These train schedules are subject to change, so it is recommended to check the current timings and availability before your trip. Additionally, you can book train tickets online or through a travel agent.
How to book:
You can get tickets from the ticket booths at the city train stations – which is the cheapest way to buy one. Sometimes buying the ticket off the counter can save you up to 25%.
However, sometimes it might be risky to wait and book at last minute (even 2-3 days in advance are considered last minute) – seats or berths on popular route are not always available. Ticket agents will charge you extra fee when you reserve online – most will provide free ticket delivery.
Ticket fare: $40 (Soft Seat) – $52 (Hard berth) – $57 (Soft berth) – Agent Fare
