Commuters in West Bengal enjoyed a ride in the country's first air-conditioned double-decker train on Monday.

The double-level stainless steel coaches have been introduced to cater to the heavy rush of travelers on popular routes, offering air-conditioned travel at a lower cost.
The train has several safety features such as fire retardant upholstery on the seats, as well as a crashworthy design.
The train has 10 coaches that include eight double-deckers and two power cars.
It can carry 128 passengers in comparison to 78 in chair-car carriages that can be seen on most trains.
The train can run at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour.
