Can our friends in IndiaMike help me on the followings:

1. Does AC I Class in How-Puri/Puri-How Duronto Express have birth to sleep on like other AC I Classes? I ask this question because this particular Duronto is a day train and it does not involve any overnight journey.

2. Does this train provide Lunch/or Dinner during its journey to and from Howrah to Puri and vice versa ?

3. Punctuality-wise how is the performance of this particular train?

Thanks & regards

hi,
Howrah puri duronto is more like shatabdi trains where you have no sleepers in all classes.. it definitely provides food... punctuality is dependent on situation unless trouble is there in the route duronto trains run on time

Welcome.
BBS Rajdhani is also no good.
Better travel to Kolkata and take the Sealdah Rajdhani or Sealdah Duronto.

Travelled by BBSR-NDLS Duranto. Started off from bbsr on time. Interiors are new and clean. By the time, it reached NDLS, bathroom became very dirty. Food served in Ac was very bad. At least in comparision to Rajdhani. Don't know if they serve food in Non-ac. Train arrived late by 4 hours in NDLS. Chatted with few regular travellers, and they said usually this train runs late.

Returned by BBSR Rajdhani. Was on time through out. Running time of 24 hrs is too much, can be optimised to 21hrs, and its possible. Food served from delhi was bad, but sourced from tatanagar was good. Service was good. although bathroom was dirty through out, no one even cleaned it. some switches were not working, need urgent upkeep.

The cabin has several power outlets. The coup may have just one. Oops, I misread your question. My comments were for 1AC. I haven't an answer for the side berths but imagine they would.
