Air-conditioned double-decker coach are running on trials on the Delhi-Moradabad section a few months ago

But how are the working of these trains-Flying queen express is a completely double-decked train and running on th eElectrified line of Mumbai-Surat. but comfort level? We have to check that out. We earlier had them running in Brindavan Express in the late 80's and also in the Mumbai-Pune sector later removed because of inconvinience. Now it has been planned to re-introduce them. We have to check the comfort level from passenger point of view.

 

We can have a train from Whitefield,Devanhalli and Nelamangla to Mysore once the doubling gets over. Till then it can be better utilized on devanhalli route.

Not the same quality, consequently the cost works out many times cheaper
