Hi Everyone!
Can anyone tell me what's going on with train number 14660 ?
I need to buy a ticket from Jaisalmer to Delhi for 18th February via cleartrip (it should be available in 6 days). I've already bought 8 long distance tickets via cleartrip (sleeper class, general quota) without any problem but when i'm checking this route (no matter which day already available), a see many available berths, but only on cleartrip site! indianrail.gov.in site keeps inform me:
"There is no direct reserved train from JAISALMER to DELHI "
???
Is it a cleartrip's mistake? Or are these tickets really available, but just not via IRCTC site?
Please help me. I'm sooo confused...

Welcome to IndiaMike

I think that must be a glitch on the indiarail.gov.in site. The train shows up on indiarailifo http://indiarailinfo.com/train/15107. I'm sure that you will be able to book on Cleartrip when the time comes.

I think that you are confusing indiarail.gov.in and the IRCTC site. The latter does list this train

Tickets can only be booked via the IRCTC booking portal. Cleartrip has to access the IRCTC booking portal to book tickets.

As Dave mentions it seems to be a problem with indianrail.gov.in. Erail also shows the train as suspended. However IRCTC shows availability till 12th February 2015.

Dave W, aarosh - thank you very much for a prompt response!
(You're right Dave - I wrote 'IRCTC' thinking about indiarail.gov.in)
Ok, so I assume it's not a ghost train I'll buy these tickets via Cleartrip and I hope everything will be ok!
Thanks!

It's a well established train and I can find no news to suggest that it has been cancelled or curtailed in any way. We travelled on it in March 2013. There were not many vendors and the food available at Jaisalmer station was limited.

Booking Not Yet Open

Train 14660 Jaisalmer-Delhi Express is in operation.

The schedule can be checked here.

Currently booking for 13-February-2015 is open, as the reservation opens 60 days prior to train operation date.

So, reservation should be attempted then.
