According to a press release, LHB coaches have the advantages of being more spacious and comfortable with augmented passenger amenities for a hassle-free journey from safety point of view. The Hydraulic shock absorber and improved suspension system of LHB coaches ensures greater riding comfort for the passengers compared to conventional rakes, NFR stated. Each coach has “Modular Interiors” that integrate lighting into the ceiling and luggage racks and wider windows. All LHB coaches are equipped with a Controlled Discharge Bathroom System and Bio-toilets, which are environmentally friendly as compared to ICF coaches, the statement added.

In order to provide a safer, faster and more comfortable travelling experience to the public, the Indian Railways decided to convert the Guwahati – Barmer – Guwahati Express into a modern LHB rake, NFR explained.
