Indian Railways to launch special double-decker overnight AC trains on high-demand routes

This July, Indian Railways is planning to launch a special double-decker, AC train service for overnight journeys on popular routes.

Christened as the Utkrisht Double-Decker AC Yatri Express, or Uday Express, the train will only have comfortable reclining chairs as against the general practice of sleeper berths. Equipped with hot food and beverage vending machines, LCD television screens, and wi-fi enabled headphones, each coach will have a capacity of 120 people.

Talking about the fare, it would be lower than that of the 3AC class in regular mail and express trains, even as the amenities provided would be better in comparison.

The coaches will also have bio-toilets, and the interiors would sport a modern look.
