Capacity of premier trains enhanced

Faced with an increasing number of passengers, the Railways have decided to enhance the capacity of its major trains, including premier ones like Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto, on select routes.

Additional coaches have been attached to the Rajdhani trains for Thiruvananthapuram, Chennai and Guwahati to clear the rush, a senior Northern Railway official said.

The capacity of the Bhopal and Lucknow Shatabdi services has been enhanced with the addition of more Chair Car coaches. Similarly, Jammu Tawi Duronto’s capacity has been enhanced with the addition of another sleeper coach.

Additional coaches will be attached to other trains like the Delhi-Udhampur Express, Amritsar-Saharsa Express and the Ambala-Muzzafarnagar Express. – PTI
