Moscow: The first double decker train in India was introduced in year 2011 which traveled between Dhanbad and Howrah railway stations. After that many double storey trains have been started. Somehow they have failed to attract the railway users.

Picture below shows a typical double deck train in India.

The train above looks beautiful and a bit of luxury is expected inside. But this is not the case. The seats are congested, the galleries too compact, and seats are unbelievably uncomfortable. On top of it these trains are end to end train, without any stoppages, and this makes the journey even more uncomfortable.

Now if you are thinking that this problem exist in India only, then you are wrong. Most double decker trains of world have the same problem.

But there is one double decker train which is an exception to this. Recently a new train is started between Moscow and Saint Petersberg, which has marvelous interior design. Have look at the picture below.
