The city’s first Duronto train,a non-stop service connecting metros or major state capitals,will start running between Mumbai and Nagpur soon.

Another Duronto bi-weekly train between Howrah and Mumbai was to start before the Mumbai-Nagpur Duronto,but unavailability of air conditioned coaches has led to a delay,according to railway sources.

In the 2009-10 Budget,the railway ministry had announced the introduction of 12 Duronto trains — a venture for the first time in the history of the Indian Railways.

Though the date of inauguration has not been announced yet,it is believed that the train from CST will roll out on August 15.
