A Vistadome coach which has glass panels in the roof to provide tourists with all-round views on scenic lines was launched on the Vishakhapatnam – Araku route on April 16.
Two Vistadome coaches have been built for the route by the Integral Coach Factory in Chennai. As well as the glass ceiling, they have rotating seats, LED lighting and a GPS-based passenger information system. Similar vehicles are planned for introduction on other scenic routes.
‘The long cherished dream of Vishakhapatnam tourists to travel in Vistadome coaches with wide windowpanes has become a reality,’ said Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu when he flagged off the first service via a teleconferencing facility. ‘The objective here is to offer tourists to enjoy the scenic beauty, not only at destination, but also en route to picturesque Araku Valley.’
