Train from Agra to Sawai Madhopur

I'm thinking of taking the following trains from Agra to Sawai Madhopur in late December.

* Chattisgarh Exp #8237 AGC 16:10 – Mathura MTJ 17:05

* Kranti RJDHN #2954 MTJ 18:40 – SWM 20:35

Does this sound ok ?

I'm also concerned about the safari booking situation. Would appreciate it if someone posted on this forum when advance bookings become possible again.

Drive to Bharatpur and take the train from there. You can even spend the night in Bharatpur and see the surreal dawn mist and the birds.

Thanks Deepa & Sunil. Driving to Bharatpur is not an option unfortunately.

Does my choice of trains raise any red flags, such as transfer time too short, Mathura is not a good transfer station, or arriving too late or anything else ?

The Chattisgarh Exp runs on time mostly I see, so the connection should be no problem.

Hi

Regarding Safari Booking, the Best Advise would be to be in touch with your Hotel, Else if u have boked through some tour operator than be in touch with him to get it organised rather on depending on online booking

If you can backtrack to Mathura you can certainly drive forward to Bharatpur.

Thanks, All.

Deepa, after you mentioned it yesterday I looked up Bharatpur and it does seem close enough to go by Taxi. I didn't want to drive there myself. Shall look into this in greater detail. Thanks for presenting that option.

I'm taking the train to Agra that same morning. If I were to take a car to Bharatpur, would I be able to keep my bags at the Agra station even though I won't have a continuing train ticket from Agra ?

If I can't keep the bags at the station, is there any other place in Agra to keep my bags until evening ?

Sorry for the confusion.

My original question was about going from Agra to Sawai Madhopur, but I'm only spending a day in Agra. I'll be arriving in Agra early morning & then leaving in the evening. It was the suggestion about going to SWM by taking the road to Bharatpur that made me post the follow up question about the bags. My understanding is that I'll need to produce an onwards train tkt for the station to hold the bags.
