#LHB
In the process of LHB-fication a trend can be seen. That said, if a train has more than one rakes (Ex: Gitanjali Express has 4 rakes), then many times only one rake gets LHB first and other rake(s) continue(s) for months before being converted to LHB. In this constraint do you think that a train should be LHB-fied only when there are enough coaches available to convert all of it's rakes?
**Below are the potential issues of part LHB-fication I can think of-
1)
...
more...
Injustice to those passengers who are paying same fare for same service, but not getting the comfort and safety of LHB.
2) Operational problem for IR where they have to keep two types of booking option for same train based on the rake style (ICF/LHB).
If you have any other point to share, kindly comment.

Yes. all the rakes of a train should get LHB together

Yesterday (18:45)   22436/New Delhi - Varanasi Vande Bharat Express | BSB/Varanasi Junction (9 PFs)

After seeing the run of Vande Bharat in ALD-BSB through two different routes (via JNH and via ALY), which route is the better choice ?
Criteria :
- Can be covered within 1hr 35 mins.
- Lesser PSRs and TSRs.
-
...
more...
Less congestion.
P.S.
My observations so far:
* Despite of very poor track conditions, Vande Bharat still managed to cover ALD-BSB via JNH within 1 hr 45 mins.
Distance = 135 km.
Average speed = 77 kmph
* On the experimental route (via ALY-MBS), Vande Bharat is not getting proper clearance. Other SF's like Shivganga and Senani generally take around 2 hrs to cover ALD-BSB. And Vande Bharat is still taking around 2 hrs.
Distance = 125 km
Average Speed = 62 kmph
So the previous route was probably better than the new route. That's why I've voted for NR route.
-> If possible, kindly provide reason for your vote.

Which is your most travelled route since 2013 among these with mentioned conditions and classes of accomodation? ASR/DLI LDH should be edited as/ read as ASR LDH. All Non AC coaches like Non AC Sleeper, Non AC Second class (both reserved and unreserved) are NOT eligible. If by AC Chair Car (Not Garib Rath or Yuva type or 3/3 seats in all or most of the rows each) of Shatabdi, Duronto, Gatiman, Tejas, Super AC or similar standard only and not of any other. .. If by Anubhuti, AC First, AC Executive Chair, AC 2 T, AC 3 T (Except Garib rath, Yuva. If AC 3 T has side middle only Duronto is acceptable), 3 AC Economy (3 AC Economy of Duronto only) then any train. Route should be covered completely and not partially or not beyond the route but if your boarding/ deboarding station is not in the list, you...

can vote for another station of same city/ urban agglomeration. If both ends of a journey are in UP then Ghaziabad passengers should vote for GZB and not for a station of Delhi - otherwise for Delhi. Gurgaon, Faridabad should vote for Delhi. Raniganj, Asansol are shown together. Passengers from stations around Panchkula town, SAS Nagar (Mohali) town can vote for CDG. All of these routes are connected by Shatabdi/ Shatabdi and Gatiman but other passengers also can vote as mentioned where nominated classes are not cheaper than Shatabdi AC Chair Car excluding catering charge (however there may be exception in first and initial few stages). Any station in Chandigarh, Panchkula, SAS Nagar (Mohali) to PNP could be included among the options. If you are willing to vote for this route, you can give reply post as new option inclusion is not possible.
