SOUTHERN RAILWAY INSTALLS “MAGIC BOX” WIFI ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM IN TEJAS EXPRESS
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 complains 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.
