The train, after its first journey returned with garbage all around, headphones missing and damaged infotainment screens.
Tejas Express, which was flagged off from Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus on Monday amidst much fanfare returned from Goa on Tuesday. Railway officials were in for a shock after they inspected the train. Even though the department was expecting some sort of damages but the extent of the damage did leave them surprised.
At least 12 of the high-quality headphones provided for the infotainment screens were missing, some screens were found scratched, said railway sources to HT.
The train that can reach speeds up to 200 kmph has several unique features such as infotainment screens, tea-coffee vending machines, vaccuum bio-toilets, touch-free water taps in toilet. But it looks like people would not let it survive in such good condition. We are just cursed to ride on rickety and rusty railway coaches for ever.
