Class of travel from Kolkata to New jalpaiguri? My wife & I

Will visit Darjeeling for 3 nights next month. will arrive new jalpaiguri by darjeeling mail but still cannot figure out on which class to travel. Since its going to be an overnight journey, im looking for the safest means of transportation. My question to TA Experts is:

Should i purchase 1A, 2tier or 3tier ticket? which is safer? does 1A give me a cabin for the 2 of us or will other people stay with us? Please advise???

1A is the best option for the train. Allotment of coupe done for 1A class on the date of travel. 1 coupe for 2 is there in some coaches.
