Train #12952 3A - AC 3-Tier Sleeper, Indian Railways, Mar 6, 2019
My wife and I booked 2A sleeper class from New Delhi (NDLS) to Mumbai (MMCT) on the highly recommended Rajdhani express train #12952. Our first time in India, we were pretty inexperienced Indian train travel, though we had read up on the online trip advisories on what to expect. We were happy with the trip. It was a bit chaotic in the stations, but my wife said it was not nearly as crazy as Grand Central station in New York. People were helpful in directing us to our sleeper car. Sleeping cots were adequate with clean bedding, though privacy was just curtains at each cot, with other passengers (non tourists) in close proximity. The train was not spotless, but it was adequately clean for us. Bedding was fresh, in packages, floors were mopped and sterilized, and onboard staff was friendly and helpful. Toilets were adequately clean. Certainly not to standards in the USA, but better than many developing countries. The train was on time and ran smooth. The AC was adequate. We enjoyed the experience mingling with the local travelers, all who were nice. Bring earplugs to get a better sleep (there was low key chatter and some crying babies at night) and bring your own toilet paper (the restrooms sometimes run out). Meals were tasty. A great experience, though we might try 1st class AC next time to see if there is more privacy. I would rate the experience as great, though we had expected the accommodations to be newer.

How to get from Delhi to Mumbai by Train

Taking a train to get from Delhi to Mumbai is a safe, fast, and scenic option to travel the country. On certain routes, there are multiple train departures per day every 10 to 15 minutes. This is typical for intercity travel, while for long distance train routes there are fewer scheduled departures – plan ahead to choose the one that fits your itinerary best.

For long distance train journeys, we recommend reserving your tickets at least a few days ahead of your travel date. Buying train tickets via our online booking system will allow you to choose and reserve the best Delhi to Mumbai tickets.

Buying your tickets online will help you secure the trip on the selected date and avoid queuing at the station.. When travelling on weekends and holidays it is recommended to reserve tickets much earlier due to a much higher demand.

How long does it take to get from Delhi to Mumbai by Train?

Travel time from Delhi to Mumbai is estimated to be about 14h 47m. Trains ensure the fastest time to travel by land. As normally there is no congestion, the speed of travel is more or less constant and stops at train stations are rather short, train is almost always one of the quickest and safest ways to get from Delhi and Mumbai.

The most important thing that may affect train travel time is the type of train. Ordinary trains travel at a speed of about 40 mph or 65 km/h to 65 mph or 105 km/h. Some intercity trains with shorter distances between stations run slower than 40 mph. Even with these low speeds, it can still be faster than commuting by car, bus or taxi.

The speed of express trains can reach up to 100 mph or 160 km/h. Modern high-speed trains can run at speeds exceeding 250 mph or 400 km/h.

These speeds of travel together with relatively short stops between stations can greatly shorten the duration of your trip.

Best-Rated Companies for this Route

Unlike buses or taxis which have numerous companies offering their services, train service is usually offered by just one major company in each country. As railway service requires a large amount of infrastructure, most railway companies are government-owned and are a part of the national transport system.

One of the best advantages of travelling by train is that railway stations are often conveniently located within or very near major cities and urban areas. Immediately on arrival to their destination, travellers find themselves in close proximity to important facilities like hotels, supermarkets, and hospitals.

If you travel with a lot of bags and luggage, trains are your best option. Luggage weight limits on trains are rather flexible and allow you to carry multiple bags with you.

Special or luxury trains feature sufficient legroom which allows you to stretch your legs and relax. In comfort and space these train seats can be compared to business class airplane seats.

Similar to buses, trains can provide a variety of amenities to make your travel more comfortable and enjoyable. Modern trains have WIFI service, a snack counter and a drinking bar. Onboard toilets can be a life saver for travellers with queasy stomachs.

Lastly, unlike buses and other overland means of transport, trains are very rarely involved in accidents.
