There are many buses which run between these two places and the road is also very good, except during monsoons.

I didn't got my seat reserved as it was sudden plan to leave for Kolkata. I went to catch Ranchi-Howrah intercity express, but boarded to Adi-Hwh Express with general ticket.

I approached the T.T.E. with general ticket to upgrade me for reservation wagon. He was very polite and within minutes provided me with a birth for my convenience without charging any extra penny. I rarely find so generous TTE like him these days.

The train was scheduled to arrive at 1:10 pm but ended with 2:45 at last minutes of journey due to busy traffic.

Overall it was a great journey in this train, and surely I'll prefer this train next time I plan my journey.

It was a four hour journey and it was pleasant. The train was having pantry service and the food was average. You can have light snacks. But it has many stoppages before Kharagpur which makes you irritated but overall journey was good.

Booked the tickets in 3 days prior to travel and got confirmed seats in AC chair car. The journey time is less than 4 hours and the train was very much on time. The seats were comfortable and the ticket checker was kind enough to accommodate all 4 of us in a single row.

If you have a two day break, and don't want to visit the Himalayas, then Hill View Resort is a perfect place to spend your time amidst the nature with plenty of fresh air and calmness. The resort is located on the NH 33 just outside Jamshedpur city. Its very close to Pardih Kali Mandir, a...more »

On time departure and arrival, very good for official trips, perfectly timed for official visitors The train can be a lot cleaner. The choice of food should increase. The toilets need a lot of makeover. Food needs to be purchased from on - board catering staff.
