12345/46 is back with it's old coaches and this makes total 3 dedicated rakes for this train. This is the best train between HWH-GHY-HWH and very nice train to start up the journey towards NFR. This train runs at MPS throughout it's journey. HWH-BWN-MLDT-NJP 110MPS , NJP-NCB-NOQ-NBQ 90-100MPS and NBQ-GLPT-GHY 80-90 MPS.
OBHS is available and will do any kind of cleansing if called upon. AC coaches are very clean. This is a VIP train said even by TTE's. Gets enough priority for punctual running. Pantry service is not good b'coz high rate and low quality. Local vendors are good and offers plenty option.

Saraighat runs with 2 rakes only....
Undoubtedly, the best train connecting the largest city of Northeast with Kolkata

To go Guwahati, always prefer this train. Because Saraighat is a Good Train and 85% coaches are 2014-15 Made. Any other trains between Kolkata and Guwahati except Kamrup didn't have a Pantry Car. Food was Excellent in Saraighat. Saraighat is Not a Normal Superfast, it is a Super Deluxe Express.

I travelled on this train in 2008 and 2009. That was a Very good experience. Difference between 2008 and 2009
My travel in 2008
I travelled in Sleeper Class, Poor Sleeper Class Coach
My Travel in 2009
I
...
more...
travelled in AC Three Tier, Good AC Three Tier Coach
At Then, Saraighat was Good, But now, Saraighat is outstanding.
Difference Between 2008 and Present
Loco Links
At Then, Saraighat was Halted by WDM3A/3D of Howrah Shed, Now Like Darjeeling Mail, Saraighat Also halted by WDP4/4B/4D of Siliguri Shed
Coaches
At then, Saraighat go Guwahati without AC First Class, but now Saraighat go Guwahati with AC First Class
I love to Travel this Train.

Very nice train connecting HWH to GHY in very minimum running time. Train has got new rake most probably new coaches. All the coaches of this train are new and you can easily get 3 pin sockets in each compartments.

One of the finest train i have ever travelled. Majority of the coaches were new ones fitted with bio toilets & charging points were present in each coupes.Coaches were very well maintained & cleaning staffs had done a good job. They sprayed room freshners & even sprayed insect killer when we complained about mosquitos & small cockroaches around our berth.

Although it happens to be one of most loved and favorite trains
...
Over the time after getting new coaches, Saraighat has improved from leaps and bounds in terms of cleanliness for sure.....
Earlier it was extremely pathetic in terms of cleanliness

Of course it does, bt its jus a matter of dinner. People can manage a meal anyhow. But if it could carry 72 passengers extra, in my opinion would be more useful. There are trains that run 3 days without pantry car. For Koaa ghy stretch, pantry is not a must have necessity

Talking about my recent trips we travelled from HWH to GHY & in return from GHY to NFK. The train maintained an excellent speed throughout the journey . It ran on time towards GHY but in return journey it got late near NJP . Overall a good train to travel to North East India from Kolkata.

Saraighat Express has become a bogus train now. Unfortunately, its still best of the worst. It is almost always late these days. I traveled by it last week, and it was 6 and half hours late!

There were times when people used to say even a SL or a GEN ride is better than various 2AC,3AC of other trains in this route.The train used to follow aggressive timings and had minimal stoppages.The speed,galloping action and the priority given to it was awesome

observing your experience it seems that u travel least in this route. that's why you are stating this. The route is scheduled with too many trains from Kumedpur junction and also due to the route's geographical condition its very difficult to maintain the schedule. and there some times for the maintenance, trains of this route r rescheduled specially during winter and rains. And If you say Saraighat express is a bogus train then u better go for flights.

For people travelling from NCB or NOQ to HWH, the quota for these stations gets exhausted too soon.. Changing the boarding point to NBQ and paying 50 extra rupees can often fetch you confirmed seats as there are ample number of seats from the stations in Assam..

Very good catering service. Pantry men sell foods & snacks after regular interval & take orders for lunch & dinner. Quality is also not bad.
