This is not the fancy Maharajas’ Express but the IC between Ranthambore and Jodhpur. We are traveling 3rd class EC (airco) for 8,5 hours during election/holiday times. Was it comfortable? No, not really. An experience? Yes, extremely. Most Indian travellers on this train and in this class just make themselves comfortable and sleep, eat or chat with each other. Would we do it again, probably yes but then we would at least book extra seats for our luggage so we have a bit more space to sit and work (there are electricty plugs on board).
