your experiance.

I will prefer the fastest train in the route, whether it is duranto, rajdhani, garib rath, ac express.
If all these trains takes same time to reach destination in desired route, I will prefer duranto only.

@Aatish Pandya: Re# 159310-0
Thanks Friends for attending this Quiz. It was very exciting to present it and also glad to know the response from all!
I think 7 days are too long! so, here are the answers -

5.a) (some Durontos and All Garib Raths don't have PC)
17. - "d" was the actual answer since I didn't thought that a toy-train can be of type "Rajdhani" which was correctly pointed out by Manish that Shivalik Express is a non-stop, point-to-point train and comes under Rajdhani category (Thanks Mainsh!). So, you may write "a" and "d" - both are correct!
That's All Friends! See u later with some other Rail Fundas!
