    Tejas Express - Suresh Prabhu's idea of future train travel in India - is ready! Indian Railways is all set to roll out the luxurious feature-packed Tejas Express whose coaches have been designed to bear speeds of up to 200 kmph! Reports suggest that the first rake of the new train will start playing between Mumbai and Goa - so get ready to zip across short distances with infotainment and luxury on board! While the coaches of the train have been designed to take speeds of up to 200 kmph (clearly with an aim to increase speed later), for now the train will ply at a maximum speed of 130 kmph. Tejas Express has also been proposed for Delhi-Chandigarh and Surat to Mumbai route.

    From WiFi, star chiefs-chosen menu to LCD screens for entertainment - here's an exclusive preview of the Tejas Express!

    In line with the train's overall luxurious feel, the train's toilets have also been given a modern feel. Equipped with soap dispensers, touch-less water taps, odour-control system and occupancy indicators, the toilets in Tejas Express are a step up from the usual chair car trains.

    In line with Indian Railways vision to make tracks defecation free, Indian Railways has installed bio-vaccum toilets in Tejas Express. This would also ensure that as against normal toilets that need 10 litres of water per flush, only 1.5 litre of water would be consumed.

    The bogie of Tejas coaches have stainless steel discs - this means that the braking system is more efficient and the braking distance is less.

    The vinyl-wrapped specially designed exteriors are graffiti proof. The exterior has a bright colour theme of orange and yellow. The colourful exterior is in line with the looks of the new Humsafar and Antyodaya Express. Tejas Express has a dust-proof/sealed inter car gangway.

    IT MEANS THAT IF WE GO TO GOA BY TEJAS EXPRESS THEN WE WILL REACH GOA IN 7 HOURS BECAUSE AS PER NEWS IN PAPERS IT WAS MENTIONED THAT THE TRAIN RUN AT SPEED OF 130 KMPH BUT AS PER OUR PREVIOUS EXPERIANCE NO TRAIN RUNS ON THIS ROUTE AT SPEED MORE THAN 100 KM PH. AND IN TIME TABLE DESPLA ON INTERNET BY RAILWAY BOARD THE TRAIN WILL TAKE 10.40 HRS TO REACH GOA. THEN WHAT IS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS TRAIN AND OTHER TRAIN. SO WE REQUEST RAILWAY AUTHORITY TO TAKE TRIAL RUN OF THIS TRAIN ON MUMBAI GOA ROUTE AND THEN PUBLISH FINAL TIME TABLE FOR TEJAS EXPRESS.
