While summer season is knocking at the door in India and it’s also the lean season for the Indian Luxury trains. Just to update the tourists who are planning a luxury train trip, I have come up with this brief post on the status and operating season of the luxury trains in India.
Almost all luxury trains complete their season by the end of the March except for the Palace on Wheels which continue to run in April too along with Maharajas’ Express and the Indian Maharaja with their select departures this month. Royal Rajasthan on Wheels, Golden Chariot and Deccan Odyssey have completed their season in March 2013.
