Hi all.
I have booked all my train journeys via clear trip for my Xmas Adventure. Only one train left to book from Varanasi to Delhi. I really fancy doing a First class train Journey. All my other bookings are 2AC and one AC3. (only one available from Khajuraho - Varanasi.) And a Day train- Seating

Train Poorva Express 12381 Varanasi - Delhi 18:47- 7:35 2nd Jan 2015 -
(not available yet for booking, a few days to go. I'm checking earlier dates, etc )

According to Cleartrip AC first class not available ? (AC2 available)
However this train starts Howarth Junction where AC1 is available on any dates I pick towards the end of Dec

Could I book the train from Howrah to Delhi even though I'm not getting on until Varanasi.
Will someone have taken the birth in-between as it will appear empty ? (There are 12 Stops prior to Varanasi)

Does my name still appear on the printed seating chart at Varanasi, if I'm listed to board at Howarth ?

Is it worth the extra cost ?

Thanks, TT

If you are a no-show at howrah then the TTE will give your seat/berth to someone else.

By booking through cleartrip you can change the boarding station on the screen where it says 'proceed'.
So select Howrah Delhi as a start, the price is also adjusted.

A week or 2 ago I made my first 1AC trip since there was no other choice. I didn't like it at all.

'That's such a personal thing - I made my first 1AC trip on 31st March this year. Loved every minute of it.

That's the train I want to book in February. You made a very good choice. Enjoy your stay in Varanasi and your 1AC trip on the Shiv Ganga Express.
