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.

CHENNAI: Passengers shuttling between Chennai and Thiruvananthapuram and other parts of Kerala can rejoice. The hugely popular Thiruvananthapuram Mail, a superfast train, will have German-make Linke-Hoffman-Busche (LHB) coaches from January 18, senior officials in Southern Railway have confirmed.
This will be the fourth express train in the zone, after Mangalore Express, Pandian Express and Rockfort Express, to get LHB coaches.

CHENNAI: Passengers shuttling between Chennai and Thiruvananthapuram and other parts of Kerala can rejoice. The hugely popular Thiruvananthapuram Mail, a superfast train, will have German-make Linke-Hoffman-Busche (LHB) coaches from January 18, senior officials in Southern Railway have confirmed.
This will be the fourth express train in the zone, after Mangalore Express, Pandian Express and Rockfort Express, to get LHB coaches.
Sources in the zone say that they have a holding of around 250 LHB coaches. Two rakes of No 12623/12624 Chennai Central - Thiruvananthapuram - Chennai Central Mail trains will be converted into LHB stock from January 18.
The composition of Chennai Central - Thiruvananthapuram - Chennai Central Mail trains will be revised as: First Class AC-cum-AC 2-tier - 1, AC 2-tier - 1, AC 3-tier - 4, Sleeper Class - 11 & General Second Class - 3 coaches.
LHB coaches are equipped with better safety features as compared to the regular Integral Coach Factory (ICF) coaches. They don't pile up during accidents and are made of aluminium and hence are lighter and can be pulled faster by locomotives.
In addition, LHB coaches are also resistant to jerks and give a pleasant travelling experience. This will come as a relief to regular travellers on the train as it is a 17-hour journey.
Indian Railways is gradually phasing out ICF coaches replacing them with LHB coaches as per the recommendations of the Kakodkar committee report. Officials say lesser lives could have been lost in recent derailments if the committee report had been implemented earlier.
Towards this goal, coach-production companies like ICF in Chennai and Rail Coach Factory (RCF) in Kapurthala have already switched over to LHB-coach production in full-swing.
