As part of the Railways Ministry's "Operation Swarn", new coaches are being introduced in passenger trains to improve aesthetics and comfort levels.

"In a bid to enhance travelling experience and riding comfort of its passengers, we have refurbished the Rajdhani Express," Ravinder Bhakar, chief spokesperson of Western Railway, said.

According to Bhakar, the refurbished coaches have anti-graffiti coated designer vinyl wrap in the passage, entrances, toilets and ceilings, as well as a new paint scheme on its wall panels.

"The seating area has been spruced up giving a pleasing ambience and better travelling experience. LED lights have been provided in the coaches and washrooms for better ambience and illumination. It would also help in reducing energy consumption," the official said.

He informed that paintings and photographs depicting the monuments and cultural heritage of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Delhi had been placed in the coaches.
