This train has horrible punctuality. Let me recall the horrible experience I had to face when I chose this train to travel from BBS to HWH:
1. Before going to sleep at night, I got a message that my train is 25 mins late at Renigunta and is likely to make up. I however estimated that it will be delayed even more and woke up accordingly the next morning to find that the delay has increased to 2 hours. I departed my residence accordingly
2. Once I reached BBS station, I found
Why Would Someone Book This Train To HWH From BBS Since You Have Both Jan Shatabdi & Puri Shatabdi Available ?
Maybe timing was an issue, as both the trains you mentioned depart early morning. This train arrives at a decent time at around 10 o' clock.
During that time JS and Shatabdi was full. Since I was travelling with my father, 2S in JS was not an option. Hence availed this train
Yes timing is an issue. Also both were full at that time for some reason
My Horrible Experience With Dhauli /blog/post/2389977
Horrible experience indeed. But since that day I think Dhauli has improved. Travelled in it recently from BLS and I had a pleasant ride actually. I think your tweet had an action. Still, to travel to Puri, I always prefer Duronto due to punctuality and less stops. In it, I can enjoy a smooth ride unlike the other trains.
For Tourists Duronto Is A Bad Option,, Since It Reaches At Around 10:30pm. And You Pay For One Day Hotel Charges For Nothing
I am actually talking about Sealdah-Puri Duronto. It reaches Puri by about 4.15 am which in my opinion is a nice time to reach Puri.
Heard So...Never Traveled ....Traveled By Puri Howrah Duronto Way Back in 2012...That Was A Nightmare As Well Since Our Coach C-4 Caught Fire , Luckily There Was No Casualty
Lucky escape! The train you are talking about is HWH-Puri Shatabdi that was running with ICF rakes then. Now it has LHB rakes but I still think their service is a bit lacking. You should travel by Duronto once. It is pretty good, better than most of the trains on this route to be honest.
Yup. It Was A Shabby Dirty Duronto Coach..... Probably Now It Is Used As HWH-DGHA Duronto Exp....Coz In 2016 We Traveled By It From DGHA To HWH....For Puri We Prefer HWH-PURI Exp...Perfect Timing [ Only If You Are Lucky Enough To Get Confirmed Tickets]
Yes, PURI Express tickets go out quickly. Also, the old rake is finally not in use anymore as the HWH-Digha AC Express has been given new rakes. I also had nightmares when I was travelling in it with my family. Condition of the rake was very poor. Glad it is replaced now.
For Digha I Have Planned Something Else...Just For A New Experience.... I Will Travel By EMU Which Operates From SRC At 6:10 Hrs.... It Operates As SRC-MCA EMU.....And The Same Train Operates As MCA-DGHA EMU After A 10 Mins Halt At MCA.....Will Make This Trip Whenever I'm At Calcutta Next Time

গ্রুপে অনেকেই দীঘা যাওয়ার ট্রেনের ব্যাপারে জানতে চান। বেশিরভাগ যাত্রীর প্রথম পছন্দ হাওড়া থেকে সকাল 06.35এ ছাড়া তাম্রলিপ্ত এক্সপ্রেস। কারন হোটেলে চেক ইন্ টাইম সকাল 10টা। ট্রেনটা লেট না করলে সকাল দশটায় পৌঁছে যায়। এই ট্রেনে রিজার্ভ কোচ (AC Chair Car & 2nd Seating) এবং জেনারেল দুধরনের
Very useful info. I actually travelled once in the 6.05 EMU upto Kanthi. Really useful for someone who wants to travel with a small budget.
Even For Someone Who's Willing To Experience Something New
Yes, that is true. Although I believe that a fast passenger from SHM or SRC would be ideal for passengers who do not get a seat in Tamralipta or do not want to book in Super AC due to high fare.
We Have N Number Of AC & Non-AC Buses To Digha From Different Parts Of Kolkata & Suburbs.......
Yes but still, another train would not hurt. Will be good for people who live near to the stations of which the Digha trains do not stop.
Specially Mandarmani / Tajpur Bound Tourists....Since Duronto Doesn't Halt At Ramnagar
Yes, that is why I think one is needed. Still, for them EMU is a solid alternative.
