Based upon the Rail Budget Feb 24th 2010 presented by Mamata Banarjee, Double Decker Train building started at the Rail Coach Factory (RCF) of Kapurthala,in Punjab,boasts of developing a prototype of the country’s first air conditioned double decker coach.The officials of the factory claim that the double-decker coach has been completed in a record time of eight months.

The first double Decker train would be seen running on track by end of this year. The new coach with pleasing green-yellow color scheme has all the features and the comforts of a Shatabdi coach.
A totally new coach shell design capable of running at a speed of 160 kmph was developed by RCF engineers in tandem with Research Design and Standard Organisation (RDSO) within a short span of just nine months.

Currently, 128 passengers can be seated as compared with 78 passengers in Shatabdi chair cars, thus increasing the capacity by almost 70 per cent.The new coach shell design is capable of running at a speed of 160 kilometer/hour, and it will be 1.5 feet higher than the normal coach and will have a seating capacity of about 130.

To save upon space, it was decided to use End-On-Generation configuration where power for train lighting and air-conditioning is supplied by two power cars, attached at both ends of the train.
