The journey to Shimla was fantastic we enjoyed too much. Travellers should pick North East Express as it is timely and do not take much time to go there journey was much more convenient as compared to other trains like Shimnachal, Rdp, Farakka, Shramjeevi and other so people should go and enjoy the beautiful place so enjoy every one best of luck.

It was the most beautiful travel of my life. I could not forget this visit till my last breathe. There was a lot of ups and downs in the travel. The road was good in Shimla and I enjoyed driving very much. There was also this very amazing view when we looked outside the car.

It was a good journey and this train is convenient for travelling from Danapur to Shimla. I travelled with third AC and the toilets were clean. It passed many interesting places and we enjoyed very well. In the morning good tea was available in this train and the catering facilities were very good.
