The train was delayed by 23 hours and came the next day. However this train is most suitable to those who start their journey from Lucknow. This train arrived Kathgodam early in the morning from there you can easily get taxi/bus on reasonable rates.

This train is superb as it's always on time and the travelling is very comfortable. Itís a fully an AC train so there was no problem at all for any type of weather. The scenes were just adorable throughout the journey. I advise all of you to go by this train and prepaid taxies were available outside the station so no need to waste your time.

We {me and my frnds} started our journey from Lucknow Station and we were travelling by train because I love love traveling in the train. It is a 6 to 8 hours journey and we enjoyed a lot in the train. The train reached 30 minutes late but it was ok. This was my first time travel in a hilly zone so we were in full mood. There are lots of places to view and weather was just awesome. Overall we spent a good time there.

It was a nice trip. The route between Bareily to Kathgodam was not good for around 25 km and the rest of the journey was good. The person coming from Delhi side may divert to Ram Nagar from Moradabad and then from Ram Nagar the route to Nainital may be taken up.

The train is leaving from Lucknow Station at after 12 am at night so be careful before doing the reservation because the data changes, means if you want to reach on 15th then take the reservation on 15th as when you are leaving for the station from home the date will be 14th.
