History of Classes of Accommodation in IR
Circa 1960 when I was 10 years old, I undertook my first train journey unaccompanied by any adult, travelling from Howrah to Chennai. Since then, I have been an avid rail fan. What follows is an attempt to highlight in chronological order the sequence of introduction/abolition of various classes of accommodation in IR.
1956 > IR had 5 classes, AC, Ist Class, 2nd Class, Inter Class and 3rd Class (with no sleeping accommodation)
