IR never said that more than 1 coach will not derail. It says that 1 coach will not crash/climb on to another coach. Had it been ICF, there would have been too many casualties. LHB is much safer.

UBL was part of SCR before SWR was formed. Hence UBL retained 73XX - 7 for SCR and 3 for UBL for express while 27XX - 2 for SF and 7 for SCR for SF trains. The only exception being Swarna Jayanti Exp. I don't know how it got 27XX while MYS was part of SR before SWR and SR had 26XX.

That is exactly my worry. I have booked in 12557 as well as 12429. Don't know which one to take. I like sleeper travel so want to take Sapt Kranti but don't want to miss 14311. If 14311 also gets delayed on daily basis, then it is fine.
