The best connection between the City of Joy and the place of Rabindranath Tagore. Train always remains clean, with few passengers even in the UR coaches. Maintains good speed all the way through H-B chord, stops at only scheduled stations. If you are going for a weekend getaway to Shantiniketan, then you can choose this train without a blink of doubt. But in Poush Mela, you will never find a seat in this train... The CC gets sold out first.
