So I've discovered cleartrip and love it - what a dream... Anyway I was able to book Calcutta to Darjeeling early June but cannot book Jodhpur to New Delhi at the end of the month. Why would trains be booked out (I tried several days) at this hot time of the year?

Go to http://erail.in?T=JU::NDLS: and select you travel date train and class. You get then an overview of the availability.
You cannot book tickets here, so use the information on cleartrip.

Make sure you do to all stations. Cleartrip should show the trains, and once you click the button it will show available/wait-listed/etc. Does it show the train as wait listed? Or does it not show anything?

Also, the indian rail site doesn't do reservation/queries between 11 pm to 6 am India time (something like that), and that's where cleartrip gets their info. So if it's during those times, it won't work.

But, you're right, the end of June would be a strange time for those trains to be fully booked.

Plenty availability for the end of June, as Jyoti said perhaps you were trying to book outside of office hours.

The railways booking engine is shut from 23.30 to 00.30 IST. All train bookings on all sites will not happen during this time period.

Ah Indian Railways made the changes then narendra.d, thanks for that. I'd heard they were considering this last year but didn't know they had gone ahead and implemented them..
I notice the availability function is a bit faster these days too. Which is just great.

You can book up to ten tickets in a month, is it possible that you exceed this?

I can access trains and availability no problem on cleartrip. There is availability on the 29th June.

Hmmmmmm, tried using another browser?

Between Jodhpur and New Delhi there aren't any bookable 2s carriages, so sleeper is fine.

Thanks so much...I have only booked 1 ticket so far so have not exceeded quota. What is SL then compared to 2nd sleeper? what about New Japaguiri to Patna the message was 'no information' for 11/6?

Jod - delhi

This is so annoying... Now I'm trying to book the sleeper (there is availability apparently) but still getting this message 'Aaagh! We couldn't find any trains. This might be because we couldn't find any trains for that route, or because there's no availability on your dates." NJP - Patna also not working

Sorry, I have no idea.
I have tried the Jodhpur-Delhi (train 12462) and encountered no problems. Of course I did not go through the real purchase.
