Due to Puja holidays ruah, I could not secure a booking from HWH-NDLS directly. Only 1 ticket in #12301 was left till GAYA for 1-Oct-14 Wed. So I purchased that, after I found that #12439 is to reach GAYA about 55 minutes after it. I got a CNF ticket in 12439 as well.
I understand the connection is a bit tight, and I have option to try Tatkal for direct HWH-NDLS ticket. My question is: is the time gap of 55 mins. too less considering that both are Rajdhani and would get preference in signals etc.?
As per the recent 30 days' arrival/departure history I should be fine, but is there anyone travelling in 12439 on regular basis who can help?
