It was a 3.5 hour train ride from Delhi to Agra. It’s not fast but was comfortable and there were no issues at all during the trip. Only thing is we could only book a sleeper seat even though it was the middle of the day but it was fine.

I booked my Delhi-Agra Cantt train the night before our trip and then realised that you usually need 24 hours to get a confirmation. I messaged 12go.Asia to ask them to confirm my booking urgently as we were travelling at 8:10 the next morning. They replied within minutes and we got the tickets immediately. Thanks so much!
