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.
