Hi fellow travelers,

I want to go by train from Jaisalmer to Agra.

The two routes i'm thinking about is:

Route A:Jaisalmer{Jsm Ju Express (14809)} -Jodhpur {Ju Hwh Supfast (12308)} - Agra


Route B:Jaisalmer{Jsm Dli Express (14660)} -Jaipur {Aii Af Intercit (12196) IS THIS TRAIN STILL RUNNING}-Agra

Leaving on the 14th January and need to reach Agra by the 16th January. The thing is I want to have an opportunity to photograph the Taj early morning sunrise at 07h09 - 16/01/2012 and sunset at 17h46 - 16/01/2012.

Route A:

Traveling only by night via Jodhpur i will gain one extra day in sightseeing but will arrive at 06h12 on the 16th January 2012 in Agra. I think the train won't arrive that time because it is toward the end of the journey.

Route B:

Will lose a day of sightseeing and won't see Jodhpur but would definitely have the opportunity to photograph both sunrise and sunset of the Taj.

Any advice or suggestions to gain time or move faster. TAxi would probably be out of my budget.

Train 12196 is still running but looks like it is one of the oddities that has a 30 day booking window rather than 90 days. Route B gives you around 12 hours in Jaipur. Is this your only visit there during your trip? If so you could check your bags at the station and head into town. There's plenty to see.
