introduces Train Search

My favorite travel site has come up with yet another feature. Train search. Now I have alternatives to irctc and indianrail.

Try it here.

You cant book the tickets just now. You can just see a list of stations the train would go through.

What does it mean for cleartrip?
1. They move beyond just air fares (and occasion hotels) and go a step closer to being a complete travel solution provider.
2. Get more traffic (of people interested in trains).
3. More conversions from train travelers. If cleartrip could introduce another widget right next to the train search results and show the traveler that air travel is real cheap, bookings rate would shoot up. And I can bet, this feature is on its way.

Currently, apart from IRCTC, offers trains. But they also are limited to rail tours. They don't have a listing of stations (the way Cleartrip has). After all the hoopla about train bookings, looks like Cleartrip has emerged the winner. Yet again.

Keep watching. The online travel operator war is just beginning to start.
