I would like to travel from New Delhi to Jalsaimer with overnight train alone. Is it safe for a woman alone and what is the best train to take?
Thank you very much in advance
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 is safe, and Indian Railways and its employees take their responsibilities very seriously.

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
