Deccan Queen and Sinhagad Express have been relaunched with LHB coaches. However, due to the reduction of general coaches of these two trains, ticket-holders without reservation are facing great inconvenience.


As the Deccan Queen had only one general compartment, it was difficult to even stand in this compartment. Hence, ticket-holders do not have any other option but to travel in reserved coaches resulting in the reserved ticket holders having to bear the brunt of it, leading to disputes among passengers.


Sinhagad Express had 19 coaches till March 2020. After that, till 21st March 2022, there were 16 coaches. The present train has 14 coaches, and two general coaches have been reduced. One general bogie of Deccan Queen Express has been reduced. Both these trains are mainly for the convenience of daily commuters. Due to the reduction of general coaches (bogies) of both these trains, the journey of unreserved and reserved ticket passengers is becoming difficult.
