Indian Railways’ Howrah-Anand Vihar bi-weekly Express gets swanky! Piyush Goyal-led Indian Railways, in a bid to provide comfortable travel experience to passengers, has taken a noteworthy step! Now, instead of the conventional ICF (Integral Coach Factory) design coaches, Train number 12323 / 12324 Howrah-Anand Vihar bi-weekly Express will run with LHB (Linke Hofmann Busch) rake with effect from 13 August 2019 from Howrah station in West Bengal and with effect from 15 August 2019 from Anand Vihar station in Delhi. The newly upgraded Howrah-Anand Vihar Bbi-weekly Express will have a total of 22 LHB coaches including air-conditioned coaches, sleeper class coaches and general class coaches.
Currently, the national transporter is replacing all conventional ICF-design coaches with LHB coaches. Since the modernization of trains is a continuous process, Indian Railways is carrying out the replacement work in a phased manner. From the financial year 2018-19, the production units of Indian Railways are only manufacturing LHB coaches. Read More
