Though this train's last stop is Kolhapur, the same rake will go to Pandharpur as 11052 - SCSMT Kolhapur - Solapur Express with 50 minutes buffer at Kolhapur. So people can travel from Ballari, Hosapete, Koppal, Gadag, Hubballi, Dharwad, Belagavi to Pandharpur (on daily basis) by this train without need of changing train at Miraj.

Pax travelling from Pune to Bjp/Bgk/Gdg/Ubl and unable to get confirmed tickets, has an alternative on every Mondays. Catch 12729 Nanded express at 10 pm from Pune and get confirm seats in this connecting Hubballi train from Daund at 00:15. Useful especially during festive seasons and urgent travels

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

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.

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.

Around 4 years back, I was at Gadag railway station on the way from Vasco to Hampi (If I remember right). I found the idly wada early in the morning at Gadag platform very tasty and inexpensive. Is it still available on the platform?
