Kolkata, Nov.27, 2015 :
12847/12848 Howrah-Digha-Howrah Duronto Express will be renamed as Howrah-Digha-Howrah Super AC Express w.e.f 01.12.2015. This pair of train will have commercial stoppages at Mecheda, Tamluk and Kanthi enroute in both the directions as per following schedule:-
·Timings of the train at originating and destination stations will remain unaltered.
Physically, it will be a Shatabdi(fare structure will be as per Shatabdi, hopefully catering charge will be included in the fare. Rake composition will also remain like a Shatabdi) but it will be a Super AC only logically. I am free to say here, I have no idea about the specification of so called 'Super AC'. What is the definition of 'Super AC' train?
Seriously IR, why not just name it a Shatabdi, puts us all Railfans into a frenzy as to what this new concept of "Super AC" is.
