The train experience was an usual one. Nothing unique about it. You must bag the tickets 30 days in advance. The train journey is of 18 hours which becomes a little hectic after a certain point of time. Try and book a ticket an AC compartment. The food facilities are good. Try and go in a group which will overall increase the entertainment quotient.
Traveling is quite long and boring. Carry laptop to kill time otherwise it become too difficult to travel. Try making new friend as it really helps. In fact you can also talk to your friends if you don't mind spending as your cell phone is on roaming. Making new friends helps to know new culture. Food at stations is better than pantry. Private parcel walahs sell idlies for INR 150. Do not be fooled and always try new recipes. Do carry tablets.
