This trains runs between Rajendra Nagar, Patna which is just half a kilometer from my residence, to New Jalpaiguri 3 days and to Kamakhya 4 days. So getting reservation is easiest in this route. Though the train is not a super fast one and take lots of time but that is advantageous also. After Siliguri this trains passes through dense forest and three wild life sanctuaries. Its speed through out from Siliguri to till kamakhya is only 30. 00 km /hour. We traveled in AC-3. Though this train does not have pantry car which should be, but I am fully satisfies with ongoing on board cleaning of train coaches.
The entire route of this train from Siliguri onward is lush green field, fresh air and smell of fresh tea means full to joy and lots of freshness. It is lovely watching out. At times you will feel like that you are running through the lush tea gardens, flora and fauna lets you rejuvenate with full of energy. You can see either tea gardens both side of the train route or dense forest.
You may came across with animal like elephant, bison, wild boar, peacock etc. From train itself. Overall it was lovely journey and I had traveled a lot and this train is one of my favourite one.
