New Delhi:

The see-through train ‘Vistadome’ offering panoramic view of the surroundings was launched on Monday on the Mumbai-Goa route. Passengers were having the luxury to have stunning views of the surroundings.

The Vistadome is expected to be game-changer in the Indian railway industry.

As per reports, the Dadar-Madgaon Jan Shatabdi Express had a special coach with glass-roof Vistadome, rotatable chairs and hanging LCDs.

“A Vistadome (glass-top) coach will be attached to the Jan Shatabdi Express running between Dadar and Madgaon from September 18,” CR’s chief public relations officer Sunil Udasi said.

This special and aesthetically-designed Vistadome air-conditioned coach, is a first-of-its-kind in Indian Railways, he said.

“Commuters travelling on this train will have this special coach with a glass-roof Vistadome, rotatable chairs and hanging LCDs for entertainment. A unique feature of this Rs 3.38 crore 40-seat coach is the double-wide reclining passenger seats that could be rotated 360 degrees for a better sightseeing experience,” Udasi added.

A statement issued by the CR said, the passengers or tourists can now sit relaxed in their seats and enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view from the Vistadome coach, unlike the stereotype train compartments.

This special coach was received by the CR at its headquarters- the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) in the first week of September.
