INDORE: After Kochuveli, Indore-Yesvantpur and Nizamuddin Express trains, the Western Railways is going to introduce high quality German-made Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches in Avantika Express.
Officials at Indore Railway Station said that it will be effective in the last week of December.
They had earlier planned to introduce these coaches in this train, but it could not materialise due to the limited supply of coaches. Now officials with Ratlam Division of the Western Railways, apparently after the Indore-Patna tragedy, have decided to introduce these high quality coaches in this train.
said that LHB coaches have inbuilt safety and comfort features that are comparable to world class standards. They are designed to attain a speed of up to 160kmph and the cost of manufacturing each LHB coach is said to be around Rs2.5 crore. "There were reports of rattling or jerks in some of the old coaches of Avantika express train. It has been decided to introduce LHB rake in this train soon. The rake is expected to be delivered in December, after which it will be installed on this train. These coaches are safer and proven to provide a smooth ride on long formation rakes running at high speed," a senior railway official said.
The officials were not sure about the composition of the train. The train will have at least 22 LHB coaches including first class AC, AC 2-tier, AC 3-tier, sleeper class and general second class coaches, they said.
