My friend and I will be visiting India starting next week and we are waitlisted on train 12343 northbound from Sealdah to New Jaipalguri on Sunday, Feb 1st. we're in 1st A/C and are at the top of the list according to the post as of this morning. We have travelled on Indian trains before and will be taking a bunch of them on this trip, starting in Delhi..all our other trains are confirmed so was wondering what to do if we turn up early on the day of and find that we are still waitlisted. We are both senior citizens, btw, and from the UK although I live in the States.
If anyone has any tips they could throw our
way, we'd sure appreciate it ! Much thanks in advance...

Thanks to all of you. Here's the PNR No if it helps: 6336302840
I believe the entire train for that day is waitlisted at this point.

Pls post here sir /pnr
Later on you can check your status regularly under the My PNR sub tab .
Also if you are willing to travel a class lower (AC2 tier) on the same train, there are seats available under foreign tourist quota. You may book that if you want peace of mind.

Don't worry it'll confirm.easily...
But as you've booked in 1A you won't get any special preference of Senior Citizen quota or being a Foreign Tourist..special.benefits for these two quota are normally earmarked in the Sleeper,2A & 3A coaches

I don't really mind what class as long as we can get on. We booked this through a travel agent in Delhi two months ago and they confirmed all trains except two (from Varanasi to Kolkata that took forever and stopped everywhere which I have since cancelled and we're flying instead), and this one. I checked the other classes on this train for this date and they're all waitlisted too. Train 12377 which another gent recommended is also waitlisted in every class with 3 in First a/c so if we were to go with that one, we would be 4 and 5 on the list. I think maybe we should stay put as we are 1 and 2 with 7 behind us. Makes sense, I think given this late stage in the game. I am monitoring the status each day and in the meantime...
will keep fingers crossed !!
Thanks so much for all your help and advice !
