Hi, I know the Darjeeling Mail leaves each night from Kolkata to Siliguri. When does it return - is there a night train from Siliguri to Kolkata? Thank you

Hi, is the Kanchankanya Express the best one? Does the Darjeeling Express not go back to Kolkata at night? Thanks, Malcolm

Darjeeling mail leaves from Sealdah Jn ( Kolkata) at 22-05 hours and arrive next day New Jalpaiguri at 08-00AM.

Overnight journey is more better so my votes goes to Darjeeling Mail.

Your first preference should be Darjeeling Mail. Because, that is the only train in this route runs on time and it has AC first class coach also.
