Where did the diagram come from?

Is there a correct version?

All the numbers are wrong.

PLEASE IGNORE THE FOLLOWING, I have to add it here so that I can get a url to add it to another longer thread, it's a joke by the way.

Tried to compile on my own. Am yet to travel in a HA Coach so this is just based on inputs of the travellers.
What could be the correct version as perceived by you?

The lower numbered inside berth is always the window seat and lower berth, the lower numbered side berth is always towards the lower numbers and the lower berth.

Sir,
In this case, the numbering is not wrong. Just the positions has been misplaced. Also the picture uploaded by me indicates the nature of the berths; i.e. lower, upper, side lower, side upper and so on.

Your diagrams are great, and believe me, I know how hard those diagrams are to do, it took me months to do all my diagrams, and about 6 weeks into it, I realised I could make them better, but had to start all over again, very frustrating.

But if someone looked at your diagram, they would be convinced that 2A berths 2, 4, 6, 8.....were window seats.

I've no descriptions on my diagrams, I knew it would be too complex, so I done a separate description diagram (it took about 10 attempts before I got I was reasonably happy with), all my diagrams are locked away inside another thread, I really should do a new thread containing all the diagrams, maybe I'll do that when I get home from work.

If you look it from that angle, and I now place the number 2 and the rest of it below; it can again so appear that 1,4,7,10,13 and so on are now Upper Berths and 2,4,8,10 are Lower Berths.

This is why the colours have been well explained with a lil' above.

I had this word file created a long time back. It looked a bit congested and hence though of creating a new one.
The following are the layouts of LHB Coaches.

I have to be honest here.............

I feel for you, you've spent so long trying to take boring diagrams and make them more interesting and informative, but the problem is, you've based them all on incorrect Indian railways diagrams, and all your diagrams are therefore wrong.

The person who done the original Indian Railways diagrams has a lot to answer for, and I doubt the person ever entered a carriage, my diagrams are based on over 60,000km on Indian trains, and I double and tripple checked all the seat/berth numbers on different trains, now they're stuck in my head and I can tell anyone where they'll be in a carriage.

Trust my diagrams, they're correct.

Looked at it Sir. Its great. But still cannot figure out where I have gone wrong.
PS:- My diagrams are purely based on the seating arrangement. I did not try to bring in the location of the doors, windows, luggage storage space and other minute details.
