in a contemporary mode. In all, there are fourteen saloons, each equipped with four
twin-bedded chambers, with attached baths that have running hot and cold water and
showers. The modern conveniences have been thoughtfully provided, sofas to sink

furnishings,inbuilt wardrobes for the storage of one’s clothes and bags, and huge
plain glass windows to watch the countryside roll past.

get together, just sit watch the cities as they glide past outside the windows,
or enjoy a quiet cup of tea. An attached pantry with each saloon helps provide beverages
and refreshments to the accompaniment of soothing piped music.
There is the comfortable bar cum lounge where you can relax over your favourite
drink, burrow in a book or converse with fellow passengers. Attached to it are two
restaurant cars, Maharaja and Maharani respectively, with opulently draped curtains,
exquisitely crafted lights and table settings . Here accompanying chefs serve up
a delicious choice of Indian, including Rajasthani, Continental and even Chinese
cuisine that are a feast for the palate.
