Indian Railways will soon roll out the 3-tier Humsafar Express train with brand new features, giving a huge boost to the middle class.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had announced the launch of this train in his Rail
Budget speech earlier this year.
Humsafar Express is proposed to be a fully air conditioned 3-tier service for
The Minister had also said the train would ensure cost recovery by means of tariff and non-tariff measures.
Now, the train is almost ready to start service. The final touches are being given to the coaches being manufactured at the Rail Coach Factory in Kapurthala. All the coaches are stainless steel LHB coaches, which are capable of running at 160 km/hr.
Speaking to Financial Express, officials at the factory said: ““The seats have been provided with better padding, and are therefore more comfortable.”
Mobile and laptop charging points have also been provided in the train. Meals will be available on an optional basis.
LED bulbs, CCTVs, fire and smoke detection systems and bio-toilets have been provided in all coaches.
This fully air-conditioned LCB (Linke Hofmann Busch) 3-tier coach train will have all display boards that will also have braille facility for the visually impaired,” the officials said.
These are by no means all the new features on Humsafar Express. Officials have said all attempts will be made to make the train more comfortable for passengers.
