Both are related to engine Orientation...lhf means longer hood is in front , shf means shorter hood is in front..

For WDP-4 and 4B, max permissible speed in SHF allowed is 130km/hr, whereas in LHF, it is 110 km/hr... Reason??? Visibility is poorer in LHF than SHF..

Actually, a WDM/WDP/WDG can go to 130kph in LHF mode but due to tech restrictions, they sometimes touch only 110kph max!! :)
