Duronto trains are point to point, non stop trains running between major cities. They are usually considered to be the fastest trins. These trains have no commercial stops. The 16-coach train comprises one AC-1, three AC-II, four AC-III and five AC-III (economy) coaches.The fares are usually higher than the other trains.
