Indian Railways has successfully completed the trial of new AC 3-Tier coaches. The coaches have been built to provide modern facilities to the passengers. The new AC 3-Tier coaches are designed in an innovative way to accommodate 83 passengers.
According to a Times of India report, the Railway Board has prepped a proposal to keep the fare less than the present three tier AC.
Lucknow-based research design and standards organisation (RDSO) and Kapurthlala coach factory have jointly developed the new AC 3-Tier coach.
The trial run started in the third week of February. Trial was conducted at 180 kmph in Kota - Sawai Madhopur section in loaded condition. The Ministry of Railways also shared a video clip of the coach oscillation trial. The coaches have been developed on Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) platform.
