Hi guys, I am planning a trip from TVC to SVDK coming april (2016) with my family ( Wife & Son ). I need your help in deciding, which train or links would be better for a conformable & memorial journey. I have nailed upon few options, ur valuable inputs will be of great help.
My son will be 4 yr 11 months at the time of travel.
Should I book half ticket for him ?
I was thinking to book so, as it wouldn't be comfortable to sleep together on 3A berth.
If I did so, would there be any issues ??
Why can't you think about taking TVC raj to NZM and then catch SVDK train.
buffer maybe. Don't forget that they have an almost 5 yr kid with them, and waiting for hrs may not be ideal. Kerala SK and Kerala express have lesser waiting time than that by TVC raj.
Rajdhani TVC NZM 3500 approx
Kerala exp TVC NDLS 2500 approx
Shri Sakti NDLS SVDK 1000
HIMSAGAR TVC SVDK 2500 approx
Per head 3A
So I purposefully neglected TVC raj, I feel 1000 for for food on TVC raj is not justified!!
Also buffer time is more compared to kerala.
Guys, is Himsagar bad option?
such a long journey in a train can be far too much of a stretch for anyone.
a Buffer or waiting period will allow you to stretch your legs a bit, have an actual meal/freshen up and then continue.
Its better to book at ticket for him keeping age as 5 asits very long joureney extending for 72hrs.
1st option travel by himsagar take room at katra 1600 hrs have rest start at 5AM to reach temple by 9AM-10AM (13km walk uphill)3hrs for darshan and return by evening keep one day as buffer and leave katra nextday by uttarSKexp@1830 and catch kerala exp at Delhi dep1130 make use of retiring room for freshup
2nd option Kerala---SVDKACExP 2days in katra return by uttarSKExp---kerala take tele scopic ticket(check manually whether the option is there or withdrawnn)
Looks like today's Himsagar Express overtook Punjab Mail at Ganj Basoda. 16317 left Bhopal at 10:15 and passed Ganj Basoda at 11:34:
37. BHOPAL JN(BPL) 3 09:15 09:20 10:05 50 min 10:15 55 min
GANJ BASODA(BAQ) 11:34 11:34
Punjab Mail, on the other hand, left Bhopal at 09:45 and was given a longer halt at Ganj Basoda to allow 16317 to overtake.
20. BHOPAL JN(BPL) 2 09:35 09:40 09:38 3 min 09:45 5 min
Yes it gonna hppn @ NZM..where Himsagar will report huge Before time & Jhelum & Punjab Mail may make way...
But for that, Punjab Mail too needs to wrap up the distance...its still @JHS & will nt reach NZM b4 11 in any case!!
Well, Punjab Mail finally ended up getting so hopelessly delayed that it even got overtaken by the Bhopal - New Delhi Shatabdi just before Agra. Not expected to reach NDLS before 0100 at this rate.
16787 / 16317 both runs combined from Erode to SVDK. Then how their ETA could be different at NDLS.
NTES point agreed but how two different time
