Darjeeling to Varanasi?

I'm looking for rail transport from Darjeeling to Varanasi, ideally in overnight form (though the trip is clearly longer than a single night!). Any suggestions?

I think North East Express fits in your schedule which departs from New Jalpaigudi Railway Station at 1715 hrs and arrive Mughal Sarai Railway Station at 0705 hrs.

Mughal Sarai is located 19 kms / 45 mins from Varanasi, taxis or buses are easily available from Mughal Sarai Railway Station to Varanasi

##You are right, but there is NO quota for NJP>MGS Journey by 2505North East Express. Please look at this:

...and finally, if you want to enjoy the Rajdhani Express experience, book the ticket as NJP>>NDLS and get down in Varanasi.
Please look at this:
---
*12435 DBRT RAJDHANIEX 25-12-2010 NEW JALPAIGURI NEW DELHI GENERAL
S.No. Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Class - 2A Class -3A
1 25-12-2010 WL 2/WL 2 AVAILABLE 48
2 28-12-2010 AVAILABLE 8 AVAILABLE 68
3 1- 1-2011 AVAILABLE 2 AVAILABLE 71
...............
##This 2435 passes through NJP on every Tuesday and Saturday,and the NJP-NDLS Fare by AC2Tier is Rs.2225 and by 3AC it will be Rs.1735/-.
...........
My last and final advise is 'please don't purchase a waitlisted ticket'!!!
