    Will you please clarify if Duranto Express travels starts at Mumbai CST or Mumbai Central. I suppose it should be Mumbai CST. If it is Mumbai CST, please do not mislead the travellers. Could you rectify the mistake?

    I traveled by via Duranto from Howrah to Pune I found pleasure in traveling,so fun to travel in railway never so easy in this rout,main advantage is not to take any bedding,food etc.more over no body disturbing during station to station for any seat or any begger stepping through, rather I will suggest the Hon Rly Minst. Mamta Didi to run a seperate same type of train full of three tyre sleeper non stop train like Duronto.

  • Prasenjit Maitra

    I am planning to avail Duronto from Howrah to Mumbai with my family. My son is 3 years old. Because of that Indian Railway is not allowing tickets for him. As they have the pantry car, can anyone please tell me, whether they serve food for the kids in the train if we order separately for that? Are they taking special order for kids and prepare there?
