Eastern Railways refurbishes two old train coaches into restaurants

The two restaurants were constructed by revamping two MEMU coaches and is open for both railway passengers and the general public.

Eastern Railway's Asansol Division has transformed two obsolete coaches into two swanky restaurants – Chai-Chun and Wow Bhojan.

The two restaurants were constructed by revamping two MEMU coaches and is open for both railway passengers and the general public.

The move is expected to help the division boost its coffers.

While Chai-Chun will be offering tea and snacks will be served, Wow Bhojan is a proper 42-seater restaurant, offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Notably, this is not the first such venture of Railways. The Chennai Express in Tamil Nadu was the first rail coach turned into a restaurant by the Indian Railways and a similar initiative was taken by the Madhya Pradesh Tourism Department in 2015.

The East Central Railway (ECR) zone had also earlier modified an unused coach into a cafeteria.
