From enjoying the latest Hollywood blockbuster to having a nice body massage in a well equipped spa, railways are planning to introduce a slew of facilities in luxury trains.
Railways are running six luxury tourists trains. They are Palace on Wheels, Heritage on Wheels in Rajasthan sector, Fairy Queen on Delhi-Alwar sector, Deccan Odyssey in Maharashtra, and Buddhist circuit Special covering places linked with Lord Buddha.
Besides, two luxury trains in Karnataka and Rajsthan are slated to be launched
"However, barring the Palace on Wheels, these luxury trains are not drawing enough tourists to make a profit," said a senior railway official.
"That is why, we have proposed certain measures to attract tourists in luxury trains."
Fashion shows, premiering new films, launch of music albums, spas and beauty parlor besides serving best wines are some of the measures being considered for luxury trains, added the official.
