"Marvelous performance of Indian railways !"

5.0/5

Posted 9 April, 2016

Oh, what a beautiful experience! No disturbance of hawkers, beggars, and above all, unauthorized passengers. Neat & clean compartments and toilets. The train was running before time. We slept peacefully, without thinking of the security of our life and luggage. The IRCTC staff, attendant were very courteous. The food given in the train were superb, services were beyond any question. Thank you, Indian Rail, once again. Keep it up, and please try to give us the same experience, especially the security and Hawker-Beggar-Bag-lifter and Unauthorized passengers free Journey in all other trains.

"The Kolkata Rajdhani - The star of Eastern Railway"

4.3/5

Posted 17 March, 2016

The Kolkata Rajdhani is the undisputed king of the ER and probably second only to the Bombay Central - New Delhi Rajdhani in terms of reputation. I have travelled many times on this route and on this train. The service and train timings are usually impeccable. You are served evening snacks and tea upon boarding. Soup and breadsticks are served after Dhanbad/Parasnath followed by dinner and ice cream. Morning involves bed tea and a good wholesome breakfast followed by an optional serving of tea. The train usually maintain impeccable timing, reaching New Delhi by 10AM. If delayed, it is usually the Mughalsarai-Allahabad stretch that is to blame. Overall, I recommend this again and again.

"Delayed Rajdhani due to weather"

4.3/5

Posted 1 February, 2016

We travelled towards Jasidih (nearest station) from NDLS and due to fog in between the journey and late departure delayed the train for 6 hours. Though the travel duration increased but since it was rajdhani we got all meals without any issue. Cherry on the cake is that you have got wifi on train. I have not seen wifi on Swiss trains but the facility is on Indian rail, which is amazing :)

"A scenic route"

4.3/5

Posted 14 October, 2015

When you do not get Tatkal tickets you get Premium Tatkal tickets. I got the same a day before travelling. Thankfully I got. The journey was good. Same food. Similar to Duronto. 12301 Rajdhani is via Gaya. A scenic route. The train leaves at 4.55pm from Howrah and next day at 10am you are in NDLS. Though this was around 30 minutes late. This was January, 2015. Remember all North India bound trains suffer along this time due to heavy fog. I was lucky that way. :)

"No delay in the train timings but must work on toilet area"

3.6/5

Posted 29 October, 2014

Food is not upto the mark. In the morning toilet looked dirty, near bathroom premises need to be more clean. Train was running on time. Security is good. Reception is good but tea is not good. Accommodation is good and WiFi does not work. Overall it is a good experience.

Good but food was not nice. Food quality should be improved. Train security is weak. Toilets are not clean and accommodation class is good.

"Good to see that even the foreigners had taken a liking for the train"

4.3/5

Posted 28 October, 2013

It was clean and was also comfortable. The train was on time. We were lucky enough as our co-passengers were nice. The train staff were good. They provided us with clean and washed bedsheets. The pantry car boys behavior was also nice. Food was good as it was tasty and warm. Information available on board on what station & speed we are crossing and maintaining. Good to see that even the foreigners had taken a liking to the train. Hordes of travelers heading towards the hills.
