The Indian Railways has some amazing plans for coaches of luxury train Palace on Wheels. Palace on Wheels was inspired from the royal coaches, used by the kings of Rajputana, Gujarat and the Nizam of Hyderabad as well as the Viceroy of India and is one of the most popular luxury trains in India. While it remains out of reach of most Indians for now — majority of tourists on Palace of Wheels are foreign nationals — it may not always be the case. Even though you may never exactly travel on Palace on Wheels, you will be able to experience the luxury for a short time. If all goes according to plan, some of its coaches that are on display at the Rail Museum will be converted into vintage hotels and restaurants. The proposal has been sent to IRCTC since it is the only body authorized to carry out the task.
