Please keep in mind that while booking in IRCTC or PRS if you choose Window Seat and you get a Window seat in any coach between D1-D8, most probably it won't be a windows seat. As the coaches are same as passenger trains, so the seating arrangement is 4+1, but in IRCTC database its wrong (3+2). That's why if you choose windows seat and get a seat in between D1-D8 it won't be window seat, even IRCTC chart shows this wrong seating layout. All the coaches before AC CC are general coaches having 4+1 seating layout and and all the coaches after AC CC has normal 2S layout (3+3). So if you want to get confirm window seat then choose between D9 and D10, as D11 is reserved for tatkal tickets.

If you have a couple of hours to kill at Howrah station, you can take a ferry from Howrah to either Fairlie Place or Babughat and return. It's one of the finest ways to have a little flavor of the city, the breeze from the river while looking at the Howrah Bridge and the city riverfront magically calms your mind.
The video here is of a short ride from Howrah to Fairlie Place ghat. Fairlie Place Ghat is right next to Millenium Park on the riverfront and BBD Bag station of the Circular Railway. Fairlie Place Ghat is also at walking distance from various govt buildings like GPO Kolkata, Fairlie Place (Eastern Railway HQ), RBI, Customs House, Kolkata Port Trust, Shipping
Corporation, Writers' Building, Dalhousie Square etc.

Hell of a train, this. Excellent cleanliness in 3AC, modern, new coaches, mostly punctual and great speed after the speed-up. Missed out on taking photos, but thoroughly enjoyed travelling in this. Highly recommended if you're thinking about travelling to UP or Rajasthan from Kolkata.
