    I had a good experience in this duronto train. The train was neat and clean and food served was good. It was just like Rajdhani express food. Morning tea breakfast evening tea and dinner was served. There is no need to carry anything to eat in this train

    Recently I traveled in Sealdah ND Duronto on 30-01-2013 and ND Howrah Duronto on 02-02-2013, both in AC 1st class. There is a remarkable difference between them. ND Howrah is worst in all respect quality of food, the way it is served, the quantity,the cleanliness in the compartment and bathrooms, even the AC of the compartment was not cool enough in end January. Immediately after departure soup was served in a paper glass, lunch was served after one hour in unseal foil packets. On inquiry the attendants told that the porcelain plates and bowls will be used for dinner only which was done. Before sleeping when I went for toilet, I found that the plates and bowls are being washed in the passage by the side of toilet using same water and wiped in a towel before storing them in the steel trunk perhaps for the use of the passengers. Such is the treatment they extended to 1st AC passengers. My advice is avoid this train if you can.

    Is wifi available on this train like it is in Rajdhani exp?

  • Sudip Maitra

    No, wifi is not available on this train nor the Sealdah New Delhi Duronto Express.

  • Sudip Maitra

    No, wifi is not available on this train nor the Sealdah New Delhi Duronto Express. Besides the Rajdhani wifi connectivity is erratic and extremely pathetic. Its for namesake only and serves no real purpose.
