Fra, try to give more info, or you just get a reply to what you asked.

An example

You've asked in 2 different threads about trains from Delhi to Amritsar, and Delhi to Rishikesh, but there are daytime and overnight trains in both directions between Amritsar and Haridwar (the mainline station for Rishikesh).

Use www.erail.in to find trains and prices between 2 places.
.

Please look at this thread, even if you are not in India.: Have you seen Jonathan Spollen?

He could be anywhere now: You might have met him, be able to help, or give information.

Thanks to all for your answers.

Actually I was supposed to go to Ladakh, but of course, due to the terrible situation over there, I have to change my plans, and I am a bit confused. I am trying to study possible alternatives. So I thought a good idea could be going to Rishikesh or rather to Amritsar.... any suggestions are wellcome!

Hello Fra,

The Shatabdi express train in the morning will be fine if you don't have reservations of hotel in Amritsar. It starts at 7.30 in the morning and will reach amritsar at about 1.30 pm.

Does anybody have an idea of type of Second Seating seats in Shane Punjab train from Delhi to Amritsar. Are they like jointed seats in Taj Express or any other trains or separated like in Jan Shatabdis?

Yes, Second Seating seats in Shane Punjab are joint seats. 3 seats are joint as one and are for average built people. Even if 1 of them is heavily built, it does become an issue.
Generally if you can spare a few extra bucks, Shatabdi is an excellent option. You can always opt for 3rd AC in Shatabdi.

All the best for your journey.

If you need more details or help while in Amritsar, let me know. I visit Amritsar very very frequently

On a related note, I was wondering how fast does those trains New Delhi - Amritsar sell out?
I'm not going before January but that is more of the tourist season I guess, so is it worth booking looong before or maybe just like a week or so before?
There are quite a few trains going that route evert day so I'm thinking it's not as much hustle as with a train that just go a couple times a week...?

(there might have been a more suitable thread for this question, if so - my apologies!)

A few trains get cancelled on that route in January because of the fog threat, and bookings for those trains do not open till 3 days before, so the other trains on that route should book up faster than normal, so book well ahead to be safe.

Ok, thank you!

Yeah, I saw some info about the fog and train cancellation, I guess the fog will have it's way to delay and hinder....

Thanks for answering my query. You are right 3 joint seats are not that comfortable for 6-7 hours long journey. I think I will try Shatabdi if budget allows. I still have time to plan as I should go in end of November.

Thanks again.
