You know the Palace on Wheels? This beauty of a train?
True to its name, the train looks like a palace indeed and offers comforts to passengers that would make them feel like kings and queens.
But the Palace of Wheels has cancelled a scheduled trip for the first time in 34 years. Why? Because of no occupancy.
A TOI report
says that the journey that was scheduled to start today will not go as planned because no one booked a ticket.

The seven nights – eight day trip costs this:
In lean season – September to April
In peak season – October to March
The prices are high because this luxury train can accommodate just 104 passengers and needs only 25 to remain profitable.
