This was my 2nd trip to Darjeeling with my parents. I booked three tickets of Shatabdi Express (12041) of Rs. 1145/- per head of AC chair Car of dated 30-09-2015 from Howrah Station. We reached Howrah Station from my home by Taxi before 1:30 p. M. The said train's departure time from Howrah station was 2:15 p. M. And it was on time. The speciality of this train is the timing of departure. It is far more correct than the other trains in the case of departure on time.

The AC chair cars were very clean, actually the train is renowned for its cleanliness. I got the window chair. I enjoyed great view till evening. I bought singara and tea for us from Bolpur station, bought water bottle form Malda town station. My mother brought dinner for us. Luchi, tarkari, misti was our dinner menu.

The toilet was clean and no smell was there. We really happy to be a part of this train. We reached the last station named New Jalpaiguri Station at about 10:20 p. M. The total distance was about 561 k. M. We enjoyed the train journey really great.

After coming out of the station i. E. New Jalpaiguri Station, we took taxi which was near roadside, it took to the Darjeeling on 1st October at about 01:10 a. M. It was another 90 k. M. Journey. We all were in dreams at the taxi. When I got up I saw our hotel Sonar Bangla in front. That is my small journey experience.

Booked the tickets 1 months prior. The train was right on time at Sealdah. Night travel was great. Booked 2nd AC tickets. The train was pretty neat and clean. There was no disturbance from the outsiders. Overall, the journey was quite comfortable and good.
