Hello,
From which station of Agra do the train to Fathepur Sikri leave? On irctc.co.in I have only found 2 trains in SL classes but one is at 4:55am in the morning (HALDIGHATI PASS) and the other at 19:10 (AVADH EXPRESS), both from Agra Fort, which is good for me as I will be close to the Taj Mahal). Are there other trains, more local maybe?
If not where is the bus station in Agra where I can board to go to Fathepur Sikri?
Thank you very much,
Christophe

Go by road..by bus/car. That will be better for this route.

There is also a conducted tour by the Tourism Department (probably starting from the Government Tourist Lodge near Raja Ki Mandi station at Agra). They will take you to Fatehpur Sikri in the morning and come back to Agra at lunchtime. But if you want to spend more time (a whole day is definitely worthwhile) then hire a car. That will be better.

There may be local bus service, but I am not sure.

(we've discussed this on another thread)

I should have the new timetables by wednesday, but here's info from a 3 year old timetable.

There are another 2 passenger trains, they only have unreserved 2nd class, so just turn up, by a 2nd class ticket and board the train.

Train 284 starts from Agra Fort daily at 08:00 and gets to Fathepur Sikri at 09:08

Train 294 starts from just outside of Agra, then departs Agra Fort daily at 14:00 and gets to Fathepur Sikri at 15:00

Coming back, there are additional trains from Fathepur Sikri at 10:36 and 15:50

It's highly likely that these trains are still running at the same times.

Those 2 trains start from Kota & Bayana, I wouldn't rely on other trains, they start their journeys from much further away, Nimach and Mumbai.
