It was a good experience; I booked my tickets in Talkat and took three tier AC. And what did I have? Excellent experience; bedsheets, blankets were provided; as a matter of fact, good food too was provided to us. The train was on time and there was no hassle reaching the destination on time. The staff was courteous. Toilets were clean. Train experience in India is a must for tourists from abroad; that is where real India is.
