This will be the fourth express train in the zone, after Mangalore Express, Pandian Express and Rockfort Express, to get LHB coaches.

CHENNAI: Passengers shuttling between Chennai and Thiruvananthapuram and other parts of Kerala can rejoice. The hugely popular Thiruvananthapuram Mail, a superfast train, will have German-make Linke-Hoffman-Busche (LHB) coaches from January 18, senior officials in Southern Railway have confirmed.
This will be the fourth express train in the zone, after Mangalore Express, Pandian Express and Rockfort Express, to get LHB coaches.
Sources in the zone say that they have a holding of around 250 LHB coaches. Two rakes of No 12623/12624 Chennai Central - Thiruvananthapuram - Chennai Central Mail trains will be converted into LHB stock from January 18.
The composition of Chennai Central - Thiruvananthapuram - Chennai Central Mail trains will be revised as: First Class AC-cum-AC 2-tier - 1, AC 2-tier - 1, AC 3-tier - 4, Sleeper Class - 11 & General Second Class - 3 coaches.
LHB coaches are equipped with better safety features as compared to the regular Integral Coach Factory (ICF) coaches. They don't pile up during accidents and are made of aluminium and hence are lighter and can be pulled faster by locomotives.
In addition, LHB coaches are also resistant to jerks and give a pleasant travelling experience. This will come as a relief to regular travellers on the train as it is a 17-hour journey.
Indian Railways is gradually phasing out ICF coaches replacing them with LHB coaches as per the recommendations of the Kakodkar committee report. Officials say lesser lives could have been lost in recent derailments if the committee report had been implemented earlier.
Towards this goal, coach-production companies like ICF in Chennai and Rail Coach Factory (RCF) in Kapurthala have already switched over to LHB-coach production in full-swing.

That'd be a temporary arrangement for the next 4 months post which they'd reduce seats in GN quota and resume TQ back to 34 (or more!). They'd never let go the TQ revenue of twenty 2A seats for good. ;)

34 is tough. Now it will be having just 1.5 2A. compared to previous 2.5
So it will be for sure below 25, even if they change

Transformation of a glamorous train to a genuine pain-Trivandrum Chennai Mail
This was an exceptionally glamorous a train in Kerala once the gauge conversion in Ernakulam Junction-Trivandrum Central sector and introduction of this train. (It is not clear which one, Quilon-Madras Central Mail or Trivandrum Central-Madrsa Egmore metre gauge Mail is the ancestor of this train). This had rake sharing arrangement with Trivandrum Cannanore Express and the control was with Trivandrum. It had clean coaches and used to run time. The train had a number 19/20 AT THAT TIME WHICH LATER BECAME 6319/6320. Subsequently, for some inexplicable reason the RSA was with Cheran Express and the control was shifted to Coimbatore and the numbers got changed to 6619/6620. After the 5 digi
...
more...
numbers came into force, it is not clear who is responsible for the train which looks like a waste dump beside a market in both directions. At any rate, that was sufferable due to speed and punctuality. Nowadays, that too is gone. It used to bypass Coimbatore junction earlier but that system too is altered. For no apparent reason, it loses considerable time to go inside Coimbatore and come out. It is unspeakably dirty in both directions and is perpetually late in either directions almost everyday. Choosy passengers have started opting for Chennai Central Alleppey 22639 to travel from Chennai to Ernakulam since the travel time is almost identical. The train thus is a like a glamour queen reduced to a street side beggar.

The timings of 12624 should be brought back to its earlier schedule (TVC 14.30 MAS 06.55). Nowadays people south of Ernakulam (via KTYM) have no ways to reach MAS early than to take chains. People of every part (ERS, CLT, PGT, CBE etc) have one train which reaches early and other train which reach late.. But the part after ERS dont have.. Cheran can be made to arrive MAS at the present mail slot and vice versa.
