A railway carriage with a glass or plastic floor, permitting the occupants to see the track under the carriage, the wheels or bogies, and all the cabling and pipework.

That's it.

       Angle of view might be more interesting with a periscope or a moveable webcam and large flat display. Is structural intergrity a problem.
