The aim of this design was to guarantee an unforgettable experience of comfort to augment the exhilaration of a dome car ride through a majestic landscape. The upper deck has a service bar and lounge seats with an unhindered view due to slender window columns, a narrow central ceiling, and electronically dimmable panoramic windows. The restaurant, vestibule, and restrooms are located on the lower deck of the train, with a connecting elevator between the decks. The design combines operational requirements with an aesthetic and design quality rarely seen in rail vehicles. The adaptive lighting concept allows for dimmer hues when experiencing nature or dining with enhanced luminosity for cleaning.
