Indian Railways is transforming old coaches into swanky themed restaurants! Indian Railways has launched its “first” ‘Restaurant on Wheels’ for passengers, tourists and locals of Asansol in West Bengal. Now you can enjoy lunch, evening snacks and fine dining at Indian Railways’ ‘Restaurant on Wheels’.
The unique aspect of the swanky ‘Restaurant on Wheels’, which sets it apart from other eateries, is that the cafe has been developed from old, over-aged MEMU sub-urban train coaches, Indian Railways said in a statement.
The Eastern Railway’s Asansol Division made the effort of converting two old MEMU coaches into two themed aesthetically pleasing restaurants in just 3 months. Eastern Railway, a section of India Railways, achieved the final outcome after following a few simple steps. First, it identified the two “Condemned MEMU coaches”.
Then those coaches were transported to the site. Provision of platform and placement of coaches were finalised. Subsequently, the interior furnishing works began. A tea boutique has been developed named ‘Chai-Chun’, the restaurant is called as ‘Wow Bhojan’.
