Mysore, Aug 5: The South Western Railways have come up with a new idea of entertaining its passengers.
Now, Mysore-Bangalore Chamundi Express will have an onboard audio-video entertainment system installed from Thrusday, Aug 5 to enhance the travel experience of passengers.
South Western Railway Mysore Divisional Manager B B Varma said that the Chamundi Express was all geared up for the inauguration. Apart from issuing timely station alerts, live news would also be telecast in due course. Each coach would have four digital screens to facilitate passengers to view the programmes.
Under the facility, each bogie will have colour LCD screens and audio systems through which music albums and films of all languages, including educative wildlife documentary films will be shown.
Short films about the Railway Department, films of general information and awareness and advertisement of Focus Global Company, will be displayed.
Once commissioned, the Chamundi Express would be the first non-Shatabdi train to have this facility in the Country.
In the second phase of the project, the audio-video facility will be introduced on Mysore-Bangalore-Tipu Express, Bangalore-Hubli Inter-city Express and Shimoga-Bangalore Inter-city Express.
