Finally done the much awaited trip by Tejas Express, while going traveled in chair Car & returned in Executive Class from Kudal to Dadar. My genuine comments,for both the class of travel
Comments on Chair Car Service.
Seating Arrangements - as usual 3 x 2 but not like the regular Shatabdi one but taller seats with more comforts for passenger. The much hyped entertainment system with just 5 movie options in Bollywood section (Ajab prem ji Gazab Kahani / Anand / Bhagam Bhag / Tahaan ). No gaming options available in
Chair Car LED Screens,
The food offered is terrible on account of Quality & Quantity both.
Served a Cup of Tea with small cake at 6.45am after Panvel. the breakfst was served at 8.15 am, which comprises of Upama / 2 slice of Bread / butter chip let & Real Mix Fruit Juice in Tetra pack. The portion of Upma was also not adequate. There was no Tea / Coffee Service after Break Fast.
Train was delayed by 10mins till Kankavali but halted for 35mins at Kankavali for Mandovi Express & Trivendrum Rajdhani Crossings, which resulted into 45 mins delay till Kudal.
The occupancy was 100% & 10% of the passengers alighted at Ratnagiri & around 60% at Kudal Station. Overall journey was comfortable with nice AC & seats but certainly not the Value for money due to its 40% additional fare over Janashatabdi.
AC Executive Class Service - Paid Rs.2670 for the journey, while the GO Air late evening Flight was also available at Rs.3300 just 2 days back
Seating Arrangements - Seats are like that of Premier class seats of Airlines with adjustable leg rest & wide enough to give you much needed comfort. The LED screens are little bigger than available in Chair Car with Games for children.
Food & Service - The only word is Pathetic, Served a samosa / small pack of cashews & small pack of Good Day Biscuits along with sachet of ready made Coffee from Girnar. The Dinner was served at around 8.00pm & was prepared by Carnival Restaurant in Ratnagiri, It comprises of 3 Chapati / Paneer Gravy / Dal in bowl / 2 pieces of Gulab Jamun & Amul butter Milk
Generally 2 different Sabji served in Executive class of Shatabdi Express but here it is only one that too terrible. Its very Oily & preparation was completely like a Fish Curry but with pieces of Paneer instead of Fish in Malwani Style. The portion of rice was also very small with tasteless dal. No curd & instead Chass was served, which is big no for dinner
I had traveled by almost all the Shatabdis (Mubai - Ahmedabad / Chennai - Banglore / Agra - Jaipur / New Delhi to Chanigadh / Kathgodam / Kanpur ) & mostly by Executive class & i rate this as worst food compare to any of the Shatabdi's mentioned.
I had given my feedback to IRCTC Manager travelling in the coach & he was almost agreed on the same.
Over all, nothing different than Shatabdi & if you carry your own Tab then the extra premium which Railway charges is worthless
The train was on time till Panvel but got deayed by 40 mins till Dadar.
Over All Rating
Seating & AC Quality - 4/5
Food - 1/5
Punctuality - 2/5 ( 40 mins delay on both the occasion)
Much hyped Infotainment - 2/5
The train will be a success for short period due to media hype but hardly find the repeat passengers who will pay the unnecessary premium\
The much published stories of Head Phones stolen by Passenger = These are cheap head phones similar to what you get in Hip N Hope City tour buses of Paris & Amsterdam to hear the Commentary in preferred language but there you will get 100's of the head phones free & here we make hue n cry about passengers taking the head phones

Railways minister SP Prabhu announces Rs 5,000 crore joint venture with Assam government; project to eliminate 12 level crossings between Kamakhya and New Guwahati
GUWAHATI, Nov 10: Announcing a slew of steps for rapid and large scale development of rail connectivity in the Northeastern region, Minister of Railways Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu on Thursday announced a Rs 5,000 crore joint venture with Assam government to construct four elevated railway tracks between Kamakhya and New Guwahati to eliminate 12 level crossing gates in Guwahati city.
made the announcement while laying the foundation stone for the project of doubling of railway line from New Bongaigaon to Kamakhya via Goalpara town and the doubling of railway line from Digaru to Hojai at a glittering function held at the RPF Parade Ground at Maligaon. He also laid the foundation stone for the much-awaited railway electrification project for Raninagar Jalpaiguri – Guwahati via Rangiya railway line and flagged off the first passenger train services on the 10 kilometre Karimganj – Maishashan newly converted broad gauge section in Barak Valley.
Prabhu said construction of the elevated tracks connecting Kamakhya and New Guwahati would decongest city roads, free up railway land and enable railways to develop Guwahati station as a commercial hub. He also said the new projects would keep provisions for connectivity with the proposed metro rail system.
Speaking at the function, Assam Governor Banwarilala Purohit congratulated NF Railway team and the Railway Minister for their success in starting many projects in the Northeast on time.
While thanking the Railway Minister for his initiatives in development of rail network in the Northeast, Chief Minister Sarbanada Sonowal emphasized on speedy completion of all railway projects in the State. He also requested the Railway Minister to take up construction of railway lines so that every district headquarters of the State is connected by rail. The Chief Minister also requested Prabhu to initiate steps involving the Railways for skill development of the youth of the region.
The 10-km track between Karimganj and Maishashan was converted into broad gauge as part of the Lumding–Badarpur–Silchar gauge conversion project. Only a 30 km stretch between Baraigram and Durlavchera still remains to be converted into broad gauge, but the Railway Minister said this portion would also be converted into broad gauge by May 2017. Two pair of new trains – 55686/55685 Silchar–Maishashan Passenger & 55662/55661 Karimganj–Maishashan Passenger will start operating from tomorrow, he announced.
The doubling of 176-km long New Bongaigaon–Kamakhya railway line was sanctioned in 2015-16 Railway budget at an approximate cost of Rs 2,232 crore. The section will have 18 stations where construction of new station building and yard remodeling would be taken up.
The doubling of 102-km long Digaru–Hojai railway line was also sanctioned in 2015-16 Railway budget at an approximate cost of Rs 871 crore. The section has 15 stations. The doubling of Hojai to Lumding section had already been sanctioned for which the Railway Minister of State Rajen Gohain and Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal had laid foundation stone on September 12 this year.
The project for electrification from Raninagar Jalpaiguri to New Bongaigaon and then from New Bongaigaon to Guwahati was entrusted with Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL) in 2014 and 2015 respectively. The RVNL will execute the project on turnkey basis at a total cost of Rs 655.55 crore.
The function was also attended by Minister of State for Railways Rajen Gohain, General Manager of NF Railway Chahatey Ram, General Manager of NF Railway (Construction) HK Jaggi, Chief Managing Director of Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL) SC Agnihotri, other senior railway and RVNL officials and a host of invited guests.
