Indian railway is a very huge network, which is spread over the whole country and it consists of Northern Railways, Western Railways, Eastern Railways, Central Railways and Southern Railways. All these regions are connected with one other in an organised manner and the frequency of trains across the country is quite high. A large number of trains run on a daily basis. There are trains for very long routes as well as short routes. Dedicated compartments are there for every class and they are general, sleeper, chair car, 3-tier AC, and 2-tier AC classes of compartments suiting the pocket of different people. The schedules of these trains can be known with the help of the train timetable available online as well as in the format of hard copies.
