Indian Railways’ AC First Class Cabin (on the Island Express)

Indian Railways’ AC First Class Cabin (on the Island Express)

This is how the interiors of an AC First Class cabin on an Indian (Railways) train looks like. A cabin can seat/sleep four people as opposed to a coupe which is for two people only. Both feature lockable doors ensuring complete privacy along with wardrobes etc. This cabin is from the 16525/6 Kanyakumari – Bangalore – Kanyakumari Island Express. The Island got AC First Class albeit only half a coach (the other half of the coach is AC 2 tier) for the first time in its history from September 01 2014 and predictably is sold out the year round, being the most preferred train from Bangalore to Kerala. It has two cabins and one coupe. The berths are a meter wide and the cabin is squeaking clean. This is the old type ICF coach with steel frames. The new LHB coaches feature aluminium frames and larger windows which make them more airy and pleasant. But this is not bad either. Note the curtain rods.
