A Guide to the India Railway System and the Indian Train

I’m sharing my practical knowledge about the India railway system, the Indian train, and the India travel ‘culture’. The information in this article covers what to expect when traveling on the India Railway system (as well as what not to expect), types of Indian train classes, India railway facilities, cost of travel on Indian trains, and instructions on making offline and online India Railway reservations.

The Shatabdi leaves from New Delhi station, the Gatimaan from Nizamuddin. Both arrive at Agra Cantt. Railway station and carry two classes of accommodation - Executive Class (EC) and AC Chair Car (CC).

There is only one sensible train option from Agra to Udaipur which is the Khajuraho-Udaipur Express. It leaves Agra Cantt. at 18.00 to reach Udaipur City station at 06.35 the following morning. It has four reservable classes of accommodation - First AC Sleeper (1A), Second AC Sleeper (2A), Three-tier AC Sleeper (3A) and Non-AC Sleeper (SL).

Try searching with these specific stations and class choices, these results should come up. Also, Cleartrip cannot access reservation availability between 08.00 - noon IST and 23.45 - 00.20 IST, so make sure you're searching for tickets outside these timings.
Thank you so much. These trains i want to book.

These trains i want to book:

Delhi - Agra (afternoon train)
Jhansi - Khajuraho
Delhi - Jaisalmer (nighttrain?)
Jaisalmer - Jodphur
Udaipur - Jaipur

How do i know what kind of trains i need to choose? (most conform trains)

No, I'd say indiarailinfo.com is far more useful because it provides that most valuable information: the arrangement of coaches.

They also have an app, which is really helpful. Specially when you know that the train is running late (like four hours), and hence no need to get to the Rly station on time
