Enjoy playing with Deccan Queen | Playing Cards - Set of 2 while travelling in the iconic DQ train with deluxe train service. The history of the train includes the tradition of playing Rummy and Teen Patti by its passionate travellers as the train travels between Pune & Mumbai. An extension of the tradition of playing cards in Mumbai’s Local Trains where space is carved out in the crowded locals by using a brief case of one of its passengers and a game of cards is dealt out and played by fellow passenger groups, using the brief case as a “table”.

CELEBRATING The DECCAN QUEEN | Dakkhan Ki Rani
The Deccan Queen, the iconic train that runs between Mumbai & Pune winding its way up the scenic Khandala Ghat passing through 28 tunnels to reach Pune! A train that has been, for the last 92 years an institution for many replete with its associated memories!
A train that started its journey as a Europeans only train in 1930 with many firsts – first fully electric train, first vestibular train and first to have a pantry car! Opened to Indians in 1940, it has since been the lifeline of Pune-Mumbai-Pune travel and the “business connect” between the two cities!
Central Railway recently launched the NEW! Deccan Queen. Inspired by the history and royalty of Pune and its monuments, National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad designed the new interiors and exterior to embody the colours and symbols of Royalty, Harmony, Imperium and Solace! The design embodies an understated imperium of the queen, in a powerful yet understated form with hints of dynamic elements in a linear flow, embellished with details from our heritage.
