Sorry to be posting another Shivalik Express seating question.

Has any body been on that train recently and say where seats C3 -16WS, 17 will be?
I have searched this and other forums and nothing conclusive - no one seems to have a good idea how the seating is done.
All I can see from pics on the net is 16 is a Side Single window seat - I THINK
Does WS indicate side window? and would a 2x2 window be denoted differently? someone who has travelled recently should be able to say this
I am willing to book another ticket if I could get 2 seats side by side assured.

(why would IR give me such a weird split seating when there are still 60 odd seats available)

This might have some information for you.

WS means a window seat. You could try switching seats.

Thank you...I guess I am stuck with trying to adjust on spot in Kalka....
Did anyone actually succeed to book the Shivalik Queen coupe? the one with Rs.799 for a couple.
I am away from the country and won't be able to go upto any IR counter to book.
Or since I am travelling in mid-Jan, is there any chance to book it on spot then?

Seat layout in Shivalik

Hi,

I am traveling in the Shivalik Delux from Kalka to Shimla along with my wife on our honeymoon trip. The seats we got is C3 16WS, 17.
Can anyone tell me what is the seating layout in Shivalik.
I know that WS is a window seat, but is 16 a single window seat or window seat of the double seat?
We want to sit adjacent to each other, so I want to know if 16 and 17 are part of the 2x2 seat?

thanks,
Nilanjan

there is 90% chance you will be seated together. look at it this way - if 16 is single window & 17+18 is double window, with 18 as window, this would happen only if 18WS was already allotted to someone else (who booked alone). however, such a person would have got the single window instead!!! so, relax!

This logic is not correct. Someone with a family of 3 might want to book 2 windows..Anyways, what I'm looking for is some definite information.
Its surprising that so many ppl travel in this train, but we still do not have any thread containing the seat numbering layout correctly.. At least if some of the travelers could share their seat numbers, e.g. window/non-window seat numbers, then I could derive the numbering and share my result here..

Nilanjan

Thanks Bappa.
Based on the info, I think the seating arrangement might be as attached.
It would be great if someone can confirm this.

I don't think that above structure is right. Because I get windows seat at seat no: 12 & 15 in Coach C5.
