There are several trains from Kolkata to New Jalpaiguri or Siliguri Station, from where or from Tezing Norgay Bus stand of Siliguri, one can take bus, trekker or hired car to reach Darjeeling. there are two prominent routes - the shorter one taking less time via Pankhabari is steep and better to avoid if older persons or babies are there.
The trains are:
Darjeeling Mail, KanchanKanya Express, Uttar Banga Express, Kanchenjunga Express, Saraighat Express etc

Darjeeling is about 759 KMS from Kolkata by road.

But if you travel by train, you need to stop at "New Jalpaiguri (NJP)" it is about 88 kms away from Darjeeling.

There are direct flight connections from Kolkata to Bagdogra which is about 95 kms away from Darjeeling.

To reach Darjeeling from Kolkata take a train from Sealdah. I dont think any train is leaving from Howrah. Times for that trains check up with time table.
