Special classes on Indian trains

Yesterday we walked through Churchgate station in Mumbai, and noticed the railways have some interesting classes of trains. Of course there is the first class section, but this compartment was in worse shape than any train in Holland (or even China) would ever be.

But they also have a compartments only for women, so they won’t be crushed between the men on the often totally overloaded trains.

The front part of the train was for luggage, this part had no seats – just a dirty floor without any windows. To my surprise this part was not only for luggage, however, but also specially reserved for handicapped and cancer patients…
