Do we have tracks that can withstand 200km/hr running LHB coaches? If not then what's the benefit of developing 200 km/he LHB coaches. Current 180 capable coaches can't even run at their potential speed bcoz of fragile P-way and here Railways is working on 200 capable coaches!! This what we call uttered nonsense.
