How can I check train coach position and seat layout?
One can check coach position and seat layout of any train in Indian Railways by entering your desired train number or train code on the box above. List of coaches appear for your train which are arranged with respect to engine of the coach. One can select their allotted coach to know seat arrangement of that coach.
What if I don’t find my coach number on the list of coach position?
Indian Railways sometimes adds extra coach if the rush is more in trains. In such cases the extra coach is mostly added either towards the start of train or towards the end. However, it is always advisable to reach station beforehand, so that passengers can clarify such details at the station also, either from station inquiry window or from the local hawkers/coolies who are their at the platforms regularly.
Are all the coaches interlinked? What if I have to go to Pantry car?
Trains are usually interlinked but for some trains, one might not be allowed to enter other coaches (especially 1A and EC) class. Pantry car is usually placed in middle section of train so that it is easily accessible from all coaches. However, passengers are not allowed to enter pantry car too, and whatever they want to have, they need to order it remaining seated only.
Are coach position and seat map displayed are always correct?
Trainman displays coach position and seat map based on the information of previous history. However, sometimes these information changes last minute or without any prior notice, so it is always advisable to verify these information at the station beforehand. One should reach station at-least half an hour before train arrival time, so that they get enough time to verify platform number and train coach position and can reach at the desired place on time.
