Jaipur train stations to Jaisalmer

We are trying to book 2 tickets to Jaisalmer from Jaipur. The only train available on the 10th October going from Jaipur Junction is Wait Listed. However, when searching for the train from Gandhinagar Jaipur station, there are berths available to book.

How easy is it to get to Gandhinagar Station?

Will the train actually stop at this station?

Thanks in advance for replies.

Should be no problem whatsoever Jim, just allow enough time to reach the trains station and track down the platform.

At Jaipur few private bus operator, operate the night sleeper bus(s) two between Jaipur to Jaisalmer, may be one or two buses but its non air-conditioned bus and they don’t have online booking facility too, depart from Jaipur at 9:00PM near to railway station and arrive at Jaisalmer at 10AM, if its time schedule and non AC is OK for you then I can help you in booking stuff

Although there are government buses also available but they don’t have sleeper class so its bit hard to travel so long in sitting

And train has availability (I seen right now) from Gandhi Nagar train station so you may book your train tickets from Gandhi Nagar to Jaisalmer, its not far away from Jaipur or you may board in train at Jaipur station too if you have tickets from Gandhi nagar to Jaisalmer
