hello, any advice on this one please? this net cafe connection is a bit slow for the indian rail website.

is there a direct express train from Delhi to New Jalpaiguri? (for Darjeeling)

If I travel on the 26th March will it be sufficient time in advance to book it on the 16th March at Delhi station? (I've booked tickets there before so feel happier doing it there than at a small station).

Do you know how long (hrs) this journey might take?

yours thankfully!

Dear woodlouse,

==============================
Please note 2424 Rajadhani (5 days in a week) consumes 21 Hours, whereas 2436 Rajadhani consumes 26 Hours. Both 2502 Sampark Kranthi and 2506 North East consume 27 hrs - one hour more than 2436 Rajadhani.
===========
As opined by Mani, perhaps, there should not be any problem for you in securing confirmed accomodation in anyone of these 6 trains. Given a chance, and provide its schedule suits your travel plan, go for 2502 Sampark Kranthi.
