We boarded the Kanchanjanga Exp from Sealdah. The major challenge is the long time taken by it.
The train arrived at its destination 15 minutes earlier than the scheduled time.
Food and rest of the facilities were okay so as the AC. But there were lot of insects inside the coach.

We are going to Guwahati from Burdwan by Saraighat Express. It is a superfast train which reaches the destination one our late. The service on the train was satisfactory. Toilets were clean. I got upper birth on the train. As there are small number of stations, the journey was smooth. Meals are also available with your order.

The train journey was smooth. The overall travel experience was good too. This train is very popular among tourists. It was on time, only 30 minutes late at Guwahati from what I remember. Foods were OK. The timing was convenient. And yes, it was a smooth journey.

For going Howrah to Guwahati this is only good train. It is always on time, in train veg and non veg food available. ac coach and sleeper coach both available but you have to take reservation 20days before. Form Guwahati station to Shillong you can take car or tata sumo. It will take 3hrs form Guwahati to Shillong, scenery view of this journey is also awesome.

We were happy travelling and we enjoyed every moment. The toilets were very clean and that was most important. The food was just okay. Minerals available on purchase. The service were good. Clean bedding were provided to us. We traveled in 3rd AC and it was good.
