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)
Inter class abolished.
1967 > 3 Tier sleeping accommodation introduced in 3rd class, with wooden planks for berths without cushions.
> 2 Tier sleeping accommodation introduced with cushioned berths. 3 or 4 passengers would sit on the lower berth during the day time and one of them with reservation of sleeping accommodation (on payment of extra berth charges would occupy the upper berth at night (or during day time if he so wished). the other 2 or 3 pax would continue to remain seated at night on the lower berth (similar to the present day RAC system)
1969 > Introduction of Rajdhani Express with 2 types of classes viz. 1st AC and AC Chair Car. This was the birth of the AC Chair Car class.
> Abolition of 2 Tier sleeping accommodation
1972 > 2nd class abolished and 3rd class converted to 2nd class
> 3 Tier berths in trains were progressively equipped with cushions instead of wooden planks.
1979> Introduction of AC 2 Tier class
> Introduction of AC 3 Tier class
1988 > Introduction of Shatabdi Express and EC Class (1st Class AC Sitting)
>1992 Conversion of 2nd Class sleeping accommodation into a new class distinct from 2nd class called SLEEPER CLASS
There could be errors and omissions in the above sequence of events and I will request all members to add value to it and correct them wherever necessary.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
