Why is this such a slow train? It takes 6hrs more than Trivandrum rajdhani (ERN-NZM). It's average speed is 66 kmph, whereas Trivandrum rajdhani's is 80 kmph. What is the point in putting duronto in the category of rajdhanis

If you find any significance of doing that, you can do that.

Trains travel so fast as the tracks have been laid in such a way. The trains are capable of running at high speeds in Konkan. E.g. I have myself traveled in CSTM-MAO Jan Shatabdi and seen the speed. It was above 100 at most of the stretches. It had 2S coaches too and they were completely shaking throughout.

Re# 124168-27            Tags   Past Edits
Perfect. This is the best way to calculate the speed of the train. I used to do this for years from the age of 10. However after I started travelling by AC it became difficult if not impossible. Of course those days speeds were much lower max. 90 kmph. I would even predict the speeds by hearing the rattling sound of the moving train on wooden sleepers (now replaced by concrete sleepers) and crosscheck my guesstimate by the method you have explained. Percentage error was around 10%. Good timepass. Still do it when I travel by 2nd class or sleeper and occupy a window seat.
