Video taken by me (@IndianTrainFan on Twitter) of Yeshwantpur - Howrah Duronto Express departing from Yeshwantpur Jn. You can hear that my Parents were correct regarding our train's direction and I had thought the other way but I was proved wrong.

TRIP REPORT of my Journey Experience on 12246 Yeshwantpur (Bangalore) - Howrah Duronto Express via Renigunta - Vijaywada - Bhubaneswar :-
.
My experiences of traveling by 12246 YPR - HWH Duru Baby Exp was quite good. My Parents and I enjoyed traveling by this train very much. It was a secure, clean & punctual train (up to Bhubaneswar and reached HWH 1.5 Hours late). There was no security personnel throughout the train journey as the catering staff was very strict enough not to allow any unreserved passengers/Non - IRCTC Hawkers within our

train. Mr. Jena, the Main Catering Attendant in our coach was very courteous along with his bright staff. The In House coach washer men asked for tips in the end of the journey but we told them that Mr. Jena had been awarded the tip on the staff's behalf so no more tips. It was awesome to see that our train reached at it's first tech halt Renigunta, where I saw a Tirupati bound train from MAS Side. In the evening and late night, our train skipped stations like Nellore at great speeds. The train was at it's MPS even the next morning while it thrashed stations like Naupada Jn, Palasa, Jhadupudi and Ichchapuram. It was too tough for me to stand near the occupied toilets near the main gates at such MPS. We were served breakfast after Nirakarpur in Odisha and I enjoyed it while watching the Sun-soaked Chilka Lake sidings. Later, our train reached at Bhubaneswar on time where we met the Dhanbad - Bhubaneswar Garib Rath Express. The skips on various bridges at MPS after Barang Jn were also too good. I even loved to see our train skipping stations like Cuttack Jn, Balasore and Kharagpur Jn at decent speeds. After KGP, our train struggled to reach Howrah since EMUs from Panskura Jn onwards started chasing us. They were given priority over our Duru baby and the slogging continued till Tikiapara Rail yard. I liked to witness the State Borders between Andhra Pradesh - Odisha and Odisha - West Bengal. Concrete sleepers are installed between the tracks at these points that display the Welcome Text. The staff was friendly as usual and told us to check all our belongings before we leave the train. It's a good train provided you do not have a connecting chain to any other West Bengal location from Howrah since it may get late.
Personally, I feel that this is a good Train to travel by between Bangalore (BENGALuru) & Howrah.
----------------
My marks for this train on the following parameters :-
------------
1) Security: 9/10 [Vigilant Coach Attendant(s) were seen at all times]
2) Food Catering: 8/10 [Minus 2 Marks for Dominance of Paneer in Veg Food]
3) Punctuality: 7/10 [ Delays due to slogging after Kharagpur but SRC WAP-4 was extremely powerful]
4) Speed Performance(MPS Behavior): 9/10 [Speed was perfect from train's side but some unscheduled halts spoiled the fun]
5) Cleanliness: 10/10 [Coach & Toilets were cleaned at all Technical Halts]

Thanks... it took me months to upload all my videos from my 12245 and 12246 Duronto Express journeys on IRI. I think that this is my last trip report on IRI since I am not sure of my future train journeys... my professional/personal life is going to be more hectic in the years to come... thanks a ton :-D

Daily many people travel from VSKP, VZM, CPP, CHE, GNPR, PLH, NWP, PSA, SPT, IPM, BAM to BBS/KUR/PURI/CTC to catch long distance trains going towards North India though there are many trains but an ICE starting from VSKP is missing so people have to depend on the weeklies (which is very difficult) in the morning or Train # 17016 Visakha Exp (This starts late and its slow). Similarly people coming from BBS have to depend on Train # 12703 Falaknuma SF exp which is already very crowded. So it would be better if an ICE starts @ 6:00 AM in VSKP.
VSKP : 6:00 (D)

Electrification has to be done between NWP and GNPR so that there can be EMU's to GNPR from BAM/PSA/VSKP . And also overnight Exp from BBS/PURI is very much needed.
