➡️UP train is placed on Platform No 12 of Howrah at around 16:00 hours ONLY AFTER UP Malda InterCity had departed form there. (DN Shantinketan Exp departs as UP Coalfield Express),passengers can start boarding (Sometimes AC coaches gets cleaning,so doors remain closed)
*Seats get filled from Howrah,even if u can't find a seat,try to find them in the front coaches
➡️DOWN train is placed on Platform No 2 of Dhanbad at around 05:30 AM (some designated coaches OPEN AT Asansol,Raniganj,Andal and Durgapur ONLY)
train May LEAVE LATE if Shantiniketan Express arrives late.UP Mostly remains ON TIME,though DOWN train gets poor priority AND RUNS MOSTLY 10-15 MINS. LATE.
➡️If you are a GENERAL TRAVELLER,please opt for Reservation as Daily Passengers "rule" this train,you WON'T GET seat easily in Unreserved compartments
➡️Neat and clean coaches,UP train (usually) gets platform maintainance at Howrah.
➡️Toilets are NOT ALWAYS clean.
➡️Food available from vendors
➡️Charging points present in most of the coaches
➡️DN train has scheduled overtake of Rajdhani Express before Mankar, sometimes overtakes happen in HWH-BWN Chord also.PRIORITY for DOWN TRAIN IS NOT GOOD.
➡️Old no 3029/3030 ,Converted to SuperFast on 03/06/2006.
*When introduced,used to Stop at Barddhaman,then around 1985 (probably),Stop at BWN was removed and a Galloping HWH-BWN EMU Local was given as compensation

The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI.
