New Delhi to Kolkata Train Preference
1) 12302 NDLS-HWH Raj
India's first Raj; the ER king is still the first priority for anyone travelling on this route; no questions asked.
2) 12314 NDLS-SDAH Raj
...
more...
Taking largely the same route and same timings as the HWH Raj; there is not much difference between the two. Mostly an item of personal preference when booking.
3) 12260 SDAH Duronto
India's first Duronto and theoretically taking lesser time any of the Rajdhanis,it still gets lesser priority than the Rajdhanis and may get delayed; still a good option for travelling[pure LHB coaches].
4)12274 HWH Duronto
First train on the list to also have SL coaches; has a good TT between NDLS and HWH, but suffering from lack of priority from controllers; also has hybrid -LHB instead of pure LHB.
5)12304/12382 Poorva Exp
Tough choice between this and the legendary Kalka Mail; this wins because of LHB rakes and more punctuality than the Mail(also has better railfanning opportunities since it faces OT by all the east bound Rajdhanis).
6)12324 ANVT-HWH Exp
Takes lesser time than the Poorva exp and runs with a better TT(morning arrival at Howrah); though lacks a PC(pantry car); maybe considered over the Poorva in some cases[LHB rakes as well].
7)12312 Kalka Mail
Historically the most important train running on this route; this train(used to run as 01 UP/02 DN) has been degraded by the IR in recent years; runs delayed very often. Has a good morning arrival at HWH though.
7)12250 ANVT-HWH Yuva exp
A weekly train; on paper the fastest on the route; though not given high priority. Also the fact that it lacks a PC and has very low stoppages makes it worse[ICF rake and personally don't feel like travelling overnight in a chair car].
8)12330 WB Sampark Kranti Exp
Faster than either the Poorva or the Kalka Mail, but has a bad arrival time at Sealdah(evening arrival, may be a problem if it gets delayed too much).
9)13008 Toofan Exp
One word, don't. There is no reason to travel by this train(especially end to end). Takes 36 hours to cover the distance; has a bad TT(evening arrival at Howrah and it will get delayed). Too many stoppages in between.
10)22858 ANVT-SRC Exp
Originally ran as a special; later regularized as a weekly. Hugely delayed and goes via the longer TATA-KGP route; use it as a last resort.
11)13120 DLI-SDAH Exp
A super crawler; taking a mammoth 41 hours to cover the distance; runs without a Pantry Car.
12)13132 ANVT-KOAA Exp
Purchase a cycle and start cycling towards Calcutta. You'll reach there before this train. Taking 40 hours to cover the distance, still horribly delayed by 10+ hours, cancelled every other day, no pantry car[will possibly get LHB in 100 years].

See it evening arrival and average delay delay, and a quite disaster, bad oh and no pantry car as well
Trust Though me, have do travelled see merit in this(back your when argument, it both ran trains as are a hugely special) delayed and it lack was pantry possibly cars the most horrendous journey I've been through
13008 actually takes way more longer
The only advantage is that HWH is easier to deboard at if one's train arrives at midnight
The rake comes from SRC to ANVT and the same train goes after some time from ANVT; very less time it gets at ANVT, this creates delays while starting from source itself. See it evening arrival and average delay, it's quite bad. Though I do see merit in your argument, both trains are hugely delayed and lack pantry cars. 13008 actually takes way more longer. The only advantage is that HWH is easier to deboard at if one's train arrives at midnight.

Seems like you know nothing about our great "Crawling Legend" Toofan Express
LOL
And please once travel in SL class from kolkata to Delhi in Toofan express. Then you will feel heaven in 22858 , while onboard Toofan Express.

Edited my earlier response. 13008 is quite bad, though I've never travelled by it. It does maybe deserve a lower spot than ANVT-SRC.

Now tell me , for arriving at Howrah instead of SRC , are you ready to risk your safety and waste nearly 10-12 hrs extra in 13008 Toofan express?
Obviously man , 13008 rightly deserves to be below 22858. Reasons:
1. Delhi to Kolkata , in 13008 I would be spending 36.30hrs (Adding delays it comes nearly 43-44hrs) , with "pathetic" 85 halts enroute.
No pantry. No safety. No useful catering. And also arriving Howrah late night 1-2 am normally.
2. 22858 is better bcoz it takes mere 27.15hrs (Adding delays it
...
more...
comes out nearly 32-33hrs) with just 9 halts which is way better than Toofan Express. Pantry is not there , but still Catering Facility is present. Only glitch is its night arrival at SRC. But If it arrives SRC before 10 pm (which it generally does) , then transport are present for connectivity with Kolkata town.
22858 is not good for Connecting journey from Kolkata , but its surely Far more better than travelling Delhi to Kolkata & vice versa for a Local Kolkata inhabitant.
Now tell me , for arriving at Howrah instead of SRC , are you ready to risk your safety and waste nearly 10-12 hrs extra in 13008 Toofan express?

Maintenance is still manageable , but the main problem is very less TAT at ANVT which causes the 22858 to start on time from ANVT. If RB somehow changes its Departure Timings from ANVT to be late in the evening, then it can surely be able to arrive SRC by night 10-11pm and they can also extend it to HWH as after 11pm , the SER side becomes bit vacant as all major night departure (like Mail,Azadhind,Puri trains etc) would have already left HWH.

The problem with late departure from ANVT is that the evening slot is too full on that route. In either case, IR would have to reschedule the train to late evening(after Rajdhani gang) to make it any sense to run.

Thats what i am saying....The departure could be made late evening or may be at night after the Purushottam departure from delhi.
If departure is made about 11pm from ANVT , then its scheduled arrival time at SRC can be made 3-4 am (adding delays it could arrive SRC by
6-7 am morning) which is very brilliant.

These points are very useful for passengers from other parts of India who are traveling for the first time between Calcutta and New Delhi. Even foreign tourists can go through these points to get an actual idea (although many of them travel from Calcutta to Gaya, then Gaya to Varanasi, Varanasi to Allahabad, Allahabad to Mathura and then to New Delhi)... thanks :)

I think 12323/24 too is very poor in punctuality with Kalka mail OT it occassionally b4 MGS (Re-ot after MGS though) but a terrible delay in both sides should bring this train to less preferable.

Historic trains that have lost their value ->
1) Kalka Mail
Initiated in 1864; this 01/02 was the primary way for government to transfer between its summer and winter capitals. The most important train on its route in its time.Sadly, it is delayed too much these days. Plays second fiddle to the Rajdhanis these days.
2) Imperial Mail
Running
...
more...
between Mumbai and Calcutta, this was one of the most luxurious services in the world[click here it is treated as a second class train by IR now. Runs via the longer route and bad patronage.
3)Frontier Mail
The first train with AC coaches; extremely punctual in its time. Runs between ASR and Mumbai nowadays, somewhat retains its glory.
4) G T Express
The name's enough. Legendary train(ran b/w Peshawar and Mangalore once), overshadowed by Rajdhani and TN superfast.
5)Taj Express
Primary link b/w Delhi and Agra when introduced,now plays supporting role to Gatimaan and Bhopal Shatabdi;still ISO certified though.
Views are welcome.

You are lucky to view Grand Chord Route Legendary trains diverted via Main Line Route. I had read somewhere that Doon Exp & Kalka Mail were made to run via Patna until Grand Chord Route became a robust option post 1906. Was #EDFC work the purpose for diversion? :)

It was a hard work on your part. I've traveled for 2 times in this train from Howrah to Delhi and this train NEVER disappointed me till now (although a few parameters may be rated up or down)... :-D
A few questions from my side to you:-
Q1) Were officials like the ER GM and DRM skeptical about Kalka Mail's LHBfication?
Q2) Were there
...
more...
any other IRI Members apart from you in the ER Railfan Group at this occasion?
Q3) What was the reddish maroon coach all about at the beginning of the Kalka Mail's rake?
.
Thanks :)
