India Finally Has High-End Train Like Tejas Express, But This Shows How We Don’t Deserve It

While the trip of the high-speed train started amid much fanfare, the train’s journey back showed the reality of how its passengers didn’t even care for a day of taking care of the facilities provided to them.

According to railway officials, the train came back with fewer headphones, damaged infotainment screens and waste strewn all over the train.

 


The train which was flagged off from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus on May 22 made its return journey the next day on May 23.

What is more, the railway officials had anticipated such things yet they were left surprised looking at the extent of damage that the passengers had caused.

 

While the railway authorities get back to fixing the damage, they now plan to appeal to passengers to avoid damaging the train and take care of the facility provided to them.

The train, which is capable of running at the speed of 200 kmph has several unique features such as automatic doors, 9-inch infotainment screens for each seat, tea-coffee vending machines, vacuum bio-toilets, touch-free water taps in toilet and secured gangway.

According to railway officials, at least 12 of the high-quality headphones are missing and many infotainment screens have been found scratched.

This is not the first time that passengers have severely damaged a newly launched train, back in 2016 the Mahamana express had faced similar fate where passengers had even tried to steal newly attached taps from the train’s washrooms.
