लागत आती है एक एलएचबी कोच बनाने में
पुरी-अहमदाबाद एक्सप्रेस (18405) 14 जून से एलएचबी कोच के साथ दौड़गी तो 16 जून से अहमदाबाद-पुरी एक्सप्रेस में इन एलएचबी कोचों को लगाया जाएगा। इसी प्रकार, पुरी-हावड़ा एक्सप्रेस (12888) और हावड़ा-पुरी एक्सप्रेस (12887) ट्रेनों को एलएचबी कोच के साथ क्रमश: 18 और 19 जून से चलाया जाएगा। अभी इन गाड़ियों में एलएचबी कोचइस समय राजधानी एक्सप्रेस, पुरुषोत्तम एक्सप्रेस, दुरंतो एक्सप्रेस और शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस जैसी गाड़ियों में एलएचबी कोच लगाए गए हैं।
भुवनेश्वर एजेंसीट्रेनों की गति और यात्रियों की सुरक्षा बढ़ाने के लिए रेलवे उन्नत तकनीक वाले लिंक हॉफमैन बुश (एलएचबी) कोच लगा रहा है। इसकी शुरुआत 14 जून से पुरी-अहमदाबाद एक्सप्रेस से होगी।अभी इंटीग्रल कोच फैक्ट्री (आईसीएफ) के इस्तेमाल वाले डिब्बों से ट्रेनों की गति सीमित है। लेकिन रेलवे इन पारंपरिक कोचों के स्थान पर एलएचबी कोच लगाएगा जिससे ट्रेनों की गति काफी बढ़ जाएगी। साथ ही यात्रियों की सुरक्षा को भी पहले से अधिक मजबूत बनाया जा सकेगा। एलएचबी कोच एंटी टेलीस्कोपिक तकनीक से लैस हैं, जो किसी हादसे के समय कोचों के एक-दूसरे पर चढ़ने या पटरी से उतरने से रोकती है। रेलवे के अनुसार, ये कोच अधिक यात्रियों को ले जाने की क्षमता विकसित करने के हिसाब से बनाए गए हैं। वर्तमान में इस्तेमाल हो रहे सभी पारंपरिक कोच को चरणबद्ध तरीके से एलएचबी कोच में बदला जाएगा।40 नए यात्री डिब्बे जुड़ेंगे : यात्रियों की सुविधा के लिए नई साज-सज्जा और उन्नत सुविधा वाले करीब 40 हजार डिब्बे रेलवे के बेड़े में जुड़ेंगे। इस काम पर 8,000 करोड़ रुपये की लागत आने का अनुमान है। इन कोच में मजबूत कपलर लगाए जाएंगे ताकि दुर्घटना के समय बोगियों के पलटने का खतरा कम हो। यात्रियों के बैठने की व्यवस्था को बेहतर बनाया जाएगा और शौचालय भी आधुनिक होंगे। इस काम पर प्रति कोच 30 लाख रुपये तक खर्च आयेगा और अगले पांच साल में काम पूरा हो जाएगा। रेल मंत्रलय के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी ने बताया कि चालू वित्त वर्ष में 1,000 डिब्बे जोड़े जाएंगे। इसके अलावा सभी परंपरागत डिब्बों को सेंटर बफलर कपलर की सुरक्षा से लैस करने की तैयारी है।

This train is given low priority, hence low avg speed of 52/54kmph inspite of just 38 stops for 2000km run.
Giving LHB will not make much distance as it runs mostly on 100/110kmph route.
