i gather that ambala is little-visted, but just on the offchance, does anyone know if there is a tourist booking office at the train station, or will we have to go through the fuss of buying a little ticket and upgrading it by sweet-talking the guard?

by tourist booking office , if you mean a computerised train ticket booking counter, yes there is, with more than 4 counters if i remember right.
Ambala is a big railway station, but if you reach the station on time of the train, then buying a card ticket and then smooth talking to the tte for a berth is the only option.
and if you want to travel from ambala to delhi, there is hardly anything like resrvation in a reserved coach, with businessmen and daily travellers filling the reserved seats.
