See-through Trains to Operate Andhra & Kashmir from Year End

1. Indian Railways Planning to Introduce Glass-Domed Rail Coaches

With joint cooperation from India’s Ministry of Tourism, Indian Railways is planning to introduce glass-domed rail coaches in Andhra Pradesh and Kashmir from this year end. Indian Railways expects to get hand over the glass coaches by the November end, and then they will be deployed in Kashmir and Andhra Pradesh. The glass-domed coach train will run from Visakhapatnam to Araku Valley in Andhra Pradesh.

The project has been mooted for a couple of years, but due to several safety fears it has held back for the introduction. The Vizag-Araku railway line has 50 over tunnels and valleys in dense forests where falling boulders is a great fear for the glass-coach. The train will also pass through tribal areas where a traditional festival called Pjjoro involves throwing mud and stones at the passing trains. But, despite all obstacles, Govt. has finally taken the decision to make progress in this project with some added safety measurements.
