We boarded train at 10pm & arrived Ambala cantt station after almost 25hr which was a really long journey but luckily the train was on time.

We reached Ambala at 1am midnight which was a very chilly night from there it takes around 4 hrs drive to reach Shimla.

The other alternate way of reaching shimla is by air which is quick but expensive or you can board Paschim Exp and reach shimla via kalka.

The journey was good as we were with group but the worst part was the railway food which was not at all good we survived journey on chips packets & cold drinks.

The toilets are also we also very worst.

Post Kota station the trains get very crowded and when it reach New Delhi the situation gets even worst.

I would rather recommend to book first class or Ac.

As we had a connecting flight from mumbai to chandigarh via delhi we had to change our flight from delhi. Staff quality was excellent as very quickly they transferred our luggage from one plane to another and there was always a staff who boarded us to another plane quickly. The food provided by airline was also tasty and quality was too good. The service by air attendant was also very nice as they welcomed us in polite and friendly way.

Its best to go via flight instead by road, it saves lots of hours which can be utilise in other activities, and you can escape from tiring road journey, plan Shimla from Chandigarh and from Chandigarh by road it takes around 4 hours.

Journey was very nice. Online food was available on this train by travelkhana.com. Pantry car is also available on this train. We enjoyed the journey by playing cards, antakshari etc. Also the co-travelers were very co-operative and helpful. There were stations like Ambala and Delhi cantt where food stalls are available and refreshment quality good.
