Traveling through the snow capped mountains and the beautiful scenery in Kashmir is going to be more engaging with the new upgrade in trains.
What Is It?
Talking about the Visatadome coaches from Mumbai to Goa, now Kashmir tourism has introduced the Vistadome coaches for Kashmir trains as well. So now you can enjoy the serene hills and beautiful surroundings of Jammu and Kashmir through glass-roof ceilings inside the train. Not just that, they are also introducing rotatable seats and you will be able to observe these upgrades by May 2018.
What Do We Know?
IRCTC will be introducing these see-through glass coaches alongside J&K tourism department. It will be a 40 seater coach to give the passengers an experience of a lifetime.
