My wife and I (in the 70s now) have visited India several times, and in October will have 2 weeks to visit Calcutta, Varanasi, Lucknow and Delhi in our way back to Shanghai for our flight to SF. We are planning 3 nights in Calcutta, but how do we get to Varanasi? Is there any overnight train advisable for us?
3 nights in Varanasi, daylight train to Lucknow (3 nights there) and from there to Delhi.
Please advise.

A convenient overnight train from Howrah(dep.20=35) to Varanasi(arr. 10=25) is the 3009 Doon Express, which runs daily.

The 2391 Shramjeevi Express is a convenient train from Varanasi(15=15) to Lucknow(20=25).

For the last leg of your journey there can be no better train than the 2003 Swarn Shatabdi Express !
