Hi I'm a foreign tourist travelling with my 23 yo daughter. I need to get from Agra to Mathura in middle of day after visiting Taj Mahal. The ideal train time wise is the 10:53 Utkal Express. The 2AC is 1422INR compared to 301INR for sleeper. I can't find an AC Chair Class. Was wondering if it would be safe or appropriate to take the sleeper class for the 1 hour trip rather than pay the extra for 2AC?
Something like the Shatabi Express would have been more suitable but the hours don't suit our schedule. Any advice?

Welcome to IndiaMike.

That train is travelling from a long way out and can be delayed by an hour or two. As well as 2AC and Sleeper it carries 3AC which will probably be a bit less crowded.

The mentioned train does not have Chair Car class.

You may prefer to take a cab for such small distance of around 60 kms.

If you want to have your Indian train experience catch the 55334 Agra-Kasganj passenger at Agra Fort station at 15:40. This train gets you to Mathura Jn. at 1735. You will have to travel general 2nd class but the train starts at AF so you can get there early and bag seats. The one way ticket costs the princely sum of Rs. 15 so that should get you some Brownie points with Uncle Scrooge and co. Furthermore, this train doesn't even touch Agra Cantt, that horrible place infested with touts and package tourists.
