SRINAGAR:  Kashmir’s all-weather train, known as Vistadome coach, is all set to chug this November, which would give a further boost to the tourism industry here, officials said.

An official from Northern Railways told that the Ministry of Railways has greenlit the deployment of the Vistadome coach train on the Baramulla to Banihal railway track.

“The announcement follows a successful trial run of the Vistadome coach, which has solidified its readiness for service,” the official said. He said the Vistadome coach (train) is expected to start operating in November of this year, and it is sure to be a popular choice for travellers, who want to experience the best of Kashmir scenery.

“The introduction of the Vistadome coach is poised to boost Kashmir’s tourism industry significantly, as visitors and locals alike will find themselves on a comfortable and enjoyable journey through the heart of this picturesque valley. This innovative coach boasts extra-large glass windows, offering passengers uninterrupted views of Kashmir’s breathtaking landscapes,” he said.
