    I will be taking an overnight train ride from Old Delhi to Bangalore on 3 Feb, and I was just wondering if I need to take my sleeping bag or blankets for overnight journey or it is available in the train. I know my question is basic and very silly, but your answer will be really appreciated.

    If you are planning to travel by Non AC Sleeper then Yes, you must carry your sleeping bag or a warm blanket but if you are traveling in 2Tier AC, 3Tier AC or First Class then there is no need to carry your sleeping bag as you will get it in the train (without any additional cost). Every passenger of AC class gets two bedsheets, one pillow and one blanket on the berth itself.

    Do they provide clean and hygienic blankets or it is second hand stuff which keeps rotating.

    You always get clean and fresh bed-sheets and blankets wrapped in brown paper. If you are too much particular about things, then prefer carrying your own blanket/sleeping bag.

    If you are a clean freak like me then I suggest you take your own sleeping bag, it would be better than taking a dirty blanket.
