Most Important: All timings are only representative to give you an idea. Check with Indian Railways about the current timings. They do change, but by only by a small degree.

The author of this site certainly provides no guarantee that "the trains shall run on time!"


Classes of Service: On almost all trains, First Class, Second Class Sleeper, and Second Class.

On some trains, for example, Rajdhani Express, also - Air-conditioned (AC), AC Chair Cars, and AC Sleepers. AC Sleeper is also available on Patna-Ranchi and Ranchi-Patna.

AC class has compartments configured in two styles. One type has four berths, hence four people travel in one "room". The other type, fewer in number, has only two berths in a compartment. This is the so called "coupe". Both types have a wash basin and a small closet. A set of two attendants travel in the compartment. Linen, pillows and blankets are provided fee by the attendants. They will also take order for meals and care for your other needs during the travel. A tip is expected. This should be the preferred mode of travel.

AC Sleepers are like a community hall. Cubicles containing two sets of bunk beds, arranged in tiers of 2 or 3, open into a long corridor running lengthwise. Another row of berths runs along the corridor. The opening of each cubicle can be closed with a cloth curtain. This partition does not insulate one from conversations of other passengers, and general communal activity that may go on in your compartment. Indian travelers are notoriously garrulous. So if you are not the anti-social kind, join in and have fun. Who knows, at the end of the journey you would have made a few new friends! Don't be offended if, at the very outset, a fellow passenger wants to know all about you. Privacy is a concept not very common in Indian society, and certainly not in Bihar.

AC Chair cars are comfortable, but that is what they are: rows of reclinable chairs in a long compartment.

First Class is like AC in its configuration and amenities, except that, it has no air-conditioning and there are no attendants.

Second Class Sleeper is where most of the "natives" travel. The configuration is: three tiers of wooden bunks, two sets of three on opposite sides, opening into a long corridor which runs from one end of the compartment to another. The middle row is folded down during the day so that you can sit comfortably. A row of two tiers of benches runs along the corridor. . This is where you will meet a cross-section of India. So, if you want to save some money, don't mind the heat and the dust, and the noise, join in with the masses and learn all about the joys and sorrows of the common man in India! Be careful about your belongings, should you decide to get some sleep. Travel light. Always hold on to your wallet!It is not your fellow passengers you should be suspicious of, but people who may get on from wayside rail stations and help themselves with your property when they get off at the next stop!
