    Default Yuva trains to have AC double decker coaches

    New Delhi, Oct 27 (PTI) Railways is planning to introduce AC double decker coaches in ''Yuva'' trains, which would cater to the young generation and run at 150 km per hour. The trains will be launched soon between Delhi-Kolkata and Mumbai-Delhi as a pilot project.

    The double decker coaches will be equipped with chair cars for seating arrangements like Shatabdi trains, a senior official in the Railway Ministry said. There will be a total of 108 seats in the coach and the entire double decker will be air conditioned.

    Being developed at Rail Coach factory in Kapurthala, the new AC double decker will be six inches taller than the existing ones running between Mumbai-Pune and Surat-Mumbai. It is being made fully AC to prevent dust entering the lower deck as it is at par with the platform, said the official.

    A prototype coach is being readied at Kapurthala and it is expected to be completed by January 26 next for a trial run on the tracks. "Currently a mail or express train is provided with 24 coaches and we cannot add more coaches considering the length of the platform.

    So we have to explore the vertical expansion and the double decker is the answer," said the official.MORE PTI ARU.
