New Delhi: Soon, Shatabdi Express train passengers will be able to enjoy Tejas Express amenities in Shatabdi trains without any extra charges! Railways has attached Tejas Express coaches in Amritsar Shatabdi Express. It may be noted that recently rake of Tejas Express has a trial recently between Delhi and Sonipat.
This Friday, these Tejas Express coaches were attached to the Shatabdi train which means
that passengers of Amritsar Shatabdi Express (12031/12032) will now be able to enjoy modern amenities in Shatabdi trains. Passengers of Amritsar Shatabdi Express will have a comfortable journey with modern amenities like bio vacuum toilets, comfortable seats, on-demand entertainment, CCTC etc. without having to pay extra fare.
A recent Money Bhaskar report mentioned that while the previous Shatabdi coach has 938 seats, the new Tejas coach has 1092 seats which means that more passengers will be able to travel. Also, the train will now have economy class coaches as well. The report cited railway officials saying that in future, the Shatabdi train will have Vande Bharat Express rakes.
It is worth mentioning that Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off the new Tejas Express train between Madurai-Chennai Egmore earlier this year in March. This new train has ergonomically designed seats, smart windows, personalised reading lights, attendant call button. The passengers will also enjoy onboard infotainment with Live TV, GPS based information system. The coaches will have LED lighting, WiFi, CCTV, USB charging, anti-graffiti vinyl wrapping. The train also has modular bio-vacuum toilets, automatic entry doors, sliding coach doors and sealed vestibules.
These new rakes will offer facilities such as exquisite interiors, windows with motor-operated blinds, PIS, plug doors, sealed gangways, Infotainment on seats, good lights etc. to Shatabdi travellers. Also, Integral Coach Factory (ICF) Chennai will roll out three more Train 18 rakes in this financial year. These rakes will replace present Shatabdi rakes in the future.
