The Kolkata Rajdhani - The star of Eastern Railway

Mar 17, 2016
Mode of Transport: Train

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.

A good experience

Mode of Transport: Train

The travel experience with my family is most enjoyable with a short time travelling, the train run fast like rajdhani. It has 5 stations, such as asansol, kanpur, allahabad,howrah, and new delhi etc. The train arrived with its right time of arrival time. Finally the journey with my family is a good experience.

An excellent train journey

Oct 28, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

Poorva Express should be your 1st choice when it comes to travelling to the capital of India. The train's service is among the best I've ever experienced. We travelled in AC III with my family and it was a good experience. There were good security arrangements in the train with RPF personnel patrolling the coaches every half an hour. This train does not provide unnecessary stoppages at all stations. Moreover you would get to experience the super deluxe LHB coaches used for Rajdhani Express. (Yes, Poorva Express too uses these LHB coaches).

I must say the toilets are really clean. The cleaning was done every one hour or so and needless to say there was no water problem unlike other trains. The food was good, but the salt was a little less.

A scenic route

Oct 14, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

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. :)
