Hello Everyone,
Has anybody considered the above options, i know the Karnataka Express stops at practically every station on the route, but somebody told me that the Samprark Kranti is always late...

Any advice welcome..
Thanks in advance

Travel time of Karnataka Exps is 39.15 hrs.
Sampark Kranti - 2649 takes 35 hours- it leaves Yesvantpur on Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun.

Be careful about another Sampark Kranti (2629). It takes 43.50 hrs to reach Delhi..

On the delayed arrival, I found that 2649 has arrived 50 minutes late today and 15 minutes day before yest.

Karnataka Exps is also late by half an hour today and yesterday. So, Sampark Kranti (2649) is a better option.

It is worth to mention Rajdhani Exps (2429) is much faster than Sampark Kranti or Karnataka exps. It takes only 33.30 hrs to reach Delhi.

I have travelled in all the trains and i felt rajdhani to be best as far timings is concerned.

Thanks arunganpath and n kumar,
the rajdhani does not depart from bangalore on friday so my best bet would be to travel on the sampark kranti-2649 as per as your suggestions I think.

Thanks once again!!!

You are welcome huchi02,
Sampark kranti is not a bad train at all, sometimes long distance trains might be late by an hour or two but train journey is something a different experience.
wish you a happy journey,
with regards,

Both the trains are good. Sampark Kranti take 2 days & 1 night & Karnataka take 2 nights & 1.5 day.

SK is 4 hr faster but due to schedule you will get bored by sitting.

Best is Rajdhani which take 33hrs 2 nights & 1 day.

But i like Karnataka, bcoz its go around by an intersting route....
Sands of Time..........

Dear huchi02,

##It is good that you have chosen the 2649 Karnataka Sampark Kranthi, which, please note DO NOT runs on TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS.

##Likewise, the 2429 Rajdhani DO NOT runs, as you have rightly observed, on TUE/FRI/SAT.

##For the purpose of record, 2627 travels for 2406 Kms., whereas 2649 travels for 2276Kms.

##But the beauty of Karnataka Express is that it gets Twin Diesels for its run on Bangalore-Itarsi stretch.

##You are right in so far as 2650 NZM>>YPR Karnataka S.K. is concerned. But Mr.huchi02 wanted to travel from Bangalore to New Delhi. Kindly go through the schedule of 2649 Karnataka S.K.

if you got time on your hands - and enjoy train travel... then sampark kranti
i took one route 'to' - and the other 'fro'.
and yes, it was delayed both ways.
42 hours blr - del
38 hours del - blr
pantry is great - as is their service... positively no complaints.

never travelled by the rajdhani, blr / del.
