Evolution towards LHB: Chennai - Trivandrum Mail creates History~~ Inaugural run of 12623 Chennai Central - Thiruvananthapuram Central Superfast Mail with brand new LHB coaches ~~

Tripunithura railway station, Ernakulam, Kerala.
Date & Time: 19th January 2017 07:30AM
Loco: Royapuram (RPM) WAP7 30391
.
Linke Hoffman Busch (LHB) Coaches are designed by Alstom Germany and manufactured at Kapurthala Coach Factory and is used in high speed trains such as Rajdhani and Shatabdi.
Integral Coach Factory (ICF) coaches are designed and manufactured by Indian Railways and are the more conventional ones, seen in most express trains.
.
LHB coaches have an average speed of 160 kmph and a top speed of 200 kmph as compared to an average speed of 70 kmph and a top speed of 140 kmph in ICF coaches.
.
LHB coaches are more safer as compared to ICF coaches. LHB coaches are anti-telescopic and does not turn turtle in case of a derailment. These coaches are made of stainless steel as compared to mild steel (which is a less ductile material and also heavier then stainless steel) in ICF coaches, this increases its shock bearing capacity in case of a mishap. The coupling system in LHB reduces the relative motion between two coaches and also prevents one coaches rising on the other in case of an mishap.

One of the reasons that TN didn't undergo changes was because GT was already there in the exact same route with a lot of stoppages. So demand for TN stoppages could be easily put down.
-
But look at KK, it was not just connecting state capital to national capital, it also connected all those enroute stations to national capital because they didn't have any other train (like GT) before introduction of KK. Look at a small town like Adoni, if KK had been treated like TN, as an "exclusive super special"
...

train, would it have connection to New Delhi. Even today for Adoni that is the only train to New Delhi.
-
But KK's greatness was it was for a long time the only train to connect the backward Hyderbad-Karnatak region to their state capital. It is also one of the few trains with an average speed of more than 60 Km/Hr with 30 stoppages, that too on single diesel line for large parts of its route.

Dakshin is for Telangana like GT is for TN
Then I don't know why the Telangana Superfast Express which was started along with TN n KK was given more halts than TN n it's speed was awesome those days
Politicians made it the way it shouldn't be
Telangana should be speeded up removing few stops
