We had long discussions and what we realized that taking the 8am/8:04am trains from Howrah or Sealdah doesnt make any sense. We will reach at or post 12oclock and it's peak birding season so by that time the spots will not be in favour of us, the boatmen will be already hired and the fishes will be tired of human invasion.

So, we will be catching the 5:38 am train from Howrah and will reach Purbasthali by 8am (scheduled time). Those who have problems and cannot make it by that time can catch the trains from Howrah or Sealdah at around 8am. Atleast a major chunk of volunteers reaching early morning can pave the way better for the rest and also it will be fun travelling together for 2.5 hrs or so in a large group in a picnic mode!!!

The other option for people who don't want to delay things so much is to break the journey. There are trains to from Howrah to Bandel Junction at 6:20am and 6:26am and Bandel to Purbasthali at 6:38am which reaches Purbasthali at 8:03am.

Note: The Sealdah route via Naihati is very unpredictable and trains delay a lot so it is recommended to avoid that route even though it's a Sunday morning.

So here are the train details with major stations from where others can opt to board from (Timings are as per train schedule)

Destination: PSAE/Purbasthali

37911/Howrah-Katwa Jn Local

Howrah Departure: 5:38am
Bally Junction: 5:51am
Chandannagar: 6:20am
Bandel Junction: 6:37am
Purbasthali Arrival: 8:02am

We can update the status as per whoever is preferring the travel time. As per the discussions I had I am updating the status of individuals I know of.

Howrah Train at 5:38am

1. Amitava da (amitava1969)
2. Sourav (xarg0n)
3. Rajan (aquarajan)
4. Krishnendu
5. Rahul (Boarding from Bally)

Here is the Train route from Howrah that I felt may benefit volunteers in someway.
