Already there are trains from HWH to take care of karagpur if there aren't sufficient then new trains can be introduced from HWH. Let enroute towns/cities also have connectivity which have huge demand and considerable number of travellers ate using road transport. Railways is losing their share of traffic from Vsp up to Nellore because of lack of dedicated train.

Let it to originate from VSKP and be extended up to Mysore via Perambur. So that in one shot Madras, Bangalore, and Mysore would be covered.

What is the use of running a passenger between vskp NLR when travellers want express trains from vskp to chennai and Bangalore. Tirumala is always packed and runs till tirupati and other trains which pass through SCR have feable quota to chennai and Bangalore. SWR has specially designated timings on weekends to see that both sides it used fully. Leaving blore on Friday evening and arriving back to blore on Monday morning.

Great! I think ICF manufactured this.
The viewing deck has splinter type of holding bar like in Metro coaches.
Seats looks fixed. I thought rotatable will be like - space between 2 seats and seat by default would face sidewards towards window.

Present ticket cost is Rs30/- from VSKP to ARK for Kirandul Passenger.

What are exactly vistadome coaches?? How many seats are available in it? What's the maximum speed these trains can run? Are they coming under LHB or ICF?

Re# 2240648-23            Tags   Past Edits
If at all they are run on the Delhi-Agra route, they should be fit for the usual 110kmph operations as they seem to have the same bogie structure as the normal ICF coaches. ICF coaches can be easily cleared for 120kmph operations as long as some maintenance norms are met. Since this is a tourist coach that won't see very rough use, there won't be any hurdles in meeting slightly more rigorous maintenance norms. So, it won't be a surprise (Neither is it a technical hurdle) if they are cleared for 120kmph operations 'if' operated on any of the high speed routes.
As others have pointed out, they do not have any special high speed features, as they
...
more...
are for the casual tourists. Speed-wise, they are just the standard coaches. Whatever speeds the usual rolling stock can run at, so can these coaches. No exclusive features on that end.

These coaches are not designed for high speeds. These are specially designed for tourism, released as tourist coaches. Any where in the world mostly these tourist coaches runs at less speed only not at high speed. The purpose of these coaches to get the feel the nature.
Next set of coaches going to inaugurated at Kashmir and later some part of north east.

I did not say they will run fast at MPS "always". I said they will need to be fast in clearing the mainline if needed. Also like I mentioned, in the above post "what if" it is run on Konkan route?

What is the use of connecting cities when already AP AC connects Vskp BZA sections. Just think who I'll be interested to travel from tirupati NLR via vskp raipur whichbus circuitous route when you they are trains running in lesser routes.
