I had traveled three times in SDAH NDLS Duronto in June 2010, Sept 2011 and July 2014.
All the journeys of mine had been a "indelible one" in all respect.
The notable positive sides of this train are:
1 Awesome food(both dinner& breakfast) ,praiseworthy punctuality and humble behavior of the "Catering Staff" with respect to serving the food and dealings with
...

the commuters .
2 Compartments are clean and well maintained by the rail staff of Narkeldanga carshed SDAH
3 Good service of the sweepers on board regarding the maintenance of cleanliness of the lavatories.
4 Clean bedsheets & linens provided to passengers
5 Cooperative & amicable behaviour of on board TTEs regarding allotment of berths to RAC/Waitlisted passengers
6 Nice speed and punctuality maintained all over the journey.
To conclude this is one of the best train I think from Kolkata to NDLS route even better than Rajdhani.(From the viewpoint of Fare & other amenities).
I also traveled in Rajdhani in the year 2011,2012 but the amenities are not upto the mark and in fact of poor standard when compared to SDAH Duronto.

Attached Pics:
A. 12260 DN SDAH Duronto at Dhanbad Jn
B. Dinner of 12259 UP NDLS Duronto
C. Loco in Charge of 12260 DN SDAH Duronto HWH WAP7 30329 standing at PF 9C of SDAH
D EOG Van of SDAH NDLS Duronto standing at PF 9 of NDLS
E "Duronto liveried WAP 7" takes the honorable charge of 12259 SDAH NDLS Duronto
I also request the rail fans to make this train as "First Preference" whenever they wish to travel to NDLS from Kolkata.
In a nutshell:
SDAH Duronto is a
1 Nice train
2 First Duronto of IR and
3 Many nostalgic ideals are associated with this train
so my only request is to
"Change it's Loco Link to WAP7 permanently and reinstate the glory of this marvelous service of IR literally and if possible make it a "DAILY SERVICE" like 12267/12268 Mumbai Ahmedabad Duronto".
Request to all users and railfans:
Please give your valuable opinion regarding this "train tip" posted by me.

It is not uncommon to me
As per your opinion 'Loco Pilots of SER are jealous of Loco Pilots of HWH because they get the luxury of 3rd phase locos but SER pilots are tied with dirty old WaM and WaP's. I got to know that SRC is ready to serve 3 Phase locos but only when any one of those come at SRC. Now its only possible if HWH P7 is provided to Steel exp or BBN Janshatabdi etc."
So I inquire about the reason why HWH P4 not provided
...

to SRC that's it.
Definitely for any particular reason HWH P4 is not provided to SRC.
I want to know that very particular reason.

Heheh !! Why would a HWH P4 would go to SRC shed for any reason?? HWH ELS is still in function right?? If any train needs HWH P4 at SER side then loco can go directly from banmangachi ELS as they do currently !!

Should the Decision of IR of 3-Phase Link withdrawal from 12259/12260 is justified ?
Yes It's absolutely justified IR has taken the Correct Decision by giving the Charge of this Train to WAP-424%8
No IR has taken Completely wrong decision by withdrawing WAP-5/WAP-7 from this Train as 3-Phase Link was better than the Present Link with this Train65%22
Don't have any idea regarding this12%4

Could any body explain what happened? Is the 3-phase link[which was withdrawn] superior to the newly given link?

I dont think rlys action regarding links are justified/not. But when you start conversation with some LP or any other staff those who know about the link will give you an answer like, which ever loco is available we use it for xyz train(xyz can be any train and sometimes at HWH and NDLS I came to know about WAP-7's that they are specifically for the Rajdhanis and long hauler with lots of stoppages).
Coming to the voting topic, When Poorva was in ICF mode , it had 24 coaches and ICF coaches are heavier than LHB so why they didn't gave WAP-7 earlier as the way Kalka was provided.
If
...

WAP-7 are to provide hotel load to the LHB coaches then its fine, but again we cant find any of the HOG WAP-7 working with their HOG on. So it's my opinion rly has rights to assign link as per their choice and availability.
Now soppose if WAP-7 comes to SER, to which train they will provide the WAP-7, 12839/40/41/42 -Durontos-shatabdi's or to AC SF's(plenty of high patronage trains). They will provide WAP-7 to the train which really needs it, it's that simple.
So in the regions where WAP-7's aren't available , WAP-4's are doing awesome service. Hence it depends upon the section and ultimately to the controller for the punctuality.
Lastly - for WAP-7's ,group them up.
HOG WAP-7's - only for pure LHB/Rajdhani's
WAP-7 - For Heavy hauling (Trains with 24 coaches and lots of stoppages).
