Railways for glass-domed coaches on scenic routes


The best way to reach Araku Valley in Andhra Pradesh is to take a train from Vishakhapatnam — and it’s about to get better. Tourists on this route will be the first in the country to sit inside glass-domed coaches that will allow them to take in the spectacular views along the route.

The train that runs between Vishakhapatnam and Araku will initially have two coaches with windows and roofs made of special shatter-resistant glass to provide an all-round view of the valley to travellers during the four-hour, 130-km journey. Similar services are offered by train operators in Switzerland and the Canadian Rockies.
