இதனையடுத்து சம்பவ இடத்திற்கு விரைந்த எழும்பூர் ரயில்வே போலீசார் வினோத்தை மீட்டு சிகிச்சைக்காக ராஜீவ்காந்தி அரசு மருத்துவமனைக்கு அனுப்பி வைத்தனர். ஆனால் மருத்துவமனைக்கு செல்லும் வழியிலேயே வினோத் பரிதாபமாக உயிரிழந்தார்.

CHENNAI: Southern Railway has announced that the Chennai Egmore-Tiruchirapalli-Chennai Egmore Cholan Express will get the high-quality German-technology make Linke Hoffman Busche coaches.
A release stated that Train No.16853/16854 will be converted to LHB rolling stock from February 16 from Chennai and February 17 from Tiruchirapalli. Already the Rockfort Express and Pandian Express on the section have LHB coaches. Thiruvananthapuram Mail and Mangalore Express are other trains with LHB coaches in the zone.

accident. They also give lesser jerks during travelling and hence passengers can have a comfortable journey.
They are made of aluminium and lighter-in-weight and hence can be pulled faster by locomotives. Indian Railways is gradually phasing out ICF-make coaches with LHB coaches as per the 2012 Kakodkar Committee report.
However, it costs Rs 2 crore to make an LHB coach as compared to Rs 75 lakh for a conventional ICF make coach.

Madurai: Pulling up the Railway for scaling down unreserved coaches, including one for women, in a popular express train bound for Chennai while introducing LHB coaches, Madras High Court Bench in Madurai on Wednesday directed authorities to file a report on November 7 on the matter.
The court, hearing a PIL by an advocate, directed Railways to submit its view on attaching more general coaches in the Madurai-Chennai Pandian Express train.Noting that ordinary passengers who cannot afford heavy bus fare were travelling in general compartments in trains and the railway service was meant for poor people, the court sought to know what they would do if the general compartments were removed under the pretext of introducing new coaches.

petitioner submitted that the train used to have 24 coaches. But from August 15 last, when the new modern LHB coaches, designed on German technology, were introduced, only 22 coaches were attached.
A women's coach and a general coach had been removed, which has affected the passengers travelling by general compartments, he said adding non-provision of women's coach was against railway rules.
Counsel who appeared for the Railway submitted that the LHB coaches were longer than the conventional coaches and only 22 coaches could be attached in proportion to the length of the platform.
If more coaches should be attached, the platform length should be extended, he said.
The court directed the railways to submit a report on the plea for attaching the two coaches.
