:- There are two platforms on the station. Most of the time, train will depart from platform 1. PF2 is used only if PF1 in not empty.
:- For NFL (National Fertilizers Limited) (6-7 KM), GAIL (Gas Authority of India Limited) (9-10 KM) and JUET (Jaypee University of Engineering & Technology) (12 KM), you have to deboard your train at this station. (NFL,GAIL have dedicated stations as vijaypur and raghogarh but trains does not stop there except Sabarmati, which stops at vijaypur).
:- Tata Magic, Autos are easily available when a train arrives

at station. If no vehicle is available than walk to the highway, you can find a bus passing from there.
:- A Ladies waiting room is available.
:- Train announcement will be done manually by ECRC only 5 minutes before the arrival. You can go to station master room (Left hand side of entrance) for enquiry (But only 1-2 times, He gets angry :P)
:- Washroom, very dirty (Not usable).
:- Cows and dogs are there to entertain you while you wait for your train.
:- Platform is not enough for even a 18-19 coach train so better walk to the middle coaches inside the train if you are at the ends of train.

hoooooooh!!!!! Reached Dhanbad sharp at 11:01 a.m. (10 minutes early)
Anyhow i just managed to catch this train which was 1 minute early at Durgapur station.
.
This train is one of the most punctual trains of India...... i travelled in this train several times and i never saw it getting late more then 20 minutes.
.
...

This train is best suited for those who want to catch their jobs and for students.
For passengers, moving for north of Howrah interchanging from trains like Gitanjali, Howrah Mail, Azad Hind, Samarsata, etc. this is the best suited train and Siuri-Howrah Hool Epress (as the second option)

Just for information to all members - 22387/8 Black Diamond SF express is an ECR train & not ER. ECR has recently asked Railway Board for LHB coaches for this train. They expect to receive this rake shortly. If LHB fied this train will be the first Intercity service to have LHB rake in the eastern zone. The only drawback will be - this train is always overcrowded & if there is no middle doors then there will be chaotic scenes at intermediate staions. Hope the LHB ICE rakes are provided with the middle doors for the convenience of the passengers.

You will get buses for intercity travel or hired 4- wheelers for long journey from Paltan Bazar (south side exit). Bargain hard or you will be looted.
If you are approached by some stranded person or a big family with kids who will start the conversation with the question if you know Hindi, ignore. This is another begging scam. It is their routine; not their sudden fall. They will even say that they don't need money but just something (may be food) for the kids.

id and ILP ready as it is one of the heavily militarized zones of this country. Don't argue with the army at any state. You will not be spared even if you're a IAS. Unless you're proven harmless, you're deemed suspicious.
Kamakhya is better to visit in the late afternoon to avoid crowd. Hire car from Paltanbazar. Rs. 500 will suffice if you bargain.

To go Guwahati, always prefer this train. Because Saraighat is a Good Train and 85% coaches are 2014-15 Made. Any other trains between Kolkata and Guwahati except Kamrup didn't have a Pantry Car. Food was Excellent in Saraighat. Saraighat is Not a Normal Superfast, it is a Super Deluxe Express.

They serve this for Rs.30. For the first time I spotted Chinese in IR and it was pretty good. Only if they could give me an extra sauce sachet. :/ Anyways, I suggest you to go for this one!

This chowmein is served only after 1500 hours so the timing is a bit poor. Can't hold off lunch for that long.

is chilling and you will not feel necessity to to turn on the fan.
Lady in-charge knows only Tamil and no other language (not any other South Indian language), so bear with her. It may appear that she is taking rude but its not so, was polite with me, despite language barrier.
Dorm gets full by 9 pm for night stay, during day its generally available.
