Facilities Onboard

To ensure a comfortable and pleasant journey on the train, well-equipped facilities in the carriage are highly demanded. Let’s have a look at what facilities are equipped onboard the ordinary trains in order to satisfy passengers’ needs.


Passengers are demanded to take the seat or berth in their tickets, except for those people who bought a standing-room ticket. Numbers of seats and berths are presented on the wall of the carriage. Hard seats are actually padded seats with less room and comfort but are acceptable for short distance and more efficient than sleepers. Soft seats are commonly seen at some short distance trains which are clean and quiet. Hard sleepers are quite popular for overnight trains. There are sis berths in each hard-sleep compartment with upper, middle and lower berths. Softer sleeper berths are much wider than harder sleepers as there are only four berths on every soft-sleeper compartment. But they are cleaner and more expensive. Luxury softer sleeper berths are most comfortable but most expensive aomng all the seats.

There are overhead luggage racks in hard seats and soft seat carriages. And under-seat areas are also available for luggage. These luggage racks usually measure a size of 50cm wide and 50-60cm high to accommodate a maximum 28” trolley case. Luggage rack for hard sleeper berths isseated above the aisle.

Also there are trolleys with meals for sale at mealtime by the attendants. Besides, a small trolley selling snacks, drinks, magazine and other small items will go back and forth through the carriage aisle by the attendants.
