Press Release: MAXIMUM SPEED OF SEVERAL TRAINS TO BE INCREASED FROM 110 KMPH TO 130 KMPH

MAXIMUM SPEED OF SEVERAL TRAINS TO BE INCREASED FROM 110 KMPH TO 130 KMPH

Kolkata, July 7, 2024:

Henceforth, the maximum speed of several trains will be increased from 110 to 130 kmph, which will increase the average speed of long-distance trains and reduce the journey time. This higher speed will be effective very shortly. Eastern Railway is constantly taking various modernization measures to improve its services and the inclusion of LHB coaches is an important part of that effort. The FIAT coaches enable the rakes to run at higher speeds and make the journey smoother.

Built with cutting-edge technology, LHB coaches promise a journey that's not o­nly more comfortable but also safer. They are longer, lighter, and perfect for high-speed travel, enhancing travel quality and slashing maintenance costs.

Eastern Railway's recent upgrade includes LHB coaches o­n various routes, offering passengers plush seating, superior ventilation, and a more stable ride. This transformation makes traveling safer, more convenient, and incredibly comfortable.
