You can look at this train RANIKHET EXP #15014 travel in 2A class. It leaves very early morning from Old Delhi station so might be difficult.

Other option is to fly from Delhi to Jaisalmer.

There is another train which does not run every day is Jammu Tawi - Jaisalmer exp no.14646 leaves at 11 AM but it does not run every day. It runs 4 days a week. You can look to book at class 1A or 2 A. -

Traveling solo in the train safe as in the once coch 64 plus people and in one cabine 8 person , take upper sleeper so you will be more comfortable.

>> Is it safe for a woman alone <<

Is is safe, and Indian Railways and its employees take their responsibilities very seriously.

>> and what is the best train to take? <<

You have just two choices. See the link: https://erail.in/trains-between-stations/jaisalmer-JSM/delhi-DLI

You might be influenced by travel times - a departure at 03:00 is hardly user-friendly; but the other train does not run 7 days.

To be honest, most Indian trains are much of a muchness. There is some difference in the class of travel - to understand that, read here: https://www.seat61.com/India.htm#classes

You need to book tickets way in advance. If this is your only train trip you should appoint an agent to make the booking for you. Sing out if you need a recommendation about this.

Flying this leg may suit you better if the route is on the flight schedule. It is not always - depends on your travel dates.

Look for SpiceJet SG124 and SpiceJet SG3758

Yes train is safe for woman, you can try with RANIKHET EXP #15014 (Night Train), but very long journey, I would suggest you book flight ticket for Delhi/Jaisalmer.

Thanks!!
