Train Journeys To Get Smoother: Indian Railways To Recall All LHB Coaches To Fix Issue Of Sudden Jerks

According to Railway Board Chairman Ashwani Lohani, all LHB (Linke Hofmann Busch) coaches currently in use by the Indian Railways, will be recalled to fix a certain technical issue. It caused the trains to jerk when they restarted after every stop.

“There were complaints of jerks at stop/start, and we have found a solution. On the advice of the Research Designs & Standards Organisation, we are going to change the draft gear which was causing the jerks. All the LHB coaches will be recalled and fitted with balanced draft gear to rectify the defect,” Mr. Lohani told The Hindu.
