Train Delays in India, how severe?

Jump to last reply

I am going to take train # 19665 from Khajuraho and stop in Agra, Jaipur, and Udaipur in February. I heard that during January and February there is insane amounts of fog in northern India. I am avoiding Delhi altogether because during my trip I will have already seen Mumbai and Kolkata and dont need to see another huge Indian city (maybe next time). ...and I've heard the fog is bad there, but is also bad in all of northern india.

I am worried about the delays that people talk about. I'm giving myself TWICE the posted amount on indian railways's website and giving myself ample time, but I've heard that the delays during the winter sometimes can be DAYS?! I have a flight back to the states I have to catch in Mumbai, and I'm just wondering how severe the delays will be during this time.
