In pursuance of the railway board's instruction to beef up amenities for passengers, South Central Railway is set to replace conventional coaches of mail, express and superfast trains with German-based Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches. The railways have not yet set a deadline for the replacement of the conventional coaches that are currently being used in the zone.
"The process of replacement might take some time as we shall have to depend on the procurement of new LHB coaches manufactured at the rail Coach Factory, Kapurthala and Integral Coach Factory, Chennai. Since it is a central government decision, we hope that the coaches will roll out in this zone within lesser time," said a railway official.
new coaches will augment the capacity of carrying more passengers as each of it has 23.54 meter length and 3.24 meter width. The seats are ergonomically designed much to the comfort of passengers, modular toilets with handfree taps, automating IC sliding doors, lights over individual seats, GPS based passenger system, diffused LED lighting, special exterior painting with anti-graffiti coating and last but not the least, high speed potential.
Trial runs of the LHB coaches have already begun in the zone with seven trains, Ajmer-Hyderabad Meenakshi express, Vijayawada-Dharmavaram express, Secunderabad-Vijayawada intercity express, Hundry express, Bidar-Hyderabad intercity express, Hyderabad-Sirpur Kaghaznagar intercity express and Rayalaseema express.
On December 25, the railways have also added one such cutting-edge coach, 'Anubhati' to Secunderabad-Pune Shatabdi express and the passengers who book tickets for this particular coach have to shell out 1.2 times higher than the executive class, according to sources. Other charges like reservation fee, superfast surcharge and GST are levied on the passengers separately.

    @all: This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
