The train is too good and the train arrival and departure is in exact time. Seats and bathroom are good. Different varieties of food is available in the train but first time I booked Tatkal ticket from IRCTC website. We are going to Puri with my wife and my friends and friend's wife. Fast time I booked 4 ticket and I got 4 seat serial wise but 2nd time I booked 2 tickets and I got one seat with in serial but 2nd ticket in coach D6. But our 5 tickets are booked at coach D2. That was such a horrible experience in my life

It was a good experience and an amazing journey. Total time taken is 4 hr and 30 min. Awesome and fun-filled journey with friends. Good behaviour by the bus staff and fare was bearable. Take bus from Howrah. Have a happy and safe journey. Only disadvantage is that there were a lot of stoppages. Fed up of the stoppages. There was a lot of commotion in the bus. More number of people than the space. This should not happen.

A three hour 15 mins journey by Tamralipta Exp was a pleasant one. Boarded from Howrah Station at 6.40 am and reached Digha at 10 am. The punctuality of departure and arrival was noteworthy. The train has a pantry car which serves breakfast with no choice - bread and omelette. The chops from vendors at Mecheda Station is a must have. The train especially the wash-rooms need attention.

After a splendid stay at the Tourist Lodge in Darjeeling a few years back I eagerly looked forward to a great stay during a short weekend trip to Digha and I must say that I was completely satisfied. A two nights stay at this property is a reaffirmation of the fact that with a bit of effort,...more »

On the way to visit Digha with friends we hired a small vehicle from local travel. This became a great journey experience. We stared journey at the afternoon from central Kolkata to Digha via Konkan Expressway. WE had couple of stops at roadside dhabas. Food was good at the dhaba and we had great funny moments with friends.

Started our journey from Howrah Station to New Digha by Tamralipta Express which was on time. The seats were good but the condition of the toilets were pathetic and seats near the toilet gave you a horrible experience during the train journey. The train should be cleaned properly otherwise railway will soon loose it's potential passengers for this route.

The journey was very smooth as it takes 3 hr 20 min to reach Digha with minimum stoppages. AC and non-AC seating reservations were available with very reasonable fare. Veg and non-veg food were offered by the railway catering but we didn't dare to take it.

The journey was accompanied by the picturesque villages, lush green paddy fields, rivers, canals, bridges and the smiles of children who will be waving their hands to you.
