Hey everyone,
Ok so if price isnt the biggest concern would you all agree buying an india railway pass is a good decision. I'm a bit confused, im going in dec-jan so the only reason id be interested in the pass is because i feel like everything's going to be booked and i want to play the trip by ear and not book ahead.
So how does it work, i walk up to the ticket counter and tell them where i want to go and i automatically get a ticket in the class ive bought the pass for even if its full? Doesnt the trip down to Goa from Mumbai run on a different network or would my pass work? Because as of now that was going to be my only ticket buying ahead of time for obvious reasons.

No, you have to make a reservation like everybody else. But I have heard people saying that it is easier to break into other quotas with the pass. Even with the pass, do the bookings online before you go to India, if that is possible.
