RIDE INDEX for various coaches of INDIAN RAILWAYS
3.5(Upper limit)--> for ICF coaches, including BEML and CBC
2.75(upper limit)--> for LHB coaches
4.2(Upper limit)--> For Goods and wagons

1.0--> Very Good
2.0--> Good
3.0--> Satisfactory
4.0--> Tolerable
5.0--> Dangerous
In this order, LHB coaches offer the best comfort for a passenger followed by ICF coaches while Goods and wagons are not really designed for comfort and dont have much of Vertical and lateral vibration dampers.
