People accused the railway
The location of these coaches has also been decided by the Railways thoughtfully. The convenience and safety of the passengers is also kept in mind while arranging different classes of coaches in the train. But people on Twitter alleged that the railways put general coaches in the front or back of the train so that poor passengers suffer the most in case of an accident. However, the Railways denied his allegations outright and said that according to the established rules of train operation, the location of each compartment is determined. The class of the compartment does not matter in this.
Railways told the reason for putting back and forth
According to the railway official, the general coaches of the train are more crowded than the sleeper and AC coaches. General coaches carry a large number of passengers boarding and alighting from each station. That’s why by placing general compartment at the front and rear of any train, the crowd of passengers gets divided equally. If this is not done, there will be a huge crowd of people in the middle of the station and the entire system of the railway station will collapse.
It also helps in making balance
The balance of the train is also maintained by moving the general coaches back and forth. The general coaches of any train are the most crowded, so if the general coaches are in the middle, the balance of the entire train will be disturbed due to the excess load in the middle. Due to this, there will be problem in board-dboard also. Due to the general compartment being in the middle, along with the seating arrangement, the rest of the arrangements will also be scattered. In such a situation, goods and passengers will not be able to go in both the directions. That’s why general coaches are placed at both the corners for the convenience of the passengers.
