INDORE: After Kochuveli, Indore-Yesvantpur and Nizamuddin Express trains, the Western Railways is going to introduce high quality German-made Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches in Avantika Express.
Officials at Indore Railway Station said that it will be effective in the last week of December.
They had earlier planned to introduce these coaches in this train, but it could not materialise due to the limited supply of coaches. Now officials with Ratlam Division of the Western Railways, apparently after the Indore-Patna tragedy, have decided to introduce these high quality coaches in this train.
