Hi is there a way to find out if the train is delayed and how long for without going to the station, for example if I was to take the kerala express from agra to delhi could I go on trainenquiry.com 1 hour before and check the estimated arrival time, so I could relax at the hotel if it was delayed instead of train station? is trainenquiry.com reliable?

you can visit www.trainenquiry.com but I am afraid it doesn't get updated frequently. But yes if it says that the train is delayed for 1 hour, be sure that it will delayed for 1 and a hour minimun.. ..

I had one incident when trainenquiry had a 3-hour delay for a train which arrived on time...

Also do not buy a reservation from Agra to Delhi on any of the long-distance trains. Simply buy an unreserved ticket and board the next train, then ask the TTE for an upgrade.
