Another three coaches will be rolled out in December this year, he added.

“The first coach will be tagged in a regular train in the Kashmir Valley while the other two will be part of some train careening through the picturesque Araku Valley (K K Line, Waltair station) on the South-Eastern Railway,” Manocha said.

Railways believe that introduction of trains with glass ceilings – already popular in western countries – will give a fillip to rail tourism in India.
