LADIES SPECIAL TRAINS ON NR COMPLETES SIX YEARS OF SERVICE

  As a mass transport organization, Northern Railway has been highly sensitive to the needs of the women workforce, which commutes daily to the NCR for their work. For this purpose special coaches have been traditionally earmarked for women in several trains in the past. To cater to the ever growing population of women travelers and in keeping with their safety concerns, the Railway has been running exclusive ‘Ladies Special Trains’ in urban and suburban areas of Delhi for several years now. Presently there are 3 pairs of Ladies Specials plying over Delhi Division:

64449/64450 New Delhi - Ghaziabad Jn. EMU Train consisting of 6 coaches running five days a week (Monday - Friday)
64469/64470 New Delhi - Panipat - New Delhi Ladies Special EMU Train consisting of 6 coaches running five days a week (Monday - Friday)
64491/64492 New Delhi - Palwal MEMU Train consisting of 8 coaches running six days a week (Monday - Saturday)
These Trains are so popular that the lady passengers recently celebrated with much fanfare the 6th anniversary of the initiation of the Palwal - New Delhi train by decorating it with flowers and balloons and cutting a birthday cake at old Faridabad station.
