Rae Bareli factory produces record new coachesRAE BAREILI, Uttar Pradesh: The Modern Coach Factory (MCF) here has produced a record number of 368 Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches in April to July (FY 2018-19), which is its best ever output in the first four months in any financial year.

The LHB coaches, designed for increasing the train speed, are the new generation passenger coaches of the Indian Railways that have been developed by Linke-Hofmann-Busch of Germany. In comparison to first four months’ out-turn of FY 2017-18, which was 185 coaches, it is almost double in the corresponding period in the current fiscal, MCF General Manager Rajesh Agrawal said in a press release.

This is remarkable that the total production of the MCF for the first four months of the last four fiscal was 397 (output of the 16 months in total), whereas 368 coaches have been manufactured in the current fiscal’s first four months,” the press release said, terming it as a “record outturn in the history of MCF”. As compared to Integral Coach Factory (ICF) design coaches, the LHB design coaches are lighter in weight.

Not only that, they also have higher carrying capacity as well as higher speed potential and have better safety features. The LHB coaches also have anti-climbing features, so that in case of a collision, the coaches do not climb on top of each other. PTI
