Having just read about outlets on trains, made me wonder if I can charge my Kodak camera M32 using 220. It's 4 years old, and I can't see the 110/220 on the camera. The directions are also in French and Italian which leads me to believe they were sold in Europe. I charged it off of my laptop last time in India, but this time I have a tablet that may or may not charge it. If anyone has any info please let me know. Thank you.

I'll be in India for a while and expect to take my fair share of long train rides. I will be bringing a laptop, and I'd like to use it on the train to pass the time. However, it will obviously require a power supply after a couple hours.

I want to know, what kind of availability of power is there for use on trains? I plan to mainly use sleeper cars for the long journeys.

I tried Googling, but I get nothing except for information on train engines.

Are there any direct bus services (private or public) from Delhi to Srinagar (kashmir)? I checked J&k bus services but the site make me confused. While it shows the fare it declines to show the schedules.
If anyone has done this route recently or has confirmed information, it will be highly helpful
I am looking for schedules (departure/arrival timings)fares and the boarding points in Delhi.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
