The trial run of chair car bogies under the model rail coach project was carried out from Habibganj railway station to Barkheda on Friday.
Terming it as a “common man’s train”, the engineers of Nishatpura rail coach factory said the coach is based on design of Shatabdi, but is a general coach. This is the first chair car train under the model rail coach project assigned to Nishatpura rail coach factory, which has been lent a modular look by remodelling old coaches from different zones of Indian railways. The train, which left Habibganj railway station at 9:30 am, had 15 general chair car coaches. No AC coach has been included in this rake.
