Suggestions on getting from Xi'an to Enshi?

We are looking to get from Xi'an to Enshi Oct 18. I saw another post from 2012 about a 14 hr long distance bus but no trains that would get us there faster. Suggestions would help. Thanks,

There is no direct train on Xian- Enshi.

If don’t mind by night train (that save daytime), Xian- Chongqing North (night trains)- Enshi (D-trains journey time 3 hours) is the option.

Alternatively, Xian- Zhengzhou/Yichang- Enshi will waste more daytime.

Fastest way is to fly from Xi'an to Chongqing (flights look very cheap right now on the 18th), then train to Enshi. You can subway from CKG to Chongqing North station for the train. Using this method, you could leave Xi'an on the 08:05 flight (RMB 270+110 tax), arrive CKG 09:15, then make the D2238 11:29 train to Enshi arriving 14:07. (RMB 119 in 1st class). There's an even earlier flight out of Xi'an that in combo with earlier D train, would get you into Enshi at 13:00, but requires getting up really early. That's what I'd do.

You need to change via either Chongqing or Yichang where provide a lot of bullet trains to Enshi for only 2-3 hours.
