Indian Railways Tejas express is new semi high speed train with flight-like experience on the tracks. The bright yellow luxurious train, with matching colored locomotive, runs with safer LHB coaches. The coaches are fitted with LED screens, coffee vending machines and WiFi and Fire and Smoke detection facilities.
Being a single line saturated section with number of crossings, it takes 8hours 20minutes to cover 552 kilometers with 5 scheduled halts. By the way presently India's fastest train is Nizamuddin(Delhi)to Agra 'Gatimaan express covering 188 kilometers in 1hour 40minutes.
@lalam Yes, I watched the video about Gatimaan Express. I know he works with WAP-5, so he flies fast, people must quickly escape from the rails, when he goes... I think for such a distance the ticket price is a bit expensive. Although the service of train passengers service is good. I also saw that in India the Talgo trains from Spain were being tested. But did not see them in the work. What were these trains planned for?
@white.dead (Alexander) Talgo speed trials were quite successful on prime route Mumbai-Delhi considering tracks here. But commercial terms did not work out between IR & Talgo in terms of direct procurement & technology transfer. Hence India is now working on making its own rolling stock fit for those speeds and spending on up-gradation of tracks.
