Once we had survived the chaos of a New Delhi station and found our seats on the Shatabdi Express it was sheer enjoyment! We were travelling in first class which was very comfortable with a drop down table similar to an aircraft arrangement with two seats each side of the central aisle. We had early morning tea and biscuits soon... More

Taking the train from Delhi to Agra as part of our VJV tour gave an taste of Indian railways and the stations. There had been thick fog and so many trains had been delayed, causing many people to miss their connections. The platforms, at 5.30 a.m. were therefore smothered with people asleep and shrouded by blankets. We felt very sorry... More

The train was punctual and made only three stops between Jhansi and Agra. Luckily I was sitting with my wife on one side and a young German tourist on the other. However, others in our party had people who were coughing on them and we were all separated. They served a spicy tomato soup- forget that. The station at Jhansi... More

We took this train from Jansi to Agra. We were in the air conditioned carriage. The station at Jansi was disgusting. Rats running everywhere, people urinating on the platform. It was not a great experience and we were glad to leave. The train itself was ok. They served a curry meal, which we declined. We accepted the free bottle of... More

This train was difficult to book from outside of India, but once I took the time to follow the steps shared on seat61.com I was very impressed by this train. I booked in executive class, which comes with a very delicious breakfast, including tea, cereal, an omelette, fruit and water. I was very satisfied with the level of service and... More

When my kid asks me what is the meaning of the word impossible, I think the best way to explain it is to ask him to try register and and book a ticket on this (or any other Indian) train. I did everything in order to register, I even used an Indian friend's registration and password to book a ticket... More

Had a recent trip form Bhopal to Delhi in August after our IHM Bhopal Alumni reunion. I had booked in Executive Class, The coach is nice, lot of space, seats are comfortable. The only let down was the food, It seems they have no control whatsoever on the quality & portions. It was not average but bad. Earlier they use... More
