A train journey with a fantastic view? It is very likely that the number of vistadome coaches on the Mumbai-Goa route will be increased! What are vistadome coaches anyway?
They have seats that can rotate, sliding doors, huge windows, LED lights, chairs that can be pushed back, and even a glass roof top! This allows passengers to soak in mesmerizing views of rivers, waterfalls, valleys, and more. It’s no surprise that vistadome coaches have become popular.
They were first used in the Mumbai-Madgaon Janshatabdi Express in the year 2018. The wider view of the scenery is what attracts passengers. 31,821 people used the vistadome coaches in the Pragati Express, Janshatabdi (CSMT-Madgaon-CSMT), Deccan Queen, and Deccan Express from April to July 2022. Rs 3.99 crore was obtained from this.
Those who travel on the Mumbai-Pune route in vistadome coaches get remarkable views of the Western Ghats.
