THE RAILWAYS’ new AC-III tier compartment will be rolled out middle of November with a slew of changes, including a signature colour scheme, CCTV cameras in the aisles, and a tea and coffee vending machine in each coach.
And that’s not all, a senior rail ministry official told The Indian Express. The new features include:
– A GPS-based passenger information system above each door, a fire-and-smoke detector, and automatic room-freshener dispensers.
– An airline-like light bar with numbers indicating upper, lower and middle berths, which will replace the stencilled numbering on the walls.
– Gel coating in the toilet walls to make them “graffiti proof”.
– Curtains for side berths as well as in the aisles, which are currently available in higher classes only.
The new coaches will initially be deployed on the all-AC-III tier Humsafar service, which is tentatively scheduled to start operating between Delhi and Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh. The Rail Coach Factory in Rae Bareli, Uttar Pradesh has designed the service’s new coaches to be a part of four trains now — a set of coaches for a fifth train is in production and will be rolled out later.
