...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 -
...
more...
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]
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 !
(inputs also welcomed)

I guess Karnavati 4 Ac coaches should be replaced with 4 DD coaches....it would increase the capacity in AC Chair Car of Karnavati...Full train is LHB
Or one more idea is to convert Seating DD coach to Sleeper DD coaches(like in foreign countries where they run full AC DD trains of sleeper class) and run such full DD trains with Sleeper class....:)

MAS-SBC is doing good.

DD sleeper k lie bahot R&D zarurat hogi. waise hi DD ka r&D band hai.

Fact ye h ki NWR bhi support m nhi h iss merge ke... Tabhi 2018 se file pending padi h
Jaipur DD hit h isiliye usko iss merge ki zarurat nhi h.. But Lucknow DD survive nhi kar paa rhi h isiliye NER isko daily bhi karna chahta h and maintenance se bhi bachna chahta h

Travelled in CBE - SBC UDAY day before yesterday. Going by the cosmetic looks, UDAY is far better than DD, either exterior or interior. Seats are the same in both, uncomfortable.

Difference is very minute in both DD and Uday but Double decker is best.
Uday is just a copy of DD with some facilities.
