Heard So Much About Darjeeling Mail Over A Decade. Finally Had The Privilege By The Same On 2nd Feb. I Must Say The Train Is Over Hyped.
PROS:
1. Cleanliness Was Impeccable
2. Bedding Provided Was Neat & Clean, Well Washed & Ironed
CONS:
...
more...

1. There Ain't Any Pantry Car In The Train. Hence, A Cup Of Coffee Charged Here Is INR 15/-. And Bread-Omletter [ Not Even Butter] Is Charged INR 40/- . Simply Loot Business. One Doesn't Have Any Other Option Than Having Such Pathetic Food On A Higher Price
2. Train Reached NJP 2 Hours Late
Early In The Morning We Realized There Is No Water Supply In Wash Basins & Wash Rooms
Next Time I Travel To NJP , I'll Probably Take Kamrup Exp

Made numerous travels. In general a very well maintained train in terms of cleanliness. Regarding schedule, I faced same pattern in every travel - on time departure from SDAH, before time arrival at MLDT, at least 30 min delayed arrival at KNE which remains or sometimes extended until it reaches NJP.

Almost all the coaches are 2013,2014,2015 made with bio-toilets(my coach S2 was 2014 made). Only S3 was 1998 made.Excellent speed throughout the journey-crossed DDJ 14 minutes early and reached SDAH bang on time.

Most preferred train to reach Sealdah on time. Departures from NJP has been unpredictable of late, with attaching of slip coaches and priority treatment given to Saraighat Express at NJP. However, lates are covered during long runs.

Snowfall has started in the 'Queen of the Hills'.........sandakphu and falut received snowfall few days back...........now the famous tiger hill,batasia loop,ghoom also received snowfall..........great season ahead........DHR is also ready to run from 25th december..........
Catch this train and reach NJP by 8.00am .....take the famous DARJEELING HIMALAYAN RAILWAY and reach upto Tindharia......see around place nearby like kurseong,the famous makaibari tea estate and reach Darjeeling
