Tejas Express, which is the newest addition to the fleet of the Indian Railways is actually the first train in the network to be run by a private player. Though there are many options to travel from Lucknow to Delhi, be it bus, train or air, Tejas Express ups the game by letting you get from one city to another in just 6 hours and all in the lap of luxury. Read on to know more about this privately run train.

Features of the train

The train is expected to have world class facilities that can rival any aircraft. For one, the chair car in Tejas Express has plush, wide seats that will make your journey a breeze. The back of the seats have a small display that shows vital information and can play any pre loaded movie. Adding to that is the fact that your train ticket also lets you use the on board wi-fi which is especially beneficial if you're low on mobile data.

One complaint that almost everyone has with Indian Railways trains is that the washrooms are mostly in a pathetic state. Tejas Express keeps a check on that as well, with the new modular bio toilets which ensure that the waste is properly disposed off. Apart from that, Tejas Express also checks all the boxes when it comes to general convenience. With CCTV cameras and LED lightings, it is spoiling us for choice and no other train journey will be like one on this.

Details of the train

As for the trains themselves, there will be two which will ply between Lucknow and Delhi- train number 12585 and 12586. Though there is no shortage of trains, along this route, the new one will come as a boon for those that have to regularly commute between these two places and not spend a bomb on air tickets.

The trains will run everyday from 6:50 AM in Lucknow and 3:35 PM from Delhi. Since the trains have all the facilities one would want, you don't even miss the aircrafts.
