➡️UP tran is placed on Platform No:7 of Howrah at around 05:25 AM & has parallel departure with Ranchi Shatabdi Express from Howrah (RFs can capture it)
➡️Both UP/DN trains get good patronage.Hence prefer reservation if u are boarding from intermediate stations.
➡️Neat and clean coaches
➡️Toilets are always clean.
➡️Food
...
more...
available from vendors.
➡️Charging points present in most of the coaches
➡️Good train to travel to/from Bolpur,Rampurhat (both Tourist destination)
➡️Passengers headed to Sagardighi Power Plant can get free bus facility from Sagardighi Station to Power Plant (and vice versa),but the bus leaves to STPPL within 15 mins of arrival of this express...hence u have to walk fast to designated bus stop or u can also board a Toto/tuk tuk from the LC gate to bus stop for Rs10
For return journey,bus is also provided (link bus services also provided to DN Hazarduari exp at Behrampore,DN Kaviguru exp at Sagardighi,UP Malda Intercity at Khagraghat Rd and DN Rampurhat-Howrah Exp. at Rampurhat (this one on Saturday Only))
➡️In DN direction,Ganadevta Express gets delayed after Rampurhat but has aggressive run after Barddhaman & makes up the delay.
➡️If DN Ganadevta gets heavily delayed,it provides halt at Khana Jn. so that passengers headed to Durgapur/Asansol side can board Asansol local.
➡️It was originally 3017/3018 Howrah-Rampurhat Ganadevta Express,earlier stops (when introduced) were Howrah,Seoraphuli,Barddhaman,Bolpur,Ahmadpur,Saint hia and Rampurhat (it used to skip Bandel)

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    The following changes are being introduced to keep the PNR Forum functioning. . 1. A "bookmarklet" called "PNR Refresh" has been created. Just Copy/Paste a small piece of text into your browser bookmarks. The bookmarklet will be available by morning. . 2. When you click on Post/Update/Refresh PNR, you will be taken to the Official...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

A full dedicated offline-capable messaging/blogging app, encompassing all the features of the IRI site. The RailFan app...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...

    This is an advance notice of a new feature that will be introduced within the next couple of days. The feature is called "Spottings". . 1. Any time you see a train ANYWHERE - while railfanning, while travelling in a train, while visiting a station, seeing someone off, receiving someone, while your train...
