My Train Travel from Patna to Amritsar by Amritsar Mail – A Worthy Experience to Remember

Hi, this is yet another account of my travel experience and this time I connected my official trip with leisure. An audit officer by profession, financial accounting is my forte, and I love to improve my organisational skills too. Since my job demands a lot of travelling, I joyfully trot along anywhere I want to. I always vindicated my choice of destination, which was mostly fixed officially. Like always, my train travel from Patna to Amritsar was fixed and I had two of my buddies joining me.

We booked AC two-tier tickets online to travel by Amritsar Mail (13005). I started my travel early in the morning with as much zest as I do every time. I greeted my friends at the Patna station and we got into the train, which departed exactly at 4.20 am. The seats were quite comfortable and the compartment was clean. I am particular about the cleanliness and so travel mostly in the upper class.

We were quite prepared since we had to be in the train for a day and night before we reach Amritsar. Of course, there are many Patna to Amritsar routes, which are quicker; nevertheless, we prefer to travel in this for some reasons.

We had some quick snacks when the train crossed ARA junction and talked about our plans at Amritsar, which beckoned with its lush green surroundings and bustling towns. It was time for some reading, brushing up with some daily events, and within no time I was browsing through the newspaper.

The train stopped at the Varanasi Junction at 9.15 am and we had our breakfast, which we had carried from home. The roti with channa was quite filling and I had some sweets too. In the mean time, we had a guest, who was also to Amritsar. Being a regular visitor, he offered us some tips and places we could visit there.

Though it was a long journey, we did not feel any tiredness. The train reached Rampur Junction at 8.30 pm and by the time it reached Moradabad Junction at 9.20 pm, we finished our dinner and got ready to sleep. Any Patna to Amritsar routes take you to the entire stretch of Uttar Pradesh, touch Haryana and enter Punjab.

My Journey from Patna to New Delhi – An Exhilarating Experience!

I am a person who remains busy throughout the year and hardly finds any time for leisure and holidays. But after a long time I had got a break from work and the vacation was really long. It was supposed to stretch over some 12 days. So I wasted no time and started drafting a plan, all by myself, to make a visit to the nation capital, New Delhi.

I had visited New Delhi once when I was a child but it scarcely had any footprints in my mind. As I was very young then, I could not visit many places. Or I can say that I might as well have visited, but nothing was left in my mind.

I started my journey to New Delhi via PNBE NDLS Special Express. The train starts off from the Patna Junction and ends its journey at the New Delhi station. I boarded my train from the Patna Junction, which is also known as the PNBE Junction in Railway abbreviation. The train operates for just four days in a week so I had to plan it accordingly.

I finished my work on Saturday and boarded the train on a Sunday afternoon. I had deliberately planned my trip to kick start on Monday morning as I was sure that people in New Delhi would move to work and the visibly crowded streets of New Delhi would be much sparse and calmer on working days.

My journey started from Patna at 12:15 pm in the afternoon. It was the month of October and the temperature of New Delhi was supposed to be cooler. Hence, it was just the perfect time for me to visit New Delhi. The train went passed Bihar and went through Uttar Pradesh till it finally reached the Nizammuddin Railway Station in New Delhi.

I covered many places such as Kanpur, Allahabad, Mughal Sarai Junction, Ghaziabad and Buxar and finally reached at my destination. It was neither a very long journey nor a too short one. I spent around 16 hours in the train. But since I had chosen the sleeper class, I could enjoy the majestic land terrains of India through the India. The journey by PNBE NDLS Special was fun-filled and topped with odysseys.
