We had a very bad experience. The train was late by more than 8 hours. This train runs late always. If possible travel by Rajdhani Express. Never take Sikkim Mahananda Express. My overall schedule got disturbed due to this train. Coach and toilets were clean. Seats was in good condition.

Rajdhani train is good for travel. It's fooding is good. Minimum 6-7 stoppage from Varanasi to New Jalpaiguri. I would suggest all the travellers please chose the Rajdhani Train for travel. We are going in Rajdhani train in first AC and its interior is good. It was a very fast train.
