Train was good with clean toilets, food served was also ok. Passed through Ghaziabad, Moradabad, Rampur, Rudrapur, Lal Kuan, Haldwani stations and finally reached Kathgodam.

Departure from Delhi is at 6:00 am and the arrival time for Kathgodam is 11:40 am.

The food serving staff at the train after serving the meal came back and asked for tip which was really a new experience at all otherwise the overall journey was nice.

My experience of traveling the city by bus was excruciating. I didn't have enough change for the fare. I went back home and got the change then had to wait an entire hour for another bus. Once I had gotten on and paid my fare, I saw how crowded the bus was. I had my choice of seats; One between two fat women, one next to a crying baby or one with a big wet stain on it.
