We all know the Palace On Wheel hotel or Maharajas’ hotel and the attraction is the hotels are in trains.
Now, the Mumbaikars will soon be able to enjoy the hotel on wheels theme, as Central Railway is coming up with hotel luxuries in a railway coach.
Central Railway’s PR Officer, Shivaji Sutar informed, “A discarded coach will be allotted through open tender to set up a Restaurant On Wheel that will most likely become landmark eating house place in South Mumbai.
The decision was taken after the railway board has 2 years ago asked Zonal railways to start theme eateries by refurbishing old coaches. CR will gain 28 Lakh by starting this theme.
The coach, the track and the draining process will be provided by Central Railway.
CSMT’s side entrance P D’mello has been selected owing to its ample space apt for accommodation. Additionally, this entrance is not too famous among passengers who prefer road transport.
This project will give a unique experience for all the Mumbaikars. The coach will consist of 50 customers but they will also arrange a table beside the coach. The place also offers great parking plots.
To popularize the location, CR has also set up heritage gulley on ‘World Heritage Day’.
