From Hampi we took a sleeper train to Bangalore. The sleeper trains are much cheaper than the AC classes and with no real differences, other than you don't have curtains to shut the world out. I think it's quite a novelty having white, westerners taking the sleeper trains though as everyone seems to stare as they pass you by.
