Indian Railways is one of the most complex and widely extended railways network in the world. Indian Railways Trains in India run throughout the length and breadth of the country and connect even the farthest of the areas. Most of the people prefer to travel by train when it comes to travelling to long distances.
Train journeys are less expensive and more comfortable. For people who cannot afford to travel by flight, travelling by train is the next best option. The cost of tickets is quite economic. The only disadvantage while comparing with the flights is that the train journey is a little time consuming. But the whole journey is exciting and there is never a gloomy moment watching the real beauty of the nature and the various places. In fact in one of the Bollywood movies, the protagonist claims that if someone wishes to see the real India, he must travel in the second class compartment of an Indian Railways train with an unreserved ticket!
Another very interesting place is the Railway Station. Full of people! All the 365 days of the year you can see the maddening crowd of travellers hurriedly walking here and there to catch their train and board in their coaches. The sounds of the train whistles and horns can be heard everywhere. The lady making announcements about the arrival and departure of the trains is constantly buzzing into your ears. Vendors selling tea and coffee, and the aroma of samosas and sandwiches fill your mind with freshness.
If you are boarding the train in a smaller station, then finding out the train coach position is not a very difficult task. However, sometimes the vastly spread railway stations in India can be very confusing and puzzling. You will be required to find out your train among so many other trains. The second challenge is to locate your coach before boarding onto it. Doing the same amongst the pool of people running from one place to another in hurry, and the bunch of coolies walking around carrying heavy stuff on their heads shouting out loud is a big task in its own.
In the middle of all this turmoil, you will be carrying your own luggage and your family. Just imagine how you will be able to walk through all this and search for your coach. Without the information of the position of your coach, can you think of the difficulty you would face in the whole process of boarding the train? It will be a big headache for you and your family. Situation will be worse if any senior citizen is also travelling with you. With small children also the situation is unimaginable.
You need to depend upon the announcements made in the railway station continuously in Hindi, English and the local language, which would give you an idea about the platform on which the train will arrive. Sometimes, you might just miss hearing it properly because of the terrible noise all around you.
But finding out the position of the train coach position from engine is very difficult. Again, if the train is a smaller one, it is not a big problem. But if the train is like 20 or 25 coaches long, it will be very difficult to locate your train coach.
Some people are always stressed about the position of their coaches from the engine. This is the special provision for the ease and comfort of the senior citizens and family members, who do not want to run with their heavy baggage after the arrival of the train on the station. We will help you in finding out the running train coach position. Also, for those who are also very keen about the position of their seat inside the coach, this information is very convenient and easily accessible.
