Both lower and upper berths on AC-2 Tier coaches have an excellent LED reading light (similar to that found in aircraft) - see photo. This makes it great for nighttime reading without disturbing others. It's a vast improvement over the 'shutter' lamps found on the non-LHB coaches which function better as room heaters!
The LHB coaches also seem to be a little more square in lateral cross section permitting more room on the upper berth as the photo shows.

These Improved lightning systems are available in LHB Coaches only because the normal ICF coaches are still using the shutter light systems. A good move by Indian Railways.

LED's emit less heat than normal sodium vapor lamps and its not a fault with IR or shutter lamps.
I agree on the part that they are better designed now.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
