Officials at the Kalka Railways Workshop told Chandigarh Newsline that the plan is to manufacture an 18-seater coach. “We have recently sent a revised drawing of the coach to the railways headquarters. We are waiting for the approval of the drawings,” said the official.
THE SCENIC train ride from Kalka to Shimla is going to become more panoramic. The Northern Railway is planning to introduce a see-through Vistadome coach on the UNESCO World Heritage track. Railway officials said the coach would be manufactured at its workshop in Kalka, but it is still at the drawing board stage.
“As per the plan, we will initially manufacture one coach. It will have large glass windows and glass ceiling and it will give an amazing experience to the tourists travelling in the coach,” Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Ambala, Dinesh Kumar, told Chandigarh Newsline.
