The Indian Railway caters to almost 20 million passengers daily, yet during times of any festival, the railways have to run some additional trains to meet the needs of travellers.
For festivals like Diwali and Chhatth passengers often book their tickets beforehand, but due to the high demands of getting home during the festive season, not everyone gets a confirmed ticket, and most of the time the tickets get unavailable. Also, boarding the train with a general ticket is something we would not suggest you do because trains heading to Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Jharkhand are over crowdy.
Thus, we are here with the good news about 2 pairs of Pooja Special Trains that will run in the upcoming week. These weekly trains will start running from 18 October.
Here is the information about these special trains:
- JBN FESTIVAL SPECIAL (04010, 04009)
JBN FESTI SPL (04010) will run every Tuesday between 18 October to 8 November. The train will depart from ANVT at 23:45 (11:45 PM) and reach JBN at 05:20 AM on Thursday.
