I believe a duronto service can be started between mumbai and bangalore via DD, SUR and GTL with a total journey time of roughly 19-20 hours. I believe this will get good patronage as it will take less time than other trains. I dont know whether a proposal for such a train already exists. What do you guys think about it?

Thnx for explaining the difference, as u said it can be an AC SF exp. What i meant to say in my original post was that a fast train can be introduced in this route, not neccesarily duronto, it can be AC exp as well

I strongly support for this but this bus mafia will never allow a Duronto to start in this route.

You are right. any fast train will get stuck in politics and will again end up being a slow train taking 24 hrs+. I hope that does not happen

I agree with points 1 and 34 as there is only 1 direct train to mysore from delhi that too once a week and it is quite packed and I think trains between udaipur and jaisalmer would help the tourist population quite a bit.
