Indian Railways is bracing up to adopt the Head on Generation (HOG) technology, which will help the fourth largest railway network in the world by size in multiple ways. Mentioning about the benefits of the new HOG system, Rajesh Agarwal, Railway Board Member, Rolling Stone, said the Railways plan to convert all Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches to HOG system by this December.
The decision to shift to LHB technology from the ICF was taken in 2017. All the new LHB coaches that are being manufactured are HOG compliant. The work includes modification in the electrical system of power cars and coaches.

The LSLRD will have a specially-designed cabin with six seats reserved for differently-abled people, an additional 31 seats for chair car travellers and extra luggage space, the officials said. Read more
