It is a good train, ticket is very reasonable. The train has pantry car. They have both veg and non-veg items. The food quality is average. The toilet of the train was not clean. The train is not on time it was 30 minute late. The train is super fast and the price is very low.

The bus condition was not good, by no means it seems like a luxury bus at all. It has small seats, very much uncomfortable feeling if someone is taller than normal Indian people. It was jerked like anything, yes some of the roads were bad but you expect much good service from them by providing more comfortable bus.

For shorter destination and weekend travels I always rely on travelling by my own car. As usual this time also I visited Digha by my own car. The road to Digha is in very good condition except some few stretches where road widening work is going on. It took 4 hours to cover the distance from my home and the car was sedately driven and relaxed and no over speeding.

I followed this route Kona Expressway, Kolaghat, Nandakumar, Contai, Digha. One can stop at Kolaghat for break and refreshments. There is the famous Azad Hind Dhaba. I stopped there on my return journey but the onward journey I went non stop.

After Nandakumar on Digha state highway there are occasional sharp turns and speed breakers so it is advised to be cautious on that route.

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.
