longer, safer, and comfortable coaches of the new version of Prayagraj express are made of stainless steel. Moreover, the interiors would not be fitted with metallic fitting, considered as a major reason for injuries to the passengers after the mishap. The new interiors would be made of fiber.
Having the brail signage, for blind passengers, the air conditioner of new coaches of Prayagraj express will be far more effective as the train would have two power car which would run the AC's of the air-conditioned coaches.
The train would be having 22 coaches unlike the existing version which has 24 coaches. However, the proposal for two more sleeper coaches have been moved by the authorities. The seating capacity of the coaches would also be enhanced as new coaches of sleeper class would have 80 berths, an addition of 8 berth in each coaches, AC-III will also have 8 additional berth (72 from existing 64), AC-II will have 52 berth and AC-I will have 24 berths.
The coaches have been manufacture in the rail coach factory at Rai Bareilly and because of the lighter weight, they can run at a higher speed of upto 160 km/hr whereas it's existing speed is 110 km/hr. Along with the high speed, the new coaches will have more effective braking system; the coaches will have disk brakes as well.
Even on the high speed, the passengers would feel less jerk, both while stopping or starting and also while travelling.
The authorities have started the process for increasing the speed of the train upto 130 km/hr and the same could see the day of the light in the coming days.
Because of a decrease of two sleeper coaches in the new version, the total sitting capacity of sleeper coaches has come down by 64 berths despite the fact that these new sleeper coaches will have 8 more berths in each coaches.
The authorities have suggested that the passengers of sleeper coaches, travelling on or after December 18, should check the status of their reservation before starting their journey. "As the old coaches had 72 berths and there were 12 sleeper coaches, the total carrying capacity was 864 whereas now as we have 10 coaches (each having 80 berths) the total carrying capacity have come down to 800, a reduction of 64 seats", said railway PRO of Allahabad division, Sunil Kumar Gupta.
