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
Yes sir. Clicked by me yesterday
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
ya bookings opened yesterday its self. As of no official press release on this special. Tomorrow first trip mostly empty both sides.
