The air-conditioned (AC) local train inaugurated by the Western Railway (WR) will soon have barricades between general coaches and coaches reserved for ladies. The WR has planned to introduce this on the lines of the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro corridor.As the coaches of the AC local train are interconnected, the WR said that it may install barricades to help commuters in identifying coaches reserved for ladies. Currently, coaches for ladies and seats earmarked for senior citizens and divyangs are different from the arrangement in the non-AC local trains. The first and 12th coaches at the Churchgate end are earmarked as ladies coaches and seven seats in the second and 11th coach at the Churchgate end are earmarked for senior citizens, and fourth and seventh coach from Churchgate end for divyangs.A K Gupta, General Manager, Western Railway, said, “We are constantly getting feedback for the recently launched AC local train, and a decision will be taken on a particular that has maximum feedback. One of it is that we may install Metro train like barricades for ladies coaches.”The WR has also said that they are are planning to have sun blinders on the windows of the AC local. DNA had reported on Thursday that the railway officials spoke to commuters travelling inside the AC local who shared that the sunlight filtering in was an issue as it warmed up the atmosphere inside the train.The AC train is currently being operated on a trial period between Churchgate and Borivli.
