Do you miss the slight jerks n jolts felt in CBC enabled Non-LHB Coaches that LHB coaches hardly provide, especially when a train gains its MPS after 4 to 5 stations? :)

Do you find an AC coach of your train in which you are traveling to be moving with loud wheel sounds when your train is at MPS during night time? The coach can be an ICF or LHB coach. Kindly answer in detail since I didn't prefer making it a Poll blog :)

Oh my... is it safe for running a train at speeds like 110-115 Kmph that too during winter nights? :-p

If IR wants to give us a nostalgia feeling then they should tell CLW or DLW to design a modern steam loco just like UK had made one in 2008 that was capable of 140+ Kmph MPS. But flat wheels may be a factor for coach derailment, what say? (like flat tyres in road vehicles, especially buses) !

Both LHB and ICF SL coaches. ICF in 12657 and LHB in 12292. But its too good to listen to that music.

never heard of an accident due to them :P
they probably impact only ride quality, as I have seen these flat wheel rakes quite frequently, with both passenger and freights trundling along comfortably.

What difference did you notice between the sounds levels of LHB versus Non-LHB Coaches in their Main Gate - Vestibule - Toilet Area ?
Both coaches make equal amount of noise when train is at MPS or changing tracks0%0
LHB coaches make comparatively less noise outside the AC Carriage100%11
Non-LHB Coaches make comparatively less noise outside the AC Carriage0%0
None of the above. I want to comment on this poll via blogging0%0
