Nov 24 2016 (16:17)   Avantika Express to have Linke hofmann busch coaches

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.

Jul 18 2016 (14:19)   When a coach went missing at Chennai Central

Chennai: Sunday was yet another day where Southern Railway's poor passenger-friendliness was in full display in two separate incidents at Chennai Central and on the Chennai Beach-Velachery MRTS section.
At Central, Mangalore Express started two hours later than its scheduled time of 5pm because at 4.30pm around 80 passengers who had booked tickets on the train 'discovered' that S12, a second sleeper coach, in which they had been allotted seats, was not attached to the train.
Initially, the zone tried to pin blame on the mechanical department saying the coach was found to
be 'sick' at the last minute. But later, it was found that the commercial department had erred by clearing the waiting-list for an additional coach. This caused huge confusion at the station. The passengers were made to run from pillar to post by railway officials who initially offered them alternate accommodation in Mangalore Mail scheduled to depart at 8.20pm.
However, passengers objected to this as they had made reservations three months in advance. Railway staff on the spot said there were heated arguments. The issue was resolved when a spare coach was attached to the train, leading to a two-hour delay.
On the MRTS section, commuters had to bear the brunt as services were unavailable till 5.30pm. The zone, in a press note, had already announced a line block on the route from 11am to 3pm to facilitate engineering works.
During the work, a welding technician, Muthuvel, was injured after a rail panel fell on his leg injuring ghim. He was rushed to the Perambur railway hospital where his condition is stable, said a railway spokesperson. This caused the two-hour additional delay on the section because of which commuters vented their anger by calling railway officials.

A clear case of lack of proper communication & co-ordination amongst various departments of railways.
As soon as it is found that a coach, for which passengers have been booked in advance has not been attached, the first step should be to arrange for a spare coach as soon as possible so that the passengers are not panicked/ harassed and train is not delayed.
Under such circumstances, the first reaction of railway employees of should be to show sensibility for solving the immediate problem before the common public, instead of beginning
blame game. After problem is solved, steps like fixing of responsibilities, taking corrective steps to eliminate such errors in future etc need to be taken.
