Indian Railways is planning to introduce double-decker trains on the Visakhapatnam-Vijayawada-Secunderabad and Visakhapatnam-Vijayawada-Tirupati routes soon.

The service will provide high speed internet access between Tollygunge and Dum Dum metro stations from June 15 this year.
With the Modi government's call for digital push, the Metro railways in Kolkata is preparing yet another gift for the city of joy. After being the first city to enjoy free Wi-Fi at some of its prime locations, commuters on the Kolkata Metro will now have access to free Wi-Fi at all the 17 metro stations.
At present the Kolkata Metro railway provides Wi-Fi only at the Park Street and Maidan stations. This new initiative is aimed at providing increased facilities and convenience to the passengers. The service will provide high speed internet access between Tollygunge and Dum Dum metro stations from June 15 this year.
ACCESS FREE WI-FI
Commuters will be able to access free Wi-Fi service in front of ticket counters and on platforms. But the service would not be available inside moving trains.
"The service was available at Park Street and Maidan at the moment. But from July 25, 17 stations from Dum Dum to Tollygunge will get free Wi-Fi facility," said Indrani Banerjee, spokesperson of the Metro railway. She also said mobile connectivity inside the tunnels is expected to be provided before this year's Durga Puja in early October.
The Kolkata Metro, country's oldest and the only underground metro system run-by the Indian Railways is also gearing up to provide commuters enhanced services. Apart from the internet facility, it is soon going to launch 22 more train services, shooting the number from 278 to 300. Metro services too will be available at an interval of six minutes on weekdays.
The Kolkata Metro is also expecting the delivery of 13 new air conditioned rakes from China starting from June next year to augment its services.
"We will get delivery of 13 air conditioned rakes starting from June, 2017. The rakes from Daliyan in China will have coaches with ultra-modern facilities," Banerjee added.

GENEVA (AP) — Capping a mammoth 17-year, $12 billion project, Switzerland has built the world's longest railway tunnel: The Gotthard Base Tunnel.
Here's a look at it and others among the longest railway tunnels in the world.

GOTTHARD BASE TUNNEL, Switzerland
The inauguration of the 57-kilometer (35.4-mile) Gotthard Base Tunnel through the Alps and central Switzerland drew the leaders of France, Germany and Italy for the celebration Wednesday. At its maximum point, the tunnel is more than 2.3 kilometers (1.4 miles) underground, deeper than any other rail tunnel. The 17-year project cost $12 billion but is expected to reap benefits across Europe for years, including faster travel between Italy and points north and less reliance on trucks that were polluting the Swiss Alps air.
SEIKAN TUNNEL, Japan
This tunnel in Japan reigned as the world's longest railway tunnel for nearly 30 years. It travels 53.9 kilometers (33.5 miles) under the Tsugaru Straits, linking the Japanese islands of Honshu and Hokkaido. While the Gotthard goes deepest underground, Seikan hits the lowest elevation for a tunnel — 240 meters (790 feet) below sea level.
CHANNEL TUNNEL, between Britain and France
More than 13,000 workers took over five years to complete this 50.5-kilometer (31.4-mile) undersea tunnel between Britain and France, which was inaugurated in May 1994. The Channel Tunnel runs as deep as 75 meters (250 feet) below sea level and had been Europe's longest tunnel until the Gotthard Base Tunnel came along.
LOETSCHBERG BASE TUNNEL, Switzerland
Inaugurated in 2007, the second-longest Swiss tunnel runs for 34.6 kilometers (21 miles) and is part of the same three-tunnel project in Switzerland as the Gotthard Base Tunnel to its east.
GUADARRAMA TUNNEL, Spain
This 28.4-kilometer (17.7-mile) tunnel in Spain was inaugurated in 2005 after about 32 months of construction. It links Madrid, the capital, with northwestern Spain.
