"Usual Indian Railways experience, satisfactory "

Train boarding time was at night around 10 or 11, as usual it was 2 hours late, but I choose this train as this is an overnight train hence I save time. Train didn't have a satisfactory toilet and I mostly ate from home-packed food or at stalls on different stations.

Good train route with very good sight seeing all around the journey. But the train is not so clean. Cockroaches and rats are all around the train. No pantry is available in the train. But the train is very very punctual in time. At all the journey is very good and remarkable.

We booked the ticket well in advance for A/C 3 tier. The coaches were clean and we reached Ranchi on time almost. The guard was helpful, the A/C was OK. The entire journey was done at night so was quite pleasant as it did not make us feel the tiring effect of the journey.

The train has to leave Howrah Station at 10 pm and we all friends were excited for our first outing without family as we were travelling for a friend’s marriage. Howrah Station has always been a very busy station and the best part is the passenger get a lot of time to settle. The train was in good condition and we just went inside our respective coach and after a small chat went to sleep in respective berths and early morning we were at Ranchi Junction shivering with cold.

Nothing more elaboration is needed when it is Rajdhani or Shatabdi. Clean bathroom, pushback seats, timely food, and what else do you need to travel for not so hectic route from Kolkata to Ranchi. It’s perfect for Ranchi Journey and the good thing is it never gets late.
