Since, you have decided against this train, there isn't much to say.
But to decide which train is better, you should give us the options of at least 2 trains.
Elderly people is what you have said but you didn't mention their age.
Also, if they need only LB, then with the amount of rush this train notices, LB is very easy.

have a CNF(not RAC) ticket in another train,SMB Is much better than Sitting all night. At least, you can get a chance to request co-passengers for exchange of berths.
Thanks.

No Sir. Garib Rath is not a good option to travel with elders.

No no sir, in Danapur Express. Have found one side lower, one side upper and two upper berths. All together in A1. With my parents travelling with me, both aged, my father 75 and mother 65 with problem of rheumatism, I needed one more lower berth. But that was not available. So I will have to make do with only one lower berth.
