The iconic railway terminus of Mumbai, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) adds one more feather to its cap. Central Railway (a zonal railway under the Indian Railways) recently unveiled a ‘Restaurant on Wheels’ on the premises. It will be run by a private licensee.
Located opposite platform number 18, referred to as the Heritage Gully, you cannot miss the bright yellow coach. According to a tweet from Maharashtra Tourism, ‘This is the first Mumbai eatery joint to be open 24/7.’

The fine-dining restaurant named ‘Bogie Wogie’ has been created within a refurbished old railway coach on wheels. The colourful interior has been decorated with railway themed paintings, collages mentioning interesting facts about the railways, and other memorabilia, while the seating is reminiscent of old pantry cars.

Incidentally, the Railway Museum near Howrah Station (the terminal station for Kolkata) too had a restaurant on wheels which was subsequently shut down.
