It is, indeed, an interesting idea. There is also a restaurant in Bhopal called Shan-e-Bhopal which is modelled on a railway coach. Here is an article in HT click here

While we are on the subject of rail restaurants. Here is a restaurant in Prague which has a minature train running within it. click here
''Vytopna Restaurant at Wenceslas Square offers good food and drinks at reasonable prices. But its unique attraction is a 400m miniature railway which runs around the entire restaurant, and even down the centre of the tables you sit at.
This is no gimmick, the technology employed is complex. The restaurant's owners are passionate about traditional railways and have developed miniature train networks for years.''

If you, or others, have further interest. Here is a youtube on the same restaurant. You can have a better look of the working model of the minature railway which actually delivers drinks in glasses and collects the empty ones. Here it is, I hope it shows up correctly: click here

I was surfing on the net and found out that there are many railway coach restaurants in England. Here is one: click here This was established in 1985 and is certainly older than the Bhopal one. It even has coaches which have rooms for staying

No need to say Sorry
Sorry, I forgot that UK has standard gauge and in all probability the railway coach restaurants are in standard gauge coaches.

Just had a word woth my cousin. He said that work is going on. Platform and shed has been constructed. But there is some conflict of Location. Planning of shifting it into Atal Park, Indore is going on, to attract more people. Which has less chance in current location, so work is on hold temporarily.

Rather unfortunate, but then rules should not have been flouted.Seeing two coaches being demolished is not a nice sight

Pravas' coaches were not real IR / ICF coaches (they didnt buy old condemned coaches and convert them to restaurant. They were locally fabricated by some contractor and given the shape and look of railway coaches.

One gets good (not excellent) quality PAV BHAJI at SUR station in the mornings for breakfast at affordable prices. Sold on almost all platforms. Worth trying.

The lodging facility at Solapur in the IRCTC Retiring Room is good except for the following problems:-
1. The rooms are very noisy i.e. the commuters feel the Announcer is inside the room for all the 24 hours. The rooms should be sealed with noise proof Glass so that the commuters can have a good night's sleep. As this is a busy station, the announcements blare through the night along with Engines of the passing trains also honking.
2. The Door frames are covered with transparent glass leading to no privacy. The Door

frames should be covered with Glazed glass as in other stations or an opaque wooden door should be fitted to restore privacy.
3. The Jan Aahar stall does not have Meals - Thali, etc and Breakfast items and commuters have to fend for themselves.

Alight here for Akkalkot (Shree Swami Samarth Mandir), Pandharpur (Shree Vitthal mandir), Tuljapur (Shree Tuljabhavani mandir), alongwith local Shree Siddheshwar mandir. Usually passengers do all these in a SAT, SUN 2 DAY TRIP, which also includes shopping for textile products, which Solapur is famous for.
