Routes and Timetables of New Tejas, Uday, Humsafar and Antyodaya Trains

Hon. Railway Minister Shri Suresh P Prabhu had announced four more new types of trains for the Indian Railways in the last railway budget, These trains were to be run under the brand names of Tejas Express, Uday Express, Humsafar Express and Antyodaya Express, with the first three being “premium class” of trains, all fully air-conditioned and with premium charges. The Antyodaya express trains will have only second class unreserved accommodation with no extra charges. And now, the first of the routes for these trains have been announced and they have been included in the new Indian Railways Timetable of 2016-17. These trains will hence be the new trains announced for the year 2016-17 because the practice of announcing new trains during the railway budget has been discontinued. Kerala is the only state that does not get even one among any of these premium train services. South Western Railway (SWR) is the only major zone not running any of these new trains.

Details of these trains are given below. Click on the bar with the train name and number to know detailed timetable, days of operation and some information such as distance and time covered, the average speed of the train and so on, in addition to a short review of the train. Within this, click on the train number to know detailed timetable and other details about these new trains, and click on “Route and Stoppages” to view the route of the train on a map. Inauguration dates (when the trains will start running) for all these trains will be announced later. All timetables and stoppages given here are tentative and can change.

Tejas Express Trains

Tejas will be the truly “international” Indian train of today that will be able to match up to the benchmarks set by European rail operators. Tejas trains are day-time Intercity trains with fully Air-Conditioned accommodation only, just like the Shatabdi Express. But with the Tejas, IR intends to take the Shatabdi experience to the next level. First off, Tejas trains will feature their own, custom made and unique liveried LHB rakes whose biggest groundbreaking feature will be automatic doors! They will be faster than Shatabdis, certified to run at 160 kph max speed and guaranteed 130 kph runs on select routes (conditions apply) at average speeds exceeding 80 kph!

The interiors of the coaches will be designed by the NID based on themes of nature and on the lines of plush, European train interiors. And of course, they will feature not just executive-style comforts like WiFi, local cuisine, onboard entertainment (individual seat-back in First AC), vending machine, personalized service and so on. The biggest feature will be, however, automatic doors, the absence of which is the biggest shortcoming of Indian Railways when it comes to rebuilding its image. You can clearly see the doors flush with the frame and without a door handle. The door will probably swing outwards just like the middle doors of Volvo city buses.

Three Tejas trains have been announced, details of which are given below, two of which will be the fastest on their routes. Advertised as “the future of Intercity train travel in India” aimed at people who wouldn’t mind paying the extra buck for speed, comfort, and luxury, Tejas trains will be the flagships and pride of the Indian Railways fleet and unlike anything India has seen on rails until now.

Accommodation: Executive AC Chair Car (First AC), AC Chair Car.

Route and Stoppages: Panvel, Chiplun, Ratnagiri, Kudal, Thivim.

Of course, the most heavily traveled tourist route has to have another intercity train! Runs ahead of the Jan Shatabdi both ways, and shares the same slot of the LTT-Karmali AC weekly one way. Surprisingly, not a superfast and is hardly the fastest train on the route. The MAO Rajdhani takes exactly two hours less to cover the Mumbai - Goa route. Click here for all trains from Mumbai to Goa.

22425/22426 New Delhi – Chandigarh – New Delhi Tejas Express (NR)

Type: Tejas | Fare: Tejas | Distance: 240 km | Halts:| Time: 2h 55m | Avg: 82 kph

Accommodation: Executive AC Chair Car (First AC), AC Chair Car.

Route and Stoppages: None (non-stop).

Covering the 266 km between New Delhi and Chandigarh in just 2 hours and 55 minutes, taking a full half hour lesser than the Shatabdi at an average speed of an enormous 82 kph, the Tejas will not just be the fastest train between New Delhi and Chandigarh but one of the fastest in the country! THIS is what we need!

12585/12586 Lucknow - Delhi Anand Vihar Terminus - Lucknow Tejas Express (NR)

Type: Tejas | Fare: Tejas | Distance: 500 km | Halts: 1* | Time: 6h 15m | Avg: 81 kph

Accommodation: Executive AC Chair Car (First AC), AC Chair Car.

Route and Stoppages: Kanpur Central.

At 6 hours and 15 minutes, this will be the fastest train between Delhi and Lucknow and will also join the exclusive 80 kph+ club! Runs the reverse route to the Shatabdi and takes 15 minutes lesser, it departs one and a half hours after the Double Decker and catches up with it to Delhi and overtakes it to Lucknow, arriving an hour before it.

Uday Express Trains

Uday Express trains are supposed to be high-capacity Air Conditioned Double Decker trains to be run on important routes that experience heavy loads. But we already do have AC DDs, and these trains don’t seem to be those but a different product because Uday trains seem to include both overnight and daytime services. More details of these trains, including their rakes and accommodation types are not available anywhere right now. Three Uday trains have been announced, details of which are given below.

22665/22666 Coimbatore - Bangalore City - Coimbatore Uday Express (SR)

Type: Uday | Fare: TBA | Distance: 380 km | Halts: 6* | Time: 6h 55m | Avg: 54 kph

Days of Service: All days except Monday

  • 22665 SBC Uday Express from Coimbatore CBE to KSR Bengaluru City SBC Timetable: Departs CBE: 0545, TUP: 0630, ED: 0715, SA: 0815, arrives SBC: 1240.
  • 22666 CBE Uday Express from KSR Bengaluru City SBC to Coimbatore CBE Timetable: Departs SBC: 1415, SA: 1750, ED: 1855, TUP: 1940, arrives CBE: 2100.

Accommodation: TBA

Route and Stoppages: Tiruppur, Erode, Salem, Dharmapuri, Hosur, Bangalore Cantonment.

Coimbatore gets its long-standing demand of a dedicated train to Bangalore granted. To run via Dharmapuri and Hosur, this will be the only passenger train to run on that stretch in a three hours interval towards either side. The decision not to run it on a Monday is foolish because it will have heavy demand on Mondays both ways. Southern Railway either wants to pander to the bus lobby or people heading it are plain dumb. Will be the fastest train between Coimbatore and Bangalore.

One wonders how the railways always face a lack of space, track, slots, rakes and everything else to run trains to Kerala from Bangalore but miraculously seem to face no such shortages while starting trains to all other places, even on the same route! Everyone just hates Kerala, don't they?

22701/22702 Visakhapatnam - Vijayawada - Visakhapatnam Uday Express (SCR)

Type: Uday | Fare: TBA | Distance: 350 km | Halts: 6* | Time: 5h 30m | Avg: 63 kph

Accommodation: TBA

Route and Stoppages: Duvvada, Ankapalle, Tuni, Samalkot, Rajahmundry, Eluru.

Another additional intercity express on one of the most heavily traveled routes in India. Will run ahead of the Simhadri and Janmabhoomi and will be one of the fastest on the route, taking an entire hour less than the overcrowded Janmabhoomi. Hopefully, this won't meet the fate of SCR's other two Double Deckers.

22923/22924 Mumbai Bandra Terminus - Jamnagar - Mumbai Bandra Uday Express (WR)

Type: Uday | Fare: TBA | Distance: 813 km | Halts: 11* | Time: 14h 40m | Avg: 55 kph

  • 22923 JAM Uday Express from Mumbai Bandra Terminus BDTS to Jamnagar JAM Gujarat will run on all Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays. Timetable: Departs BDTS: 2355 (M, W, Sa), BVI: 0027 (Tu, Th, Su), ST: 0415, BRC: 0610, ADI: 0755, VG: 0924, SUNR: 1022, WKR: 1120, RJT: 1300, HAPA: 1410, arrives JAM: 1435 (Tu, Th, Su).

Accommodation: TBA

Route and Stoppages: Mumbai Borivali, Surat, Bharuch, Vadodara, Anand, Nadiad, Ahmedabad, Viramangam, Surendranagar, Wankaner, Rajkot, Hapa.

Of course, any new train announced, no matter if it is a new passenger class or Bullet Train, has to have one example running between Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Occupies the slot left empty by some weeklies on some days. But as an overnighter, this will surely be in heavy demand as the Mumbai - Gujarat route is the singularly most heavily traveled interstate train route in the country. Will hopefully take some load off the Saurashtra Expresses and Gujarat Mail.

Humsafar Express Trains

Humsafar Express trains are high-speed long distance express trains with AC 3 tier accommodation only aimed at upper-middle-class people. No, they are not like Garib Rath trains because Garib Raths feature high capacity 3A coaches with 81 berths and side middle berths, while Humsafar trains will have the usual 3A LHB coaches with added features and optional meal service. And also, while Garib Raths have 30% less fare than normal trains, Humsafar expresses will have 30% more fare than normal. Humsafar trains seem to be aimed at lengthy routes between some major cities with the intent of covering important intermediate destinations as well. They all have very aggressive schedules and seemingly high running speeds. Their rakes will be specially designed and painted in unique liveries, but will not be as posh as Tejas.

Ten routes have been announced for Humsafar Expresses, mostly intended to replace Suvidha special trains on their routes. Humsafar trains should’ve been introduced to cater to high-volume, 14-18 hour intercity journeys like Bangalore – Mumbai, Hyderabad – Bangalore, Chennai – Mumbai, Bangalore – Trivandrum, Hyderabad – Mumbai etc, which have people ready to pay, but instead will still be used to run epic cross-country routes from Sriganganagar to Tiruchchirappalli. Sad that IR still cannot get over this fixation of 63 hours cross-country train schedules.

A direct replacement of the currently running 82501/82502 (Suvidha) Premium train on the same days and same timetable.

Accommodation: AC 3 tier only

Route and Stoppages: Asansol, Dhanbad, Gaya, Mughalsarai, Varanasi, Lucknow Charbagh NR, Bareilly, Moradabad, Saharanpur, Ambala Cantonment, Ludhiana, Jammu Tawi.

One of the most underrated routes in the country gets a very well deserved premium service in addition to the horror that is the Kolkata-JAT Express, the excellent Himgiri Express and the overpriced Suvidha. It will be the fastest train between Kolkata and Punjab after Durgiana and Jallianwalabagh and the fastest to Jammu Tawi. This will not replace the Premium on this route.

22887/22888 Kolkata Howrah - Bangalore Yeshwantpur - Howrah Humsafar Express (SER)

Another addition to the extremely successful Kolkata - Bangalore - Kolkata club. Runs almost in the slot of the Kamakhya - Bangalore Premium/Humsafar. However, since it runs on days when the Duronto is already running, it should've been scheduled to cover weekends. Also, it will take three and a half hours more than the Duronto.

12595/12596 Gorakhpur - Delhi Anand Vihar Terminus - Gorakhpur Humsafar Express (NER)

Accommodation: AC 3 tier only.

Route and Stoppages: Lucknow Charbagh NR, Kanpur Central.

Most probably will be the first Humsafar Express to be inaugurated. Will run on one of the highest density and most patronized routes in India. The Gorakhpur Humsafar has an almost perfect timetable, enabling a comfortable overnight journey both ways in the direction of traffic flow, making it the ideal overnight weekender choice. And it is only the second fastest train between Gorakhpur and Delhi!

This will be the first train from the Sriganganagar area to run to anywhere in the south.
