I traveled by duronto express from chennai to delhi and delhi chennai. It was a nice experience to travel non stop.
There were a few problems with the train.
1. The toilets: They suck. After a few hours of travel, water collects on the floor, making it very difficult to enter or leave the toilet without messing up your dress. The latches dont work in many toilets. The commodes overflow. The toilets are filthy within a few hours.
Food served is bad to horrible. Food is charged for in the ticket and could be much nicer.
3. Electricity outlet, though provided near the switches for fans/lights don't work in most compartments. So one can forget charging phones.

Guess, most long distance trains have this problem.I know this shouldn't be the case seeing the awareness programs driven by Railways on the Hygeine factor. Atleast the authorities should pay attention to all these specific long distance trains where the passengers suffer a great deal in comparison to the short distance trains.
Unfortunate is what I can term your experience in Chennai-NDLS Duronto and I don't see things change in the near future also.

Do LHB Coaches have such problems in the toilets?

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . 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. Also,...
