To ensure safety of passengers and better comfort, Konkan Railway has decided to replace the old coaches of Madgaon Junction-Mumbai CSMT Mandovi express and Madgaon Junction-Mumbai CSMT Konkankanya express with German LHB design coaches.

 
The LHB coaches have been designed for improved passenger safety and are made up of stainless steel and aluminium which make them lighter compared to the conventional carriages. The LHB coaches are longer than the old coaches, thereby increasing the seating capacity .They are equipped with FIAT bogie, which require less intensive maintenance. Each coach also has an advanced pneumatic disc brake system for efficient braking at higher speeds, modular interiors that integrate lighting into the ceiling and luggage racks and wider windows.
 
The hydraulic shock absorber and improved suspension system of LHB coaches ensures greater riding comfort for the passengers compared to conventional rakes.
 
The air conditioning system of the LHB coaches is superior compared to the older rakes and is controlled by a microprocessor which gives passengers better comfort during summer and winter seasons. They are provided with Centre Buffer Coupling (CBC), which ensure greater safety.
