Such trains have been introduced in foreign countries like Switzerland, which enjoy the patronage of tourists. The first such coach is expected to be rolled out in the month of October 2016 itself. The coaches will be ultra luxurious with rotatable chairs to provide the passengers an aerial view through the partly glass ceiling.
