नई दिल्‍ली. भारतीय रेलवे (Indian Railways) ने 92 साल पुरानी गोल्‍डन टेंपल मेल (Golden Temple Mail) के पारंपरिक रैक्‍स को आधुनिक एलएचबी रैक्‍स (LHB Rakes) से तब्‍दील कर नया कारनामा कर डाला है. आजादी से पहले इस ट्रेन को फ्रंटियर मेल (Frontier Mail) के नाम से पहचाना जाता था. रेलवे ने महात्‍मा गांधी (Mahatma Gandhi) की 151वीं जयंती के मौके पर गोल्‍डन टेंपल मेल के 92 गौरवशाली वर्षों की यात्रा को याद किया. बंटवारे से पहले फ्रंटियर मेल वर्तमान पाकिस्‍तान के पेशावर शहर (Peshawar City) तक जाती थी.

फ्रंटियर मेल से जुड़ी हैं ऐतिहासिक यादें, अब इसमें होंगे 22 कोच रेलवे ने कहा कि फ्रंटियर मेल ब्रिटिश इंडिया (British India) की सबसे प्रतिष्ठित ट्रेनों में शामिल थी. इस ट्रेन के साथ कई ऐतिहासिक यादें जुड़ी हुई हैं. राष्‍ट्रपिता महात्‍मा गांधी ने दांडी यात्रा (Dandi March) समेत कई मौकों पर फ्रंटियर मेल से सफर किया था. रेलवे के एक अधिकारी ने बताया कि इस समय स्‍पेशल ट्रेन के तौर पर चलाई जा रही ट्रेन संख्‍या 12903/12904 के चारों कंवेंशनल रैक्‍स बदल दिए गए हैं. अब इसमें 22 बोगियां (Coaches) होंगी, जिनमें फर्स्‍ट क्‍लास, एसी 2-टियर, एसी 3-टियर, स्‍लीपर, सेकेंड क्‍लास और एक पैंट्री कार शामिल है।
--------------- अधिकारी ने कहा कि एलएचबी रैक्‍स से ना सिर्फ पैसेंजर्स को ज्‍यादा आरामदायक सफर का लुत्‍फ मिलेगा बल्कि ये ज्‍यादा सुरक्षित (More Safe) भी होगा. उन्‍होंने बताया कि कोविड-19 (COVID-19) के कारण पेश आने वाली कई चुनौतियों के बीच सावधानी बरतते हुए सभी बोगियों को कम समय में तैयार किया गया. बता दें कि एलएचबी कोचेज पारंपरिक रैक्‍स के मुकाबले हल्‍के होते हैं. वहीं, ये तेज रफ्तार के साथ ज्‍यादा से ज्‍यादा लोगों को ले जाने में सक्षम (Carrying Capacity) होते हैं. सुरक्षा के नजरिये से देखा जाए तो दुर्घटना होने पर एलएचबी कोच एक दूसरे के ऊपर नहीं चढ़ते (Anti-Climbing Features) हैं.
--------------------- इंडियन रेलवे को इनके रखरखाव पर नहीं करना पड़ेगा ज्‍यादा खर्च एलएचबी कोच का इंटीरियर आईसीएफ कोच से बेहतर होता है. इनके रखरखाव (Maintenance) की भी कम जरूरत पड़ती है यानी रेलवे को इस पर ज्‍यादा खर्च नहीं करना होगा. लंबी दूरी की यात्रा के दौरान एलएचबी कोच के सभी फीचर्स के कारण लोगों को ज्‍यादा आरामदायक और सुरक्षित सफर (Safe Journey) का अनुभव मिलेगा. ये कोच भारतीय रेलवे की ओर से ग्राहकों की मांग और अपेक्षाओं को पूरा करने के प्रयास में लगातार सुधार की राह आसान बनाते हैं. गोल्‍डन टेंपल मेल में किए गए ये बदलाव कोरोना संकट के मुश्किल दौर में पश्चिमी रेलवे के लिए एक और मील का पत्थर है।

Indian Railways converted all four conventional rakes of Mumbai Central – Amritsar Golden Temple Mail with LHB rakes
Before the partition of India, Golden Temple Mail used to run as Frontier Mail to the city of Peshawar

birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
This is a befitting salute to this prestigious train of the erstwhile British India, which has its special importance being related to several historical events & memorable visits of Mahatma Gandhiji including on the occasion of Dandi March.
According to a Western Railway official, all four conventional rakes of Train No. 12903 / 12904 Mumbai Central – Amritsar Golden Temple Mail, which is currently running as special Train No. 02903/ 02904 Mumbai Central – Amritsar Special train now runs with LHB rakes instead of conventional rakes with effect from 3 October, 2020. The train will comprise of 22 coaches consisting of First Class, AC 2-Tier, AC 3-Tier, Sleeper and Second Class coaches and a Pantry Car. It will not only provide comfort to the passengers but will also ensure the increase in their safety.
All the coaches were commissioned in short span inspite of many constraints faced due to COVID-19, taking all due precautions. The special features of LHB coaches as compared to ICF coaches are that the LHB coaches are lighter in weight, have higher carrying capacity as well as higher speed potential. LHB coaches also have anti-climbing features which means that in case of a collision the coaches do not climb on top of each other.
Also, these coaches have modular interiors, better ride index and require less maintenance. This upgradation will make the journey safe & comfortable for passengers during the long distance travelling. It also heralds the continual improvement path followed by Indian Railways in its effort to meet customer demands and expectations and marks yet another milestone achieved by Western Railway in these difficult COVID times.
Giving an insight into the nostalgic history of the Golden Temple Mail, the railway official informed that this legendary train recently completed its 92 years of inaugural run on 1st September, 2020. Before the Partition of India, this train ran as the Frontier Mail ferrying passengers arriving by Steamer from Europe directly from Ballard Pier in the then Bombay to the city of Peshawar on India's North-West Frontier. After the partition of India in 1947, the terminal station of this train was changed to Amritsar.
Frontier Mail was formally named the Golden Temple Mail in September, 1996. The Frontier Mail also finds a place in romanticised biographies of film actor Prithviraj Kapoor who is believed to have travelled to Bombay from his hometown of Peshawar by the Frontier Mail in 1928 to act in films. The Frontier Mail was the first air-conditioned train in the Indian Peninsula, when it got an air-conditioned compartment in 1934. Now, another page has been added in the annals of history as Golden Temple Mail now runs with LHB coaches in all its rakes.
