This question is directly aimed at Sh Steven Ber.
Chair Car class is available on Shatabdi trains.
As well as on Garib Rath Expresses.

Where can we find a listing of all the other trains having this class of carriages?

Is there a chart in Trains at a Glance?

Any particular website?

Thanks

yes.
if you go to the indian railway site:
www.indianrail.gov.in
and list out the source and destination (that is in the "Trains bweteen imporatnt stations" link)
and select "All classes"
you will get the trains that have CC.

but im not Sh Steven Ber.

I can probibly get a full list, but I can't say where I'm getting it from. (It may take a week or so though, I'm very busy this week)

Why do you want it?

AC Chair Car is my favorite class of train travel.
But it is not available in all trains.
So I think its convenient to have the info compiled together in one place.

Here is a list of AC Chair cars out of New Delhi, with ticket price.
With summer starting now, this class of travel is preferable to Sleeper class, esp in day trains and even for overnight journeys.

For various destinatons from Delhi:

4095 HIMALYAN QUEEN NDLS 05.55 KLK 11.20 Rs 322
2055 DDN JANSHTBDI NDLS 15.25 DDN 21.10 Rs 380
2203 GARIB RATH EXP NDLS 14.05 ASR 20.15 Rs 301
2459 NDLSASR EXPRESS NDLS 13.40 ASR 21.25 Rs 445
2497 SHANE PUNJAB NDLS 06.50 ASR 14.15 Rs 445
2481 INTERCITY EXP NDLS 13.10 BTI 18.15 Rs 346
2354 RJPB GARIB RATH NZM 16.50 RJPB 06.30 Rs 481
2204 SHC GARIB RATH NDLS 11.10 LKO 18.30 Rs 322
2420 GOMTI EXPRESS NDLS 12.45 LKO 21.35 Rs 510

In my experience Chair Car is often with particularly cold AC, since you pay so much more. This info just for people who are cold fast (bring a sweater or woolen chaddar).

Not up-to-date, but mostly correct.

Indizen, please don't go to trouble to list the trains with CC, I really can get the info in minutes. (just a couple of e-mails)

I'd also be a bit wary of CC in the Garib Raths, the carriages have been re-designed to include more seats, and it looks too crowded, first reports also suggest it's too crampt, and often the Garib Rath journeys are too far for CC.
