There is another train on Fridays, Ananya Express, which departs 18:50 and arrives 03:30 (8 hours and 40 mins).
You can drive as well, but it would be nice to break the long drive in between. See Shahpura Bagh, I find it very beautiful. It is kinda midway. Or see Bundi.
An interesting article about Shahpura Bagh here:
The train is more comfort and drive bit tiring but fast and mostly on time , and the train are mostly get late.
As Suggested the Train takes more time and the Gwalior Origin train gets delayed most of the time
The Road Travel is Excelllent highway and max would take 6 hrs with a half an hour enroute stop

"The Road Travel is Excelllent highway and max would take 6 hrs with a half an hour enroute stop"
Do note that most tour operators/travel agent drivers for foreign visitors will rarely drive faster than 80 kmph even though its safe to drive much faster with no traffic in sight on 6 lane highways. All the taxi's that I have used, the drivers told me that they were under strict orders not to drive over 80km. Its another story when the same drivers have guest/clients who reside in India.
I strongly recommend a stop over at the chittorgarh fort ( 2 hours at least). Would be quite a long day driving from Jaipur to Udaipur for overseas guest.
Now one has the added advantage of using the chittorgarh bye pass if you do not want to or have already visited the impressive chittorgarh fort. A year ago, before the completion of the chittor byepass one lost considerable time driving through traffic in chittorgarh. The byepass is such a relief.
As Deepa suggested, a convienient & lovely stop over between Jaipur and Udaipur is shahpura bagh which is about 225 km from Jaipur or Udaipur, a four hour driving time at max speed of 80 kmph. One has to turn left off the 4-6 lane highway at Bijainagar or Gulabpura (coming from Jaipur) then its 45km to shahpura.
From Udaipur one has to turn right few km after Bhilwara, then its 40 km. Shahpura is rural and hidden India at its best. No one will ask for money, in the old bazaar or market, no shopkeeper tried to sell their products, people are friendly, and dress traditionally..
