The conventional ICF coaches will only run on slower trains and not superfast express trains.
The Railway Ministry seems to be in no hurry to let heads roll following Sunday’s accident, as per the outcome of a special meeting of the Railway Board on Monday. Instead, there will be in-house operational changes. For example, the Safety Directorate will now be involved in proactive auditing of operations, instead of being the passive data analyst that it is now.
The conventional ICF coaches will only run on slower trains and not superfast express trains. Production
of the relatively modern Linke Hoffman Busch coaches will be upped, but that will not mean phasing out the ICF coaches anytime soon.
On why there was no fixing of responsibility for the tragedy yet, the dispensation was reportedly of the view that a probe by the Commissioner of Railway Safety and another independent forensic probe, as promised by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to Parliament on Monday, would give a better picture.
The board has zeroed in on two technical possibilities that could have caused the accident— it was either a rail fracture, not uncommon in winter nights, or a severe mechanical malfunction in the train. Accordingly, the frequency of detecting faults in tracks with ultrasonic devices will be increased.
Information such as passengers complaining about unusual sounds from the train are all available with the board, but the board will wait for the probe outcome.

But still the zones are more interested in running LHB special and not alloting these coaches to the trains which runs jam packed throughout the year.
Some zones are pilling up heap of LHB coaches like that in Gorakhpur, Patna rather than utilizing them.

Just for fun. All trains in Mgs-Cnb section except130 mps trains should continue running with ICF only as avg speed is below 30kmph.

Base less decisions!! Why befooling people!!
Today superfast as well as the normal express trains run at same MPS, which is normally 110 kmph (or less in case of speed restriction). So what difference it will make with respect to safety??
About a decade or 2 ago there used to be special speed (called A-special) for the real SF trains like TN/AP/Kerala, while they ran at 110 kmph while other express and some other superfast trains on same route used to run at 100 kmph speed. Today all are 110kmph.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
