Had a question about carrying large luggage in executive class on the Bhopal Shatabdi. We (2 adults and a 2 year old) will be travelling ndls-bpl in Dec. We'll have at least 3 large suitcases and a baby stroller which will not fit on the rack above. What are our options for taking this luggage on the train?
thanks in advance...

I have not travelled in the Ex Class of Bhopal Shatabdi simce it started having LHB coaches. There is extra space between the the last row and the back wall, where largish suitcases can fill in. Similar slots are available where ever table seats are there. Also the luggage rack is not that small

Sandy, thanks for the info. Yes our suitcases are right at the size-limit and weight-wise well within the 70kg/pp limit. I'm trying to find out if there is any place we can keep them if they don't fit on they overhead rack (and I'm quite sure they wouldn't).
Sudhir, thanks for the tip about space behind the seats in CC, I had also seen those pics while searching on google. But couldn't find any relevant info about the EC cabin. Hopefully, someone here has direct knowledge about the EC cabin in this regard.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@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,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
