Advice on Using India railway's Booking Website

All train connections should be pre booked on the Indian Rail website as far in advance as possible, (link to Indian Rail Website). To check availability on the India Rail website you need both the train number (given above) and the station codes (show below) and the class of seat. Please note that there are two train numbers per route (one going, one returning) a common user mistake on the India railways website is by putting the reverse train direction with correct station codes. The unhelpful official India railway booking website gives no indication of the mistake and promptly returns an "invalid route " error much to the frustration of the user.
