Take a look at world's first glass-bottom 'Sky Train'

A demonstration train was rolled off the production line from Chengdu, Sichuan Province.

China has rolled out the world's first-ever glass-bottomed sky train, which would enable commuters to take a 270-degree view of the picturesque landscape of the country.


The train also marks China's maiden attempt at renewable energy suspension railway demonstration.


A demonstration train, which resembles a country's most popular animal- Panda, was rolled off the production line from Chengdu, Sichuan Province on June 26.


According to CGTN, the sky train encompasses glass panelling on three sides of the cabinet. The upper limit of passengers who can commute in each carriage is set at 120 with each ticket coasting one-sixth to one-eighth of a regular subway.


Driven by new renewable energy resources, the train is greener as compared to the other high-speed trains that run across China.


The train is mainly developed by Zhongtang Air Rail Technology and has been demonstrated as a part of the Dayi Air-rail project, which is said to be the world's first new-energy travel air-rail demonstration line.
