The TTE will start checking the tickets starting from santragachi station.. So if you are not on the train by Kharagpur, your ticket will stand cancelled and your seat will be given to an WL passenger.
Please plan accordingly.

I and my wife want to take this train to new delhi from NJP. We will be travelling by AC First Class. I want the two seat coup for our journey. How can we make sure that we get the coup for 2 people only?
Please tell us the procedure and the tricks to get one if you know of any.

You Can Book The Tickets But Its Not Sure That You'll Get The 2 Passenger Cabin
While Railways Try To Allot Seats As Per Passengers Booked On 1 Ticket
Try Booking Tickets In 12235 Or 12435 For Better Chances
Wish You All The BEST !

Kurseong-Darjeeling train ride costs Rs.30 (~ $0.50) for Second seating and Rs.185(~ $3.2) for First Class
isnt it too cheap for a heritage train, a journey worth remembering?
