Thanks yesterday for advice on trying another gateway to pay, it worked for that train booking but now........... can someone tell me why when I go through the system again(and again and again), from one station to another in this case NJP to MGS it shows 5 trains but when I try to book it comes up not available, despite trying nearly all classes. All of the five trains cme up with same answer, they all can not be booked already ?
Anyone ideas on this one??????

Thanks Gill x

Just found thread so ignore that question before

Am trying to book now to ALD, rather then Varanasi.............this stuff is not easy!!
Now the train is full , has a wait list but can not use e tickets for wait lists, silly me for thinking it would be that easy!
So now post code I have for hotel is in Darjeeling which it will not accept, any answers to this one, can I collect at station ?

Thanks again Gill x

Gill, try to forget that you know all the info that you need, if you wan't help, OTHER people need to know the same info.

Prefered class and date of journey?

Try to book Jalpaiguri Road to Allahabad on the North East Express.

No, you can't collect tickets at any station, try another hotel earlier in your trip.

There can be many reasons why 'not available' will appear, nobody is going to list them all and many people who may know the answer to your question will be reluctant to reply in case they give the wrong reason.

If you give the date of journey, class and train number, then members can find out instantly what the problem may be.

Without the details, anyone would just be guessing, and that wouldn't help you at all.
