The Araku Valley from a See-Through Train! Railways to Launch Second Vistadome Coach

The Araku Valley from a See-Through Train! Railways to Launch Second Vistadome Coach

The new see-through coach has arrived in Mumbai, and will give the passenger an amazing panoramic experience of the view outside.

Imagine travelling through the thick forests of Araku Valley, enjoying a panoramic view of the green fields, the coffee gardens and the hill sides, while being inside a see-through train!

This will be possible with the newly-arrived glass-roofed Vistadome rail car in Mumbai. The Central Railway will put it into service as soon as the route and fare are decided.

Central Railway General Manager, D K Sharma, told Mid Day, “The specially-designed Vistadome air-conditioned coaches are the first-of-its-kind in Indian Railways, with large glass windows and an observation lounge that offer passengers a panoramic view of the sites along the rail route.”

He added that the most interesting feature is the roof which has electrically-controlled opalescence that can be made transparent to get a panoramic view of the journey. There is also a special observation lounge that has an even better view. There will also be a multi-tier luggage rack, he told the publication.

Other features the train will boast include pushback seats that can swivel 180 degrees, automatic sliding compartment doors and LED lights.

On April 17 this year, the Railways had introduced the Vistadome see-through coach attached behind the Visakhapatnam-Kirandul passenger train, which then gets detached at Araku.

It has not yet been decided behind which train this particular coach, that has arrived in Mumbai, will be attached.
