The GL quota of 12075 seems to have got curtailed to SRR; earlier GL quota extended upto AWY. Now booking from TCR & AWY are falling in RL quota.
So getting tickets during weekend to travel between ERS & TVC has become really tough! Surprisingly lots of tickets available from SRR to TVC, on the same date.

An informative release from CR; Long live the 'Queen'!!
Deccan Queen– 87th Birthday
The introduction of ‘’Deccan Queen’’ between the two premier cities of Maharashtra o­n 1st June 1930 was a major landmark in the history of the Great Indian Peninsula Railway, the forerunner of the Central Railway. This was the first deluxe train introduced o­n the railway to serve 2 important cities of the region and was aptly named after Pune, which is also known as ‘’QueenofDeccan’’ (‘’Dakkhan ki Rani’’).
the train was introduced with 2 rakes of 7 coaches each o­ne of which was painted in silver with scarlet mouldings and the other with royal blue with gold lines. The under frames of the coaches of the original rakes were built in England while the coach bodies were built in the Matunga Workshop of the GIP Railway.
The Deccan Queen, initially, had o­nly first class and second class accommodation. First class was abolished o­n 1st January 1949 and second class was redesigned as first class, which continued up to June 1955 when third class was introduced o­n this train for the first time. This was later re-designated as second class from April 1974 o­nwards. The coaches of the original rakes were replaced in 1966 by anti-telescopic steel bodied integral coaches built by Integral Coach Factory, Perambur. These coaches incorporated improved design of bogies for better riding comfort and also improvements in the interior furnishings and fittings. The number of coaches in the rake was also increased to 12 from the original 7 coaches providing additional accommodation. Over the year the number of coaches in the train has been increased to the present level of 17 coaches.
From its inception, apart from providing high standards of comfort to the passengers, the train has witnessed various improvement such as introduction, for the first time in India, of coaches with roller bearings, replacement of end o­n generation coaches with self generating coaches with 110 volts system and introduction of first and second class chair cars providing increased accommodation to passengers. The distinctive colour scheme of cream and oxford blue with red band above the window level has been recently adopted as the colour scheme for this train.
With the ever-growing aspirations of the travelling public for better amenities, improved standards of comfort and better quality of service, it was considered necessary to give a complete facelift to theDeccanQueen.
The rake was changed in 1995 with the following special features:
* All newly manufactured or about a year old, air brake coaches.
* The 5 first class chair car in the old rake have been replaced by 5 ACchair cars providing an additional seating capacity of 65 in a dust-free environment. Also the 9-second class chair cars provide additional seating capacity of 120 seats compared to the old coaches. Thus, new rake provides a total seating capacity of 1417 as against 1232 seats intheold rake i.e. an increase of 15%.
* The dining car offers table service for 32 passengers and has modern pantry facilities such as microwave oven, deep freezer and toaster. Thedining car is also tastefully furnished with cushioned chairs and carpet.
The history of Deccan Queen (Dakkhan ki Rani) is literally a tale of two cities. The public of both the cities are happy with the impeccable record of “right time start” and “arrival” of Deccan Queen. Over the last 80 years of its colourful history, the train has grown from a mere medium of transportation between two cities into an institution binding generation of intensely loyal passengers.
The management systems of Deccan Queen (2123 Dn / 2124 Up) have been assessed by International Services Ltd. and found to comply with the requirements of ISO 9001-2000 under the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand in November 2003.
At Present Deccan Queen (12123/12124) runs with 17 coaches including 4 AC chair car, o­ne Buffet Car, 10 second class chair car and two second class cum brake vans.
