Duronto to run daily from Nagpur to Mumbai from end of June 2012

Duronto which used to run thrice a week will be converted into a daily train. It is good news for Nagpurians as there was always a long waiting list in trains like sevagram and Vidarbha. Many people adopted other means of conveyance in the absence of confirmed ticket in trains.

Nagpur will soon be a clean train station where standardized methods will be used for cleaning trains. Water coolers have been installed at the railway stations which has been donated by NGO’s. It will be maintained by Railways.

Decision to run Duronto daily will sure bring smiles to all Nagpurians.
