Train journeys and food have a special connection in India. As the train makes its way through the stations, it introduces us to the local specialities of different places from the litti chokha, in Bihar, to the humble dosa in the South. A cup of tea remains mandatory and makes our journeys more enjoyable. Well, we all like enjoying food on the go and have relished a range of dishes while travelling in trains. But have you ever seen a whole train coach transformed into a restaurant? If not, you could soon witness it at the Andheri and Borivali stations in Mumbai.

The 24x7 restaurant is an old railway coach which has been modified and mounted on rails. It will offer a variety of delicacies just like a normal restaurant but with the feeling of eating inside a train. The interior of the restaurant will be theme-based, which will enhance the overall dining experience, according to Mid-Day.
