Here is the list of all the features that the new edition of Humsafar Express will offer its passengers:
1. Keeping in mind the long standing complaint regarding side lower berth by the passengers, a detachable board has been introduced by IR which can be placed on top after joining the two side seats. The move has been put to effect with the consideration that the passengers do not go through the ordeal of backaches.

2.

Remember the weird blue upholstery that our trains had, or still have? The new trains will have refurbished interiors that are on the lighter side. The curtains in the trains are fire resistant as well.
3. Fretting about charging your smartphones? For the first time in AC-3 tier compartments, you will find USB charging points next to the berths.
4. Great news for those who can’t travel without a book! Each berth in the compartment has been equipped with reading materials.
5. Many can relate to the dread of climbing to the upper berth! Making the upper berth climbing arrangement more comfortable, IR has also added a handle on the top berth that will assist passengers while climbing.
6. Making train travel more family-friendly, baby seats have been included in the toilets. This will prove convenient for families travelling with babies and toddlers and make it easier for changing diapers.
7. In another first, a sensor-based men’s urinal based on an NID design has been added in the trains. These toilets have a two-step floor to contain flow of water near the basin.
8. An interesting feature is the colourful anti-graffiti exteriors, which will be accompanied by reflective destination boards that glow in the night as well as reflective 3D numbering.
9. Following suit from the earlier version, each cabin has dustbins, comfortable seats, mobile charging points, a mirror and luggage racks.
10. Vinyl coating has been added to the flooring that will make it easier for cleaning the trains’ floors.
11. Like the previous version, the trains will have toilet occupancy indicators and GPS-based information system that will help catering the passengers better.
12. The central aisle has LED-lighting that also displays the seat numbers.
13. The Humsafar Express has been facilitated with vending machines that will offer tea, coffee and soup.
14.The trains also have the CCTV footage display system along with extensive fire/smoke detection and suppression system.

Minister to flag off Tirupati-Katra Humsafar train

In Tirupati, a programme will be held in which the two MPs, Tirupati MLA and MLCs will attend. Tirupati-Katra Humsafar train will also be flagged off on the occasion for which the reservation of berths was already started.
The fully automatic laundry with a capacity of 2.5 tonne was set up at a cost of Rs 2 crore two km away from Tirupati railway station. They private agency will have to operate it for 10 years and hand it over to Railways. It can wash, dry and iron the linen automatically.
 Per day it can make 2,500 bed rolls with each bed roll consists of two blankets, one pillow cover and one face towel. The cost of each bed roll washing and pressing cost would be Rs 11.58. The laundry was established in 7,750 square feet area. The operator has installed best equipment in the world like washer-cum-extractor,

 flat ironer-cum-feeder and folder and dryers from China-based Dolphin company. Best of the eco-friendly steam boilers for energy efficient and pollution free generation of steam and 25,000 litres of Sintex water tanks commissioned for huge water storage. It will provide quality and fresh linen to the passengers.
Hitherto, the process was being done manually at Ramachandrapuram near Tirupati. From Tirupati, linen should be supplied to 11 trains which the mechanised laundry cannot do. The left over will be sent for manual washing process also. Meanwhile, the much delayed Kadapa-Bengaluru railway line becoming a reality if not immediately but in the near future with the commissioning of Kadapa-Pendlimarri new railway line which is a part of the proposed project on Thursday. 
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will inaugurate the line and also flag off the Kadapa-Pendlimarri DEMU service via remote video linkage. The foundation stone was laid for the 257 km railway line on September 2, 2010 with an estimated cost of around Rs 2,000 crore to be executed in four phases. But, it took almost seven years to complete the first phase of 22 km line between Kadapa and Pendlimarri. 
During phase 2, work from Pendlimarry to Rayachoti will be taken up which will be followed in phase 2B from Rayachoti to Vayalpadu in Chittoor district. It will join the existing line from Vayalpadu to Madanapalle. In phase 3, works will be taken up to Madaghatta on Andhra Pradesh border from Madanapalle and phase 3B from Madaghatta to Mulabagal on the Karnataka border. In the last phase, works from Mulabagal to Kolar would be taken up and join with the Kolar-Bengaluru line. Once completed, this line will be of immense use to the people of western parts in Chittoor district
