New Delhi: The Indian Railways set to repaint all Mail/Express trains in a new colour scheme – beige & brown. The freshly-painted Delhi-Pathankot Express with 16 coaches will be the first train to be rolled out, by this month-end, with the new colour scheme developed by the in-house team of Northern Railway.

More Information:

  • A senior Railway official said,”A complete makeover of coaches was long overdue and the new colour scheme was applied in trains after it was finally approved by Railways Minister Piyush Goyal.”
  • It was in the 1990s that the new colour scheme of dark blue was introduced for Mail/Express coaches, replacing the brick red colour which was in use for decades.
  • Now the Railways has quite a task at hand – repainting about 30,000 coaches in the new colour scheme.
  • The official said,”The change of colour is part of the Railways’ efforts to make passengers’ experience a pleasant one.”
  • Besides the exterior, steps have been taken to improve the interiors of the coaches with additional facilities, he further said.
  • The official added,”The replacement of all toilets with bio-toilets, providing mobile chargers at each berth, comfortable seats are some of the changes undertaken in trains. In fact, a provision has also been activated to solicit passengers’ response and suggestions for improving service.”
