As i asked a question, few days back....I myself fetched the answe in comparison between SDAH Duronto & SDAH Raj.
I traveled by Duronto on 5/8/13, & I say that it is a wonderful train. Food, hospitality, timing (reached 15 min earlier), cleanliness all are extra-ordinary. I came back by Howrah Raj (via Patna) today....& I must say that it is a nice train though the cleanliness is not good. Fare of Duronto is much less.
So, Duronto is a good & thoughtful choice.

Who told DRNTO Fare been less?? Its just the schedule made deletion of some cuisine in menu, leading to reduced fare & further, via PNBE is longer route & hence higher fare for the same!!

Is Sealdah duronto bad for travelling because when the tickets in Howrah Raj & Sealdah Raj is running RAC, Sealdah Duronto having more than 100 tickets available. Just for example , see the seat availability in 05/08/13.
Anyone to explain!

In my opinion, better opt for HWH Raj. Second priority should be SDAH Drnt and followed by SDAH Raj. I gave this judgement based on over all comfort, cleanliness and food quality. HWH Raj is top most priority because it always runs on time. In SDAH Raj, we received couple of complaints regarding poor food quality and cleanliness. SDAH Drnt started maintaining its timeline after change in its TT.

Thats because of no intermediate halts.
I hv seen more of the common man of Kolkata travelling in duronto.... than in Rajdhani . never mind if few seats r adds to the comfort of the passengers by luck.
So, less filled duronto is surely more comfort giving than packed rajdhanis.

I always prefer HWH Rajdhani and SDAH Duronto.. Infact I've booked a return tkt in SDAH Duronto on 26th Aug.. Just coz of timings.. Never ever travelled in sdah rajdhani n don't even have any plan for future :P
Hwh Raj is the numero uno n Sdah Duronto is the 2nd best (for me) ;)
Sdah Duronto has the best food the fish chop is the ultimate one :)

Go with Rajdhani as it has better chances of reaching on time as compared to Duranto which runs late most of the times..
