    Integral Coach Factory Chennai had developed a 100% indigenous Stainless Steel Coach same as the LHB in all aspect. This is an initiative by ICF Make In India, and hope to manufacture 1,600 Coaches per year. The AC coaches due to it's higher Axle load will have wheels from Alstom while the normal coaches will be of 100% Indian parts . The first set of coaches have to undergo real time testing and Certification by the Railway Safety Board, after which the production will be in full swing. It should be noted that the Coach Factory at Kapurthala is still doing assembling only, and this effort by ICF is a Feather in it's cap confirming it's capability in development of Material, dies and Execution ...
    Here is a video of the First batch of LHB from ICF..

    The First of 800+ Electric Locos from Alstom had been delivered and undergoing trials . Designated WAG-12, this 12,000 HP engine is mainly for Freight trains of upto 6,000 Tons and a cruising speed of 100 Kmph. It's top speed is indicated as 120 Kmph .
    The Loco has 8 Driven wheels ie., powered wheels. Alstom had agreed for a Technology transfer. Currently Alstom had also set up a plant in Soviet Union for the Loco manufacturing.

    A shocking announcement had been made by the Railway Ministry that the Diesel Electric Locos will be taken off service and replaced by Electric Locos in the next 5 years to come. The Ministry claims that a saving of 11,500 crores per year can be made through this...I wonder how the generating and distribution cost had not been taken into account.It was already proven that if the cost of generation of power,and distribution, is taken into consideration, the Electric Locomotive is expensive to run and maintain. compared to the Diesel Electric...further if there were to be Power failures in sections, then the trains will be stranded , and may even lead to collision accidents. The Electrical Power Failure and Blackout in North India few years back just showed how this can happen..It was the Diesel Locos which brought the trains home , and enabled continuance of Train service thereafter without a hitch....

    Hope someone with knowledge and conviction makes the Ministry aware of the set back in going full Electric in traction in India,due to the dicey generation and distribution prevalent throughout the country ..
