I was looking up trains from Howrah to Trivandrum and would like to know how to know the following on the railway website:

It has the departure time and the arrival time. But it doesnt say which day...so i do not know whether it will arrive the next day or in two days. So im very confused and can't plan properly

What should i do?

Basically I will take a train from Kathgodam and go to calucutta before going to trivandrum...I want to visit a relative in Delhi also for a couple of days. So i am trying to figure out whether it is a better bet to go from Kathgodam -Howrah-Delhi-Trivandrum or Kathgodam-Delhi-Howrah-Trivandrum.

The factors are:


1. Availability of tickets (im eligble for foreign quota where applicable)
2. Least Travel Time
3. Convenience of departure and arrival times.

Logically it would be Kathgodam-Delhi-Howrah-Trivandrum. I am not sure about a direct connection between Howrah & Trivendrum. If you have time I would suggest this:-
Howrah - Puri - Chennai - Trivendrum.
From Chennai you can visit Pondicherry. Sri Aurobindo's ashram is a very special place.

Dear sudzindia,
After you finish your engagements in India, from which place you propose to take the Flight to leave India?
=====
@@@But Kathgodam-HWH is a very slow route. Better if you can avoid this. Hence, please come to Delhi by overnight Train;
take the Rajadhani for Trivandrum;
from TVC proceed to Calcutta; and
then to Delhi.

Hi,
There is no good train from Howrah to Trivandrum. Also the trains in this route are not daily. The best option is to take corromondol to Chennai and take connecting trains from chennai.
Also, you can look for airlines between Calcutta nd Chennai.

Hope this will help you.

Regards
Debjit

There is Howarh Trivandrum Express 6324 which leaves Howrah at 23:05pm say on Tuesday and arrives Trivandrum on Thursday night at 23:39pm.

This train also runs on Sunday from Howarh.....


There is Howard Nagercoil Gurudev Express 6358 which leaves Howarh only on Wednesdays at 11:05pm and arrives 12:30am Saturday morning in Trivandrum...eeks!


There is Guwahati Trivandrum Express...(Check the Number...5628/5624) which comes to Howarh Thursday at 3:30am and comes to Trivandrum on Saturday morning at 4:15am...

This train also comes to Howarh Saturday mornings..

you are right..its not easy to read the timetable..since the train is so long and cuts across so many zones~....

you can look for trains to nagercoil or kanyakumari as well...nagercoil is about 64 kms from trivandrum..or kanyakumari which is about 82 kms from trivandrum..and there are plenty of buses between these cities...

i would suggest checking out the beautiful temple at sucheendrum...one of my favorite places...not far from trivandrum...
