The bus was a rocket bus. As usual the seats were not so good and the ride quality is average. But however, the bus is bang on time starting from the origin up-to the destination.The staff are more or less okay. Another problem with the bus is its over-stuffing. After the seats are filled more passengers are boarded who stands in the passageway making the environment claustrophobic. If you are travelling during the summer it would be advisable to take an A/c bus and not this one.

A pathetic journey in Ex Serviceman A/c bus from Digha to Kolkata. Bus was good looking but it was terribly jerking all the way. Road was good enough but bus was very poor, never ever board this bus specially elders and kid. It reached Kolkata on time. No charging points, TV was not working and had rest stop in a very dirty shop.

This train is the best suitable in my point of view as its starts early morning and we have whole day to roam around the city. The train was clean and the co-passengers were supportive. 3-4 hrs journey was a good one. Train was not so late. Services were good. Toilets were not fully clean but it was usable.

12857 Tamralipta Express and 18001 Kandari Express are same set of bogies, running under two different names.

The trains usually depart at right time from the new complex of Howrah Station and is not more than 20-30 minutes late at the destination. The journey experience is nice even in 2S class, so A/C Chair Car depends upon choice.

Trains toilets are somewhat clean. On the route, there's plenty of water supply and food supply so that you don't have to depend on railways catering. At the destination, New Digha mini hotel sector is nearest, with plenty of hotels to chooser from; however, staying at Old Digha depends on traveler's choice.

To sum it up, for such a short distance of travel, these trains are somewhat nice and within tolerance limits of the average Indian traveler.
