Retaining 2130 HRS arrival @ MS would provide convenient connection to TN express. MS departure could be pushed to 6:30 AM with TBM stoppage & to 7 AM without TBM stoppage. Delaying it to 7:30 AM could impact its return run timings & patronage too.

This train would reach 21.30 and TN leaves at 2200, so assuming it would take around 10 mts. for passengers to leave MS premises and take an auto for MAS for catching 2621 or 11028 or 2840 (advocated by me for long), it would barely leave them 20 mts. to catch TN, which yes, generally leaves from PF 5 but its PF also keeps changing. But more importantly, unlike 16128 Koodal, the benefit of telescopic fares will not be available to the passengers of Tejas/Shatabdis etc. so in hindsight, MDU-TPJ or TEN passengers wanting to change over to another train from MAS would be more benefitted by taking 6128 Koodal which at least reaches MS at 8.45 pm.


seems like this train is going to be a competitor for Omni buses and Flight. this cannot be considered as connecting train for SL passengers

High-speed Tejas train set to be inaugurated on 1st March

The Railway Officials have informed that the high-speed Tejas Express, scheduled to run between Chennai an Madurai, is all set to start on 1st March.

The Southern Railway has already announced that a high-speed train will be run between Chennai and Madurai.

The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, visited Tirupur on 10th February. It was expected that Tejas Express will be inaugurated during this period. However, only Chennai Metro Rail Expansions Project was inaugurated during this date. Tejas express was not inaugurated.

In this scenario, it was expected that Tejas Express might be inaugurated when Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he visited Kanyakumari on 19th February. However, this Kanyakumari trip by the Prime Minister has been postponed to 1st March. So, it is gathered that the Tejas Express might be inaugurated on 1st March.

Tejas Express has been designed with all the latest facilities to run at high speeds.

A much hyped train from Railway Officials end, but now SR officials are not even interested in announcing the inaugural date for this train. This is not the first Tejas train to ply in India waiting for PM to formally inaugurate it. If PM is not available, call some other MP/politician (if SR feels it is actually required) to inaugurate it.

You are wasting the available public resources (Tejas Express Rake) for more than 3 months without utilizing it for the passengers benefit.

Here in Delhi UP, the delay in inauguration of the New Bus Adda-Dilshad Garden metro extension has caused a lot of resentment, because side by side the Hindon civilian airport inauguration is sought to be combined with it. I think sometime in March, as only 4 days remain including today in February, the PM will come for some election-related meetings when he might inaugurate the Tejas. In fact, a better preference would be, as the Financial Express reports that the Train 18 sleeper rake is being manufactured which will be ready in 2-3 months for operation as one of the Rajdhanis.... It would be better if a Train 18 CC set is given to SR for being operated as MS-MDU intercity or Tejas.

Tejas and/or VB Exp are not exactly vote catchers. In a socialistic democracy like ours, being pro-poor is expected to bring in more votes. The clientile of Tejas/VB exp seldom turn up to vote, preferring to enjoy their holiday more often then not. An antyodaya would have made electoral sense, as per conventional wisdom.

Whatever it might be, they must inaugurate this train before the announcement of election dates (i.e before the election code of conduct comes into force).Otherwise, it will not be operational for another 3 to 4 months till the elections are over.

In the meantime, anything may happen ,even SR zone may also be interested in transferring this Tejas rake to some other zone.
