A trial run will be held on Friday from Coimbatore Junction to Somanayackenpatti
In what appears to be a sign of a direct train between Coimbatore and Bengaluru materialising at last, the Railways on Wednesday brought two coaches of double decker Uday from Chennai.
These two coaches with a generator car will be taken on a trial run from Coimbatore to Somanayackenpatti near Jolarpet and will return to Coimbatore.
trial run will begin at 7.15 am on Friday from Coimbatore Junction.
The trial run is to check the roof clearance at stations, Over Head Traction and other clearances.
After the trial run, a report will be sent to Commissioner Rail Safety for his consent for commencing the services.
The two coaches with a locomotive and generator car reached Coimbatore around 11 a.m on Wednesday.
On completion of the trial run, the coaches would return to Chennai.
Uday or Utkrisht Double Decker AC Yatri Express Coaches for the Coimbatore - Bengaluru service are getting ready and are getting final touches at Integral Coach Factory (ICF) in Chennai. Railways is also exploring the possibility of running it as an over night train, sources said.
The Uday coaches are expected to have LED screen in each for dissemination of approaching/halting station info besides a public announcement system besides coffee and tea vending machines and the coach exterior will have a vinyl sheet finishing to give an aesthetic and elegant look.
Sources also said that the Uday coaches normally comes with heating chamber and refrigerator facilities for preserving the food brought from home. The train is also likely to have bio-toilets.

Who knows? The makeover might add feature of titling chairs, if they are considerate enough with this fact. Because we all can guess that the price is surely gonna be higher, with exclusive Suresh Prabhu Masala known as 'dynamic fare'. I don't think there is anything wrong with tvs if we will be paying high!
However, such facilities like tv, coffee machine are added to help Railways gather positive sentiment for their leader.

In my view, dynamic fare is the case of legalized loot. Such decisions are obviously, bound to create profits. But, look at what they did and said while doing it. Railway rolled out explanations on social media that only small passenger segment will be effected and those who can "pay" will pay. And then Railways smartly rolled it out in Humsafar and Tejas trains also. Apparently, Railways has shown its indifference towards middle class, a segment of population that is always ripped in any political decision, because they are considered as the ones "who can pay".
And frankly, do they care about trains running vacant as long as they are getting successful in making money? In fact, it is a good thing
for them if trains are running empty. They can show that "we have created seats as promised, passengers are not utilizing it".

No news after the trial from both SR and SWR. Probably both zones are waiting for ICF to roll out the much awaited Uday coaches.
