Eastern Railway (ER), South Eastern Railway (SER) and Southern Railway (SR), will run special trains to and from Kolkata to all parts of the country like New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Ernakulam/Trivandrum, all parts of UP, Bihar, West Bengal, North-East and other more on the occasion of Durga Puja and Deepawali/Diwali festivals during October and November 2013. Only very few of these trains go to Howrah, all others terminate at Santragachi, Shalimar, Sealdah or Kolkata Chitpur.
