"Nothing quite compares to travelling by train in India…"
Before it became the common man's transportation (with its own challenges!), the railways were the entitlement of royalty. They were grand and spelt power. The princes went on their state tours, their hunting trips and their honeymoons in their personal railways where the salons were as lavish as their palaces.

The good news is that you can still do it the royal way – it is a unique and privileged experience with pomp and show, red carpets and bands, being indulged and feted, and pampered by khidmatgars – your personal attendants – always at your beck and call. Enjoy the panorama of the Indian landscape and exotic stops to see the sights at leisure, private shopping tours or a spot of golf, maybe a spa at a hotel, only to return to the comfort and luxury of your train.
