    Bhopal: Come January and passengers of Shatabdi and Rajdhani trains will be able to watch their favourite serials and movies while travelling. In a smart move, Railways is mulling over to instal television screens on few trains. If all goes well, the New Delhi-Bhopal Shatabdi Express will have the live television facility from January next year.

    shatabdi_288After the 'successful' trial run on the Shatabdi and Rajdhani trains, Duronto and ISO category trains like Bhopal express will be covered. What is more interesting is the fact that passengers can watch shows without any disruption as live TVs will not have any signal problem on the moving train.

    According to DRM Delhi, Ashwini Kumar Lohani, "The procedure of tenders - invited for the installation of TVs in Shatabdi coaches- is at the final stage. By the end of December, tenders will be alloted. Thereafter, the contracts for the installation of TV sets along with dish antena will be given."

    As per the tender document, a 48-inch LCD TV screen will be installed at both sides of each passenger coach of the Shatabdi Express.

    The trial run of live TV on moving train was carried out eight months back on Delhi-Guwahati Rajdhani Express. After successful testing of signals on the long route train, Railways gave the green signal to the project.
