Summer time rush: ER adds extra coaches to long-distance trains
Kolkata: In order to meet the heavy rush of passengers during the holiday season, the Eastern Railway has decided to add extra coaches in several trains.
ER will attach additional coaches to various long-distance trains during the period of April 16 to July 1.
Since people plan trips during summer vacations, trains have more passengers. The Eastern Railway plans to attach additional coaches so that people don't miss out on exploring new areas during holidays. The rush in trains is a huge challenge for families. Trains from several popular tourist destinations do not have seat availability and the waiting lists are longer during the holiday time. The additional couches will benefit travelers as they face a lot of inconvenience due to non-availability of seats.
