Cleartrips for trains :)

Check out for cleartrip, what you will notice there is bit surprising but same time encouraging too. Guess what ! Indian Railways is giving a stiff competition to the low cost airlines. Now side by side you can search which one is best for you. Yes ! cleartrip is out with its new train search pages (Cleartips Train beta), the first impression was good.

Now you don’t have to only depend upon IR website :)

Hi Alok,
But still, these guys have also not taken into consideration "The connecting trains" funda...

May be someone can focus on Connecting Trains funda, but a train from one place is not available to another :)

@himanshu - That’s true but Cleartrip is still in beta stage and we can expect something more in the near future from them.

BTW ! if I am not wrong IR too doesn't provide searching of 'connecting' trains.

and that IR site has some hundred pop ups all the time along with frequent server busy status. This is great idea. Train travelling is a fun experience over short distance.

It would be good is they ca fashion something along the www.Bahn.de site they have for Germany.

You guys will be happy to hear that the "connecting trains funda" is now a part of the Cleartrip train search with a host of other improvements:
