Ya, LHB means decrease in overall capacity of the train and the biggest victim of this process are the poor people who travel in General Coaches bcoz when a 24 coach ICF train is given 22 coaches LHB the the no. of UR coaches definitely gets slashed.

Bro hog concept is approx 20 + years old ..yet its in testing mode..
In 24 coacher icf too 2 are slr so tge only drawback is u cant have ladies and Phd seats ..
Lets have a look .
For icf 24 coaches ..
for normal purpose - 22
Lets have 4 general coaches ..
13 sleeper coaches @ 936 seats
3 Third ac coaches @ 192
1 second AC coach @48
1 first Ac coach @ 22 seats
Total :1198 accomodation
For 22 coach lhb
Used for normal purpose - 20
Lets have 3 general coaches
12 sleeper coaches @ 936 seats.
3 Third ac coaches @ 216 seats
1 second ac coaches @ 52 seats
1 first ac coach @ 24
Total ......1228
So sir difference is there..

This is especially true at Mumbai Central which has limited 24 coach platforms. If the train was operating out of Bandra or Dadar (WR), it would not be difficult to accommodate additional coaches as they are designed to accommodate longer trains & then the limiting factor would be engine power & availability of spare coaches.

Platform Length is the most prominent reason behind not running 24 coaches LHB rake trains because most of the Platforms of India even A1 category stations also can't accommodate a 24 coach LHB rake.

Conversion to LHB -
If one SL coach is removed, still no. of seats available are more or less same.
For the AC classes, there is augmentation in number of seats.
But the one who suffers is the general class. If one general is removed from a heavily patronized train, that means lesser space available and hence lesser no
of people travelling in it - which creates a lot of menace.

Or how long the travelling public take to destroy it ?? If Mahanama Express is a benchmark of how we treat Railway property, then I am willing to bet... it won't be long.

Railway board chairman, Mr. A.K Mittal is the brain behind such things. Even in past during Rail minister Bansal's tenure he'd mooted Premium Trains which later got converted into Suvidha name & now that same Suvidha type fares are been forced upon Rajdhani, Duronto & Shatabdi trains.

A flight for tomorrow from Mumbai to Delhi is available for INR 3327/-. Why in anyone right mind will a person pay more to travel by train ??
