Hi Guys!

Since a few years I've been thinking of doing the Konkan/ Kerala sector by train and next month I have a chance from Delhi... I've come across some comments on the Duronto/ Rajdhani, but from awhile ago. Hoping that things may have changed for the better since then..

I intend to travel 1AC. My queries are as follows:

1. Which is a better train from a coach/ rake/ quality of ride perspective?
2. Which is a better train from quality of service perspective
3. Normally do these trains keep their time?? How much safety margin should I leave if I were to make further travel arrangements (lets say - catch another train from Ernakulam to somewhere?)

Thanks in advance!

The Rajdhani is the better train among the both and scores on all parameters you mentioned. However Rajdhani reaches Ernakulam at midnight while Duranto reaches daytime. Still I'd go for Rajdhani. (Word of caution : The pantry and bed roll staff of Rajdhani will bother you asking for tips which you need not have to give.)
