American Plaza to New Delhi Train Station

We are staying at The Eros Hotel, American Plaza which is near Nehru Place. We have booked a train journey from New Delhi Station?? to Kalka on the 12011 Kalka SHTBDI. I have 3 questions and hope someone can answer these for us.

1. It says the station is NDLS...is this New Delhi Railway Station by Chemsford Road

2. If it is this Railway station, I believe it is about 9 miles from American Plaza. We would prefer to take a taxi to the station. The train leaves at 7.40am. Does anyone know how long the journey would take and how much.

Thanks in anticipation, Chris

Yes NDLS is near Chelmsford road (or better say near Cannaught place).During morning hours it will take around 25-30 minute to reach NDLS from Nehru place.

Hi,

Ndls is New Delhi Railway Station , it is around 9 miles from Nehru place . Tuk tuk will cost around 150 and taxi will take ( Ola or uber ) 300 or taxi from Hotel can take 500 to 1000.

You should leave your hotel by 6 am it's 30 minutes travel for ndls

Kalka Shatabadi mostly leaves at platfrom #03 which is Chemsford road side well known as Paharganj side . Tell the taxi driver to leave you at paharganj side of New Delhi station. Try to be at station at least 30 minutes prior to departure of train. From your hotel to New Delhi station is almost 30-40 minutes drive away in moring time.

Chris , may be you face at NDLS a few touts who will misguide you by saying train is cancelled / postponed / reconfim the tickets , do not trust them otherwise you will miss your train..

Hello to all the above 3 posters. Thank you so much for all the info and will take note for our journey. Yes, I have read all about the scammers and have read to get a porter to take you to your train. I will give him an incentive to get us there quickly with a large tip!!!

Thanks again for the info, Chris
