Don't worry about it, when you arrive in Mumbai, go to cst and book under the foreign tourist quota, you will get the tickets, no problem, you might have to pay in dollars or pounds.

the waitlist as it stands means you are 99.99% sure of berths ... another option at the booking office is the Tatkal reservation ...

Dear hughhill,

We have narrowed it down to 2 trains for the 21st as all others have huge waiting lists,
1st train is the 'Guwahati Express' (train number 5467) WL3/WL2. for AC2 3 tier sleeper.
2nd train is the 'Gorakhpur Express' (train number 5017) WL1/WL1.
Again for AC2 with 3 tier sleeper.

------
##Kindly note that the Trains selected by you 5647 (**not 5467) DOES NOT terminates in Varanasi, and hence the Waiting List figure which you got is deceptive because it is Pooled Quota Waiting List.

##Ofcourse, 5017 would be the best option, because the LTT-BSB and LTT-GKP Quotas are one and the same.

##Please look at this:
