Proposal pending with Railway Board The Southern Railway has sent a proposal to the Railway Board for replacing the conventional coaches with Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches of German technology for the prestigious Train No. 12671/12672 Nilgairi Express (also known as Blue Mountain). The proposal is pending with the Railway Board for quite some time.
The Southern Railway had sought around 300 LHB coaches from the Railway Board for the entire zone, the sources said.
The Salem division is facing flak from passengers due to severe jolt whenever the loco pilots apply brake
Any reason why does the train 12671 and 12672 does not stop at JTJ and 12673 does not stop at KPD (but 12674 stops).
No they do not have battery or self generation mechanism
The Slip service is pretty much going to be withdrawn and entrie rack could go MTP soon since PF extension works are in place..

LHB Coaches does not have battery, they get power from generator.
