The Ministry of Railways has recently released the new pictures of newly introduced air-conditioned (AC) coaches. The railways coaches are manufactured by the Integral Coach Factory (ICF). The difference between the earlier coaches and the new ones lies in the fact that the new coaches have running or continuous glass windows panes unlike the earlier coaches that bear separate window glasses placed along the respective window seats. Another difference that has been introduced by the Railways Ministry in the new air-conditioned (AC) coaches is that the vertical pillars have been equipped with additional glasses.
A press release released on Friday by the Press Information Bureau (PIB) says that the Indian Railwaysnew design has been introduced to make the coaches aesthetically pleasing adorned with eye-catching appearance.
The Railway ministry’srelease also stated that the Integral coach factory is innovating coach designs to make them look not only good but also sustainable models of excellence.
Currently, the LHB Coaches that have been constructed by the ICF have been equipped with split windows of size 1100 mm (L) x 680 mm (H).
As a matter of fact, there will be no design alteration in the interiors of coaches that will be maintained as before.
