This observation car coach facility with glass roof should be started in Konkan Railways and places that have scenic beauty here in India too. BTW what was the max. speed of this train as American trains are not known for their speed?

Speeds upto 80-90 mph. 130-140 kmph. On that day when I travelled first time it was rerouted due to consutruction. It was rerouted on to a dedicated freight line which had PSR of 60 mph. Second time it was on main line and hit 80-85 mph.

I see. The fastest here is Acela Express. The Acela Express is the fastest train in the Western Hemisphere, with a normal maximum speed of 150 mph (241 kph) on two sections of its route between Boston,MA and New Haven, CT.
