Tejas Express, which runs between Chennai Egmore and Madurai had been provided with a ‘MAGICBOX’ which lets passengers access 500 hours worth of entertainment right from their mobiles.
This was done based on passenger feedback who felt a premium train like Tejas should offer entertainment to enhance the joy of travelling. Tejas coaches were initially provided with Seat-mounted infotainment system which was removed after complaints from travellers about its frequent malfunctioning on the run and a railway board instruction to discontinue all seat-mounted infotainment systems.
Railway administration had faced problem in updating its software and content. Wi-fi Entertainment box “MAGICBOX” is pre-installed with movies, kids content, music and Government schemes. It has content in regional languages for the multilingual passengers of Indian Railways. Tejas Express which runs 6 days a week, except Thursday, is maintained by GSN Coaching Depot, Chennai.
