Some people claim Double Decker coaches are rusting at the Rail museum siding of Howrah.
💠 Seen here, Double Decker coaches coming out of workshop after their scheduled overhauling. Rake of Vikramshila Exp was kept in reception line to get into workshop for POH.
[Note- Please don't comment here "This train should be reintroduced on that route" , "This train had bad timings"
, etc etc. There were numerous restrictions & regulations for this particular Extinct train. And the regulations are supposed to remain in future (if the rake re-introduced), unless engineering department & Passenger transport department uses their brain while planning]

Yes I feel the same, but however I haven't found any route in the last 7 years (I travelled in the train in 2012 and was heartbroken to see the empty coaches) where this train may make profit.

As of now since Yuva express is eliminated , it can be tried in HWH - NJP route . The TT should be the counterpart of NJP Shatabdi i.e. , leaving HWH at morning & returning by night. Only the thing is , Railway has to work it out properly in that way
