April 15 (TravelAndy): Japan will run the world’s first ever invisible train by 2018, said reports.

The trains will have a semi reflective outer surface to create the illusion of invisibility.

The interiors of the train will have a living-room like décor.

The current Red Arrow commuter train of Japan is going to remodeled as the much awaited ‘ghost train’ or the invisible train.

After the popularity of bullet trains, these invisible trains are expected to draw visitors across the globe to Japan.

“We want to not just design the shape and form of a means of transportation, but express a new value for the limited express that is created together through participation with everyone. We aim for a design that features spaces, atmosphere and appearance such that spending time on the limited express will itself be a destination goal,” Seibu railways told News.com.au
