There are buses and private vehicles which connect short distance. Air carriers connect medium to long distances. However railways connect from small to medium to large distances. Railways are considered the best mode of transport in India due to several reasons. Firstly, they have extensive connectivity. There are local trains for daily people who commute on daily basis. There are small distance trains like Shatabdi which connect short distances. And then there are premium trains like Rajdhani, Duronto etc which connect medium to large distances. And as such railways is indeed the life line of common masses.

Earlier, you need to stand in long queue and get tickets from railways counter. However now you can get railway tickets online. You can visit railways website and get the tickets.
