buying tickets at new delhi station or buying on the internet?

HI ALL

have some questions that i couldn't solve by my self....please help

I'm planing to take the SHATABDI train from Delhi to Kalka on the 27/8 7:40AM, since i will be landing in Delhi at midnight i want to buy my ticket on the internet.(planing to go on the CC class)

1- Can I book a ticket on a FOREIGN TOURIST Quota?(I'm a woman traveling alone)how busy is this train?
2- If I'll get to the station early morning will i be able to buy the ticket there?
3- What is the opening time of the foreign office or can i buy in another place?
4- What is the name of the station which is on the end of the Phar Ganj?

Thank you for reading and answering, I'm running out of time and have to book the ticket tomorrow morning so...
good luck to me[shock]

cheers
yael

1. Foreign Tourist Quota can not be booked online.

2. It would be difficult to get a confirmed ticket on the same day morning.

3. The International Tourist Bureau office is open 8:00 am to 8:00 pm from Mon - Sat and from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on Sunday.

4. The station on the end of Pahar Ganj is New Delhi Railway Station.

These days the Shatabdi Exp gets filled up quite early do book at least one or two days in advance.

A few minutes of walk will take you to the main Kalka-Shimla road & you will find plenty of buses going to Shimla, alternatively right out side Kalka railway station you will find share taxis & in my opinion that is a better option.
You will be served breakfast in the train, the price is included in the fare.
Enjoy your trip & if you have any other question feel free to ask.
