I will be travelling by 12101 Jnaneshwari exp whose arrival time at HWH is 3.35am , after reaching HWH i have planned to go to BHP Bolpur Shantiniketan by 13017 Ganadevta exp which departs at 6.05am . My question is shall i reserve tkts by Ganadevta exp or will i be able to travel by General compartment by Ganadevta , because in case Janaehswari exp reaches late i will miss the train, so for safer side i plan to purchase general tkts after reaching HWH , in that case will there be rush in Ganadevta , i have small kids age 11 to 14 with me .

I am ready to book in advance but my concern is in case Jnaneshwari reaches late ( sometimes it reaches after 6.05 am ) then i might miss the train and in case it reaches right time or around 5 am then i can catch 13017 Ganadevta exp, then in that case if i do not hold reserved tkt then will i be able to travel in general with kids and luggage ? Is there rush in general compatmet ?

I wish to reserve ticket for my family from KYN to NGP consisting of 4 members . Also i wish to take along with me my niece who will be 11 yrs and 5 months old, on date of travel. but i cannot book her ticket along with my family of four as she will not be considered as family on my ltc ticket, so pls advise as to how i can take her along with me because i have read that children below 12 yrs are not allowed confirm rly ticket for long journey. So will the authorities issue a seperate for her alone with berth in serial with us .

4 passengers will get consecutive seats as they would be on one form, but getting your niece's seat in the same coach will depend on PRS Servers. She may get berth in same coach or different coach..
Secondly, you do not need to take ID proof while booking, you need to carry ID while travelling as per Railway rules..

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
