if u are in a train to shalimar, get down at nearby santragachi station. unless u have booked a cab or rented a car from some agency before, it will be very difficult to get a bus,taxi,auto or other public transport.

No Bro You Can Not Get A Bus Directly To Kathmandu
First You Have To Go To Sonauli The Indo Nepal Border,Then Cross The Border On Foot
Once In Nepal You Can Get Buses For Bhairahwa,Pokhra & Kathmandu
GKP To Sonauli By UP Roadways Or Private Operators From Station Itself

Jogbani and darjelling both take different route from burdwan so this overtake doesnt matter.

the best train to travel from kolkata/asansol to gorakhpur. maintains good speeed upto jhajha. gets delayed by an hour after jhajha due to conjestion ahead by the sealdah-ballia express. if on time it may be lucky enough to overtake the ballia. usually reachers gorakhpur about 40 mins late.

it is a wonderful train between howrah-mughalsarai. but so not so good after mughalsarai. it gets heavily delayed at the mughalsarai-kanpur section. it records an average of 2-3 hours delay everyday or sometimes even more. :/

i travelled to gorakhpur and back from kolkata via purvanchal express. it is the most important train connecting kolkata with northern bihar and north-eastern uttar pradesh. but this train is excessively delayed to give way to other trains like sealdah-ballia express,horah-amritsar express, gangasagar express and others. don't you all think this must be stopped and the train be given some extra advantage? after all, most peoople travelling from gorakhpur to west bengal prefer this train more than any other.
