VISAKHAPATNAM: The much-awaited tourist friendly Vista dome coach is ready to chug for the first time on railway tracks from Visakhapatnam to Araku on Sunday. "At present, only one coach has come.
Another one will arrive in the next 15 days. Once put into service for passengers, the coaches will be attached to the existing Vizag-Araku-Kirandul passenger train. They will be detached at Araku in the morning and attached again when it returns in the evening. The fare of these coaches will be higher than the existing general fare,"
Vistadome coach is
specially designed with a single large size look-out window at the observation lounge from where tourists can get a panoramic view.
The coach is fully air-conditioned and provided with glassed-in domed ceiling, automatic sliding doors, rotatable chairs, double reclining seats and a multi-tier luggage rack at the end of the coach.

It looks like some sort of a hybrid coach. The seats, window and shell are LHB like, bogies and coupling is ICF

Confirmed by officials it will run with 58501. The coach will be detached at Araku and return with 58501. I am sceptical of the occupancy in the reverse direction as 58502 is always late. Also, the coach is given a separate number on irctc as 00501 and the Vistadome is given EC status

Earlier GHY LTT KARMABHOOMI exp used to run between TATA and LTT with all unreserved coaches. Later SL and AC coaches were given to the train due to less patronage but again IR gave a whole unreserved train in this route in the form of ANTODAYA.....seems like IR didn't performed any survey about the success of these trains.......

But, the need is more on sectors where you do not find even place to climb on people. To make it worse, do not drink water or else you will not find a toilet.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
