We took the executive class from Delhi at 07:40 to Chandigarh, arriving 11:45 and from there with a vehicle to Simla. At Shimla hotel at 15:45 (exactly 4 hrs). The food provisions are adequate and there is even a choice of omelet, with or without spice. For the small price difference you really should choose the 2 + 2 seats... More

Water bottle and coffee was served immediately.Food served was average. Upma was too hard, Chutney & coffee was watery. No extra tissues provided. Vada was fine. Reached chennai on time. Overall, a good journey, but... More

We took the Shatabdi Express fro Delhi at 4:30pm to Amritsar. The train arrived in Amritsar at 10:45 pm. Taking the Shatabdi was quite a surprising experience for me and definitely not what I expected. For one, you are assigned neat and comfortable coach style seats and are able to store your luggage in overhead compartments. Space for luggage is... More

The following day, board the world Heritage cog wheel steam train (Toy Train) up tp Ooty. This is a fantasic experience. Sit back and enjoy incredible views while marvelling at such... More

The train was more than an hour late. The train station was crowded and with all of our bags we had no option but to stand and wait. We had bed-like births, not seats. the people we met were friendly and courteous, though they spoke no English. A vendor came through with food but we had brought our own snacks.... More

We had booked second class A/C. It's 8 hours from Mumbai to Ahmedabad. You need to book in advance. The train departed on time and staff served breakfast followed by lunch. Seats were comfortable and locals friendly and chatty. A much better way to see India than flying. We arrived in Ahmedabad on time. The train pulls over 26 carriages... More
