Tejas Express, scheduled to flag off Monday afternoon, will come with many modern technologies on board, such as Wi-Fi, infotainment system, LED TVs, CCTV, etc. At top speed of 200kmph, the all-new Tejas Express is faster than Shatabdi Express, and has a graffiti proof body, fire and smoke detection facilities. The doors of all 13 coaches, including the executive coach, are centrally controlled.
"Tomorrow is going to be a historic day for the Indian Railways when Tejas Express, which boasts of ultra-modern amenities like on board infotainment, Wi-Fi, CCTV, fire and smoke detection facilities, tea/coffee vending machine etc. will make its maiden run from Mumbai," D K Sharma, General Manager of the Central Railway, said. Sharma, who inspected the train at the

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Mumbai (CSTM) likened Tejas Express with an "aeroplane moving on the ground".
"I would say that traveling by this premium train would provide a better experience than flying in a plane. This train would pass through the lush greenery of the Konkan belt, giving a picturesque view of the seashore, mountains and valleys, which will let you enjoy the journey and not just the destination (Goa)," he said.
When asked about reports that a few miscreants had damaged the windows of the Tejas Express, even before its launch, the official said, "We have taken proper note of it and it is no more an issue now."
Tejas Express route and schedule
Giving the details of the route and schedule of the train, Sharma said it would run between Mumbai and Karmali (Goa) five days a week during non-monsoon period and three days a week during monsoon by halting at Dadar, Thane, Panvel, Ratnagiri and Kudal stations.
"Train No 22119 Superfast Tejas Express will leave CST at 5am every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 24 and arrive at Karmali at 1.30pm the same day.
Train No 22120 Superfast Tejas Express will leave Karmali at 2.30pm on every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, starting from May 23 and arrive at the CST at 9pm," he said.
This train will have one executive AC chair car with 56 seating capacity and 12 AC chair cars with 78 seat capacity of each coach, Sharma said.
Tejas Express ticket bookings
CR's Chief Commercial Manager Shailendra Kumar expressed happiness over the "positive response" shown by passengers in booking advance tickets for the train.
Kumar, who accompanied Sharma during the train inspection, added, "The ticket booking started within minutes of its opening this morning and in the first four hours, 207 passengers booked tickets for the AC chair car and 10 for executive AC chair car."
Sharing details of the fares, Kumar said Tejas Express's executive class fare has been fixed at Rs. 2,680 with food and Rs. 2,525 without food, and for AC chair car the fare has been fixed at Rs 1,280 with food and Rs. 1,155 without food.
Kumar also informed that the railways has planned optional onboard catering services.
"If a passenger does not opt for catering services at the time of booking the ticket and decides to buy meals onboard, an extra amount of Rs. 50 per service in addition to the prescribed catering charges, shall be charged subject to availability," he added.

MUMBAI: The Tejas Express, the first Indian train with an on board infotainment system and assures an aircraft like experience is all set for its maiden run between Mumbai and Karmali railway station in Goa.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will flag off the train on its first journey from Mumbai CST on Monday. The train that sports a bright yellow look has a total 15 LHB coaches, 12 of which are 3x2 chair cars, while one is an executive chair car that has more leg space and a 2x2 seat combination.

seats have separate LCD displays in front of them and a personal light, airflow and caller bell panel above them, very similar to an aircraft. Large windows, elegant design, more leg space and a speed that can go up to 200 kmph are the premium features that make the train around 20 per cent costlier than the Shatabdi express.
"Tejas Express is a semi high speed train having modern on board facilities, enhanced passenger comfort and showcases the future of Train travel in India," divisional railway manager Ravinder Goyal said here on Sunday, as the train was put on display on platform no. 18 of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST). Several passengers and railway staff were seen taking selfies with the new train.
The coaches also have new age automatic sliding doors, modern bio-vacuum toilets, water level indicators, tap sensors, hand dryers, integrated braille displays, WiFi, tea-coffee vending machines, aircraft-like snack tables, CCTV cameras, fire & smoke detection and suppression system.
The IRCTC has also offered local cuisine and a celebrity chef menu, for which passengers will have to shell out about Rs 1000-1500 more than the tickets without catering facility.
The train will make five stops and reach Goa in 7 hours 30 minutes, saving around two hours of travel time. However, the speed restrictions on the Konkan railway line during the monsoon would mean that the train won't be able to achieve its fullest speed potential on the Mumbai-Goa route very soon.
The Tejas train is expected to ply on New Delhi-Chandigarh and Lucknow-Anand Vihar(T) after the Mumbai CST-Karmali route.

* "Flight on wheels" was actually planned way back in 2004, as Madgaon-CSTM Shatabdi with a travel time of just 6 hours. Branding Tejas as "Flight on Wheels", which does about 550km journey in 8.5 hrs journey at an avg speed of just 65 kmph, gives a very poor impression about the standard of IR.
* Tejas cannot be branded as "luxury on wheels" also because much higher benchmark has already been set by the ultimate luxury trains operating on IR network like Palace-on-wheels, Maharaja-Express, Royal-Rajasthan-on-Wheels, Deccan-Odyssy, Golden-Chariot etc

Lets hope that passengers also behave responsibly and not tamper with the LED tv's etc. Also CCTV and other equipment is properly maintained.
Maybe after few months of running it would be good to see how may of these facilities are in working condition

I feel gaatimaan is over priced as compared to tejas
Ndls- Agra 188 km fare- 464+181+40+45+25=755
With no such facilities like advance coach and facilities as compared to tejas. Tejas is very competitively priced.

An attendant would be at your seat at the push of a button.
Excitement :The train is parked at the platform no. 18 Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus. Curious onlookers took a peak and the excitement levels were writ large on their faces. People were seen taking selfies with the train in the background.

“Good Train on poor track” is the one line description of the first Tejas. A luxurious, aesthetic & 200kmph capable rake, when operated on 110/130kmph super-saturated single rly line, can at the best give a mediocre service.

There are many deficiencies in the first Tejas due to which it’s round the year success is very doubtful
(1) Operational Speed of 110/130kmph(doubtful?), and avg
...

speed-65kmph is too low
(2) Journey time is too high 8:30 hrs is too long and uncomfortable for a chaircar journey
(3) Destination should be MAO instead of Karmali
(4) Inconvenient timings- Departure time of 5:00 am at CSTM is too early and arrival time of 23:00 is a bit late.
(5) Too high fare of Tejas as compared to other trains. Tejas seats are available at 2600+catering charges. Please see below link
/blog/post/2287327
(6) Tejas fare 2600+catering charges as against is too high as compared to seats currently offered at Rs. 1688(IA), Rs 2036(GoAir).. on yatra.com

-
Tejas should have been introduced after upgradation of CSTM-MAO line to 160kmph and after commissioning of capacity augmentation projects like Patch doubling, new Rly stations, electrification etc. on the Tejas route.
Above could have ensured a short and convenient journey time of around 5-6 hours for CSTM-MAO journey with CSTM Departure/Arrival at about 7:00/21:00 hrs.
Tejas could be a super success even if it is able to attract a small fraction of the airline paxs of Mum-Goa route which is above 2 lac air-passengers per month. Air journey is 70-75 minutes and the Tejas journey has to be below 5 hrs for that to happen.

Obtaining an average speed of 65Kmph in itself is a huge achievement on a single line saturated route like KR. Very few trains on this route eg.:DR-MAO JS, TVC/MAORajdhani and CSTM-MAJN SF are the only ones getting very high priority on this route. Most other trains take 12Hrs for Mumbai-Goa Journey, so people will prefer this train
Also, people spend 1500-2000 Rs for 15-16Hrs of sitting overnight journey in a bus through the Ghats den why will they mind spending the same for a comfortable 8.5Hrs journey in Tejas.
Even if Tejas doesnt

attract Airways passengers, it will definitely draw a huge crowd from the Bus service plying between Mumbai and Goa. Also not only, end-to-end travelers but native people of Konkan settled in Mumbai will definitely use this train as the fastest and comfortable means to reach their native places in short time as no flight service is available from Mumbai to Ratnagiri/Sindhudurg districts.
5:00Am departure and 23:00 arrival is not at all a problem in a buzzing Metro city like Mumbai where u can easily take an EMU from the suburban station nearest to ur home n board Tejas at CSTM/DR/TNA/PNVL.

Some of the things you mentioned in deficiencies.
1. 65kmph avg is not low. It is KR and single line. There will be crossing.
2. CC is not normal CC which you see in shatabdi, it has foldable legrest, which means you can relax very well
3. For people going to Goa, Karmali is closer than MAO. Karmali is in the heart of goa.(but

am not sure about connectivity from station, but i guess, with this train, it will increase for sure)
4. 5AM is not too early. It is just early departure, and this train is mainly for tourist, and they wont mind going early
5. Fare is not at all high, just do a reality check about food price.
6. Flight prices are dynamic and will increase rapidly, and the view KR provides can never be given by a flight.

160kmph trial is thing of past (about 13 years back). After that trial there were a few major accidents on KR which forces rlys to restrict speed of trains.
During monsoon months, Konkan Route in not considered safe at normal speed. Hence, max speed is kept 90/100kmph during these months.

Kalka shat nhi agar tejas aya to competition hoga CDG shat k sath keuki CDG shat k jyadatar pax current reservation karte hai with flexi fare, to agar tejas as gaya jiska fixed 20% inflated fare hai to CDG shat ka current reservation kam ho jayega
Lekin on the other hand NDLS CDG section main pax v bohot jyada hai

रेल मंत्री श्री सुरेश प्रभाकर प्रभु ने आज तेजस ट्रेन के रेक का निरीक्षण किया। रेलवे बोर्ड के अध्‍यक्ष श्री ए.के. मित्‍तल, रेलवे बोर्ड के सदस्‍य (रोलिंग स्‍टॉक) श्री रविन्‍द्र गुप्‍ता, सदस्‍य (संकर्षण) श्री घनश्‍याम सिंह, रेलवे बोर्ड के अन्‍य सदस्‍य, उत्‍तरी रेलवे के महाप्रबंधक श्री आर.के. कुलश्रेष्‍ठ और वरिष्‍ठ पदाधिकारीगण भी इस अवसर पर उपस्थित थे।
पृष्‍ठभूमि :

में ट्रेन से सफर के भविष्‍य को दर्शाती है। तेजस एक्‍सप्रेस का संचालन शीघ्र ही शुरू होने वाला है। इसके डिब्‍बों का निर्माण कपूरथला स्थित रेल कोच फैक्‍टरी में किया गया है। इसके अभिनव डिजाइन वाले डिब्‍बे 200 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटे की गति से दौड़ने में सक्षम हैं, लेकिन रेल की पटरियों में निहित सीमाओं के चलते ये डिब्‍बे 160 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटे की गति से ही दौड़ पाएंगे। स्टील ब्रेक डिस्क, सिंटर्ड पैड, इलेक्ट्रो–नयूमैटिक एसिस्‍ट ब्रेक सिस्टम की सहायता से 200 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटे की गति क्षमता हासिल की गई।
16 नॉन-एक्जीक्‍यूटिव एवं दो एक्‍जीक्‍यूटिव चेयर कारों और एक पावर कोच समेत 19 डिब्‍बों वाले प्रथम रेक का निरीक्षण आज रेल मंत्री द्वारा किया गया। एक एक्‍जीक्‍यूटिव कोच को आगे चलकर एक स्‍मार्ट कोच में तबदील कर दिया जाएगा, जिसमें कुछ अतिरिक्‍त सुविधाएं होंगी। इस आशय की घोषणा बजट 2016-17 में की गई थी।
तेजस ट्रेन की खास बातें –
बायो-वैक्यूम शौचालय (पानी की कम खपत और स्वच्छ)
जल स्तर संकेतक
टचलेस वाटर टैप, साबुन मशीन

सुरक्षित गैंगवेज (शोर, गंदगी, रेत, पानी के प्रवेश को कम करता है, यात्रियों की सुरक्षा को बेहतर करता है और इसके साथ ही आरामदेह, ऊर्जा दक्षता, सुरुचिपूर्ण डिजाइन है)
इलेक्ट्रो न्‍यूमैटिक एयर ब्रेक
आग और धुआं का पता लगाने एवं शमन प्रणाली
पावर कार में अग्नि शमन प्रणाली
