Posted by Think India


Train more luxurious. Tejas Express which is designed to provide flight like experience in trains unveiled this morning. The luxury train will travel between Goa and Mumbai. Country's first high-speed train was flagged off today by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu.

The Premium train will run from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Mumbai at 5 am on every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 24 and arrive at Karmali at 1.30 pm on the same day. It will leave Karmali at 2.30 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 23 and arrive at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Mumbai at 11 pm the same day.

Tejas Express is having all the features you can ask for. The fancy LHB coaches are fitted with LED Screens, a Coffee vending machines and a WiFi connectivity. Coaches will also be having features like touchless water taps, hand dryers and bio-vacuum toilets.

Train coaches of Tejas Express are manufactured in Kapurthala and it will be having automatic entrance door. Till now the automatic entrance door was only for Metro Trains.

Tejas Express will comprise of 20 coaches with one executive AC Chair Car with a seating capacity of 56 and 12 AC chair cars with the seating capacity of 78.
Though the cost of travel in these trains is somewhat high as a one-way trip from Mumbai to Goa would cost Rs2740 with food and Rs 2585 without food.

Our Take:
Though the fare of Tejas Express is almost double than the existing Chair Car fairs but still cheaper than the flight fares. We should also the fact that the services we are getting in this premium train. We think more such high-speed trains should run on different routes throughout the country. Tejas Express is certainly an achievement for Indian Railways.
