In the 1980s, an effort was made to introduce ordinary second class double decker chair cars for some busy inter-city routes. The experiment of introducing these coaches was not very successful mainly because the windows of the lower deck coaches were very low, virtually at platform level and the intake of dust was a nuisance. However, these coaches continue to run on the ‘Flying Ranee’ between Mumbai and Surat, a very popular train which has been running since 1906.
