Check Train Coach Position
Train Coach Position FAQs
How can I check train coach position?
If you want to get the coach position and seat layout of a particular train, simply enter the train number or name of the desired train and press the "Get Coach Position" button. By doing so, the train coach position will be displayed on your device screen and it will be arranged subsequent to the engine according to the order. Passengers need to select their coach to get the seat layout of that coach.
Are coach position and seat layout displayed always correct?
The Indian train displays train coach position based on the previously available historical data. Therefore, sometimes this information changes without any prior notice, it happens because of overcrowding of trains running late on the station, so it is always advisable to recheck train status before commencing the journey. Passengers should reach the station at least half an hour before the train departure time so that they can get enough time to reconfirm the platform number and coach position from the railway inquiry counter.
Note: If you want to get the accurate position of your coach then you should check it after the chart is prepared.
What to do if I do not get my coach number while checking coach position?
During the peak of the season, the railway adds additional coaches in some trains to handle the rush. These coaches are added either next to the engine or at the end of coaches. Therefore, it is always advisable to arrive at the station before an hour, so that one can enquire about their train coach position either on the railway inquiry counter or on the blackboard which is there on almost every platform where long-distance trains halt or from the coolies who are present at the platforms on regular basis.
Are all the coaches interlinked and can I go to the pantry car?
Train coaches of most of the trains are usually interlinked and you can get through whichever coach you want but for some coaches (especially in 1A and EC) passengers are not allowed to enter. Generally, a pantry car is placed in between trains so that it will be easily accessible from all coaches. Although passengers are not allowed to enter the pantry car, they can ask for whatever they want by standing outside the door.
