Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday announced a new Duronto Express train between the metropolis and the seaside resort of Digha at the southern tip of West Bengal. "The fully air-conditioned train will take only about two hours to reach Digha and will be a boon to both tourists and the tourism industry at Digha," the minister said while inaugurating an express train to Digha from the industrial township of Asansol.

Duronto is a new concept in rapid passenger movement which came 41 years after the Rajdhani Express revolutionised train services between Delhi and major cities, she said adding the new multi-colour trains between metros were faster than the red and yellow locomotives.
