...THE AC DOUBLE DECKER...
.
Indian Railways launched much hyped a new category of trains i.e. "AC Double Decker" on various routes in 2011 during Ms. Mamta Banerjee rail ministry
.
WR Ahmedabad - Mumbai Central Double Decker Express
WCR Bhopal – Indore Double Decker Express [RSA]
SR Chennai - Bangalore Double Decker Express
SCR Guntur - Kacheguda Double Decker Express [RSA] [to be DEFUNCT]
ECR Habibganj - Indore Junction Double Decker Express [RSA]
...
Read more...
ER Howrah – Dhanbad Double Decker Express [DEFUNCT]
NWR Jaipur - Delhi Sarai Rohilla Double Decker Express
SCR Kacheguda - Tirupati Double Decker Express [RSA] [to be DEFUNCT]
NER Lucknow - Anand Vihar Double Decker Express
.
Of these many couldn't b a success probably due to :-
*Less Leg Room (Legs seems to be crushed)
*Width of seats is less (fat people cant travel comfortably)
*Luggage Problem
*Lack of PC on longer routes/ journey (AC pax dont prefer to get down to buy RAIL NEER/soft drinks etc )
*(Inputs welcomed)
.
Not to forget
*heavy investment and manpower in R&D
*RDSO trials and certificate
*CRS trails
*curve issues
*pf manipulation
.
The POINT is dont run DDs for d sake of running tag "DOUBLE DECKER" in the country.
its a waste exercise if its not ran in conducive way or optimum utilized.
.
But v hav witnessed certain DDs which r successful such as JP-DEE, ADI-BCT, MAS-SBC, LJN-ANVT but lets us clear that dese have become successful dont bcoz of DOUBLE DECKER concept but bcoz of route demanding a AC train. not to forget JP-DEE has 2 shat EC coaches.
.
another point
----------------
consider newly inaugurated LJN-ANVT DD which has 10 CC
so lets compare
10x120=1200 seats
15*78=1170 seats
What m trying to say is a icf shat can b easily ran with 15coaches carrying almost same no. of passengers
.
there r HBJ - INDB -BPL - INDB - HBJ DD which jst hav 3 coaches whereas it was said DD wud clear rush
what a joke !
instead of above DD, a simple ICE consisting of GEN, 2S, CC would do boon for passengers
.
Therefore, I wud suggest to run ICF shats without catering charges on wherever routes required.
.
Now dese existing DD sud b ran only on existing shat routes only.
I have heard manufacturing of DD has been stopped.
.
Last but not d least, some positive scope.
DDs wud b a assest where it can replace 24coacher or max coaches train with same comfort and everything....

Feedbacks plz !

I'm working out on the diagrams of dd and lhb 3ac coach and will shortly come up with the coach dimension, sear seat dimensions and full diagram
DD coaches can be turned into sleeper coaches with two tier berth arrangement. I'm working out on the diagrams of dd and lhb 3ac coach and will shortly come up with the coach dimension, seat dimensions and full diagram. Have a rough diagram ready and according to it 80 -84 sleeper berth double decker sleeper express can be made with spare coaches and can be run on shorter routes like bct-adi duronto, lko-ndls ac exp, etc.

But a separate eog is required if a dd coach is attached to a normal train. But this concept is good.

Let me take points one by one:
1-Leg seems to be crushed-Believe me its still comfortable than Yuva express and a little movement or change of posture can help it.
2-Width of seats is less(Fat people can't travel)- This seems to be a personal problem. I am fat & gets uncomfortable in Alto but that doesn't mean Maruti shouldn't manufacture Alto. I will look forward to Tata Safari & so such people should go for shatabdi.
3) Luggage problem- It's comparatively less and can be manageable. You should be glad that unlike airlines you don't have 15 kg bar.
4) Lack of pantry car- Sir it would take minor adjustments to tackle
...

this. Ac people get ready to pay extra & IR will send the Rail Neer guy inside the train. Agree.
So my point is it's more than a tag that IR is running DD so that many people travel at the expense of little comfort. And with UP being the 5th most populous country in the world, the 12583/84 will still find enough takers.
Also two EC coaches in JP DD shows that people want AC trains but there are other poor people like me who would like a lower cost air conditioned travel.
Indb bpl dd is exception so I will discuss it later.
And your idea of bringing back icf shat coaches will put IR on back track. I would like to plead members to stay optimistic that in near future, we'll have high speed corridors so DD will be hauled at mps making the journey in much lesser time.
Thank You.

JP DEE JP DD is successfull because of very poor state of Jaipur Delhi NH 8. Volvos running between Delhi Jaipur are almost empty and take 7-8 hours for journey. DD takes 4hrs between Delhi (Delhi Can't. South Delhi) and Jaipur. Fare of Volvo much higher than DD. This is in sharp contrast to private Volvos and DD running between Bhopal and Indore.

Yes but instead of EC coaches if they had the option of attaching extra DD coaches, it will still find enough takers.

No, was running with C9-C10 sometime back after the coaches initially sent for AOH returned back to MAS. Now the remaining have been sent for AOH. It will run with 7/8 coaches till all the 14 coaches(incl spare) are done with AOH.

A Day when we had a lot plans in mind, ultimately ended up going to WFD, quite a few surprises were spotted that day, but one occurrence which almost happened was the crossing of the Duronto express from HWH and the Double Decker bound for Chennai. They did cross at WFD station but we as fate would have it were standing at the outer. A Near perfect crossing crossing which was missed by a couple of mins. Please enjoy the video.
