hey martin,

the train travelling hrs in around 30hrs.. but if you taking a first class AC ticket. i would suggest get a aeroplane ticket. it will save your time and its something around that much cost only. other than that.. its more fun to travel in train. speciall in second class where you can meet the locals.
