My friends decided to go to Udaipur and the task of booking the tickets was entrusted on me.
As an avid Rail fan i wanted to travel in a Meter Gauge train as it would be my first time.So i booked the tickets in 19944 Ahmedabad Udaipur MG express without my friends knowledge.When they got to know that the travel time is double than that of bus,they started scolding me why did you book in the train.
Nevertheless they had no option but to come as tickets were already booked.
the train started they started making fun regarding the speed of the train.
I was getting angry but i was outnumbered
9-1 so i kept quiet.
And then things started to change when sun started shining and the scenery which my friends saw left them dumb struck.
They started praising me that 'you did the right thing by booking in the train'.
And now in the office also they are recommending others to go by train :-)
Enjoy the video for now as i am not able to upload the photos.

I was really surprised to see this train very well maintained.
The bathroom was cleaner than some of the BG trains and also the compartment was clean.
Didn't face any shortage of water also.
