Restaurants made out of former railway carriages will be opening in Mumbai's Andheri and Borivali stations.
Along with expanding its network, Indian Railways is building a substantial amount of technology. Indian Railways has achieved a number of new, luxurious coaches and trains in recent years, and work is also being done at railway stations all over the nation. After the success of the city's first "restaurant on wheels," which debuted at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Station (CSMT), the railroads are now preparing to open additional such eateries in the region. "Restaurant-on-wheels with train coaches have been decided upon at the stations of Borivli and Andheri. While the one in Andheri will be at Gate 10, the one in Borivli will be at the north end (Virar-end) of the station, also in the east, according to Western Railway Principal Public Relations Officer Sumit Thakur.
A modified coach mounted on tracks that provides a distinctive fine-dining experience is known as a restaurant-on-wheels. It can hold more than 40 customers. The restaurant's interior is styled so that customers can appreciate the experience of eating in a themed environment.
An unserviceable rail coach is being used to build up the restaurant. According to market rates authorised by Railways, the licensee chooses the restaurant's prices and selection. The restaurant is accessible to both passengers and the general public and offers a variety of cuisine, including pan-Indian, continental, and others.
In addition to adhering to the Food Adulteration Act and other statutory laws, the licensee is expected to keep the approach corridor and its surroundings at their own expense. Portable fire extinguishers will be placed with the idea of safety in mind, and staff members must be trained to use the tools. Officials from the train will periodically check the extinguishers' validity and perform routine inspections.
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) and Nagpur each have a restaurant-on-wheels put up by Central Railway (CR), and so far, those locations have seen about 1,25,000 and 1,50,000 visitors, respectively. According to Shivaji Sutar, chief public relations officer, CR, "The one at CSMT gets about 250 visitors on weekdays and 350 on weekends."
According to Sutar, CR intends to build two more such restaurants in Dadar East and the Lokmanya Tilak Station in Kurla. Five such restaurants-on-wheels, including the one at CSMT, will be located at city stops once they are all operational in the following 12 months.
