A typical restaurant car on an Indian long distance train. This photograph was taken after Indian Independence which shows that standards, sadly, were beginning to slip but still pleasant and comfortable enough for a meal. Compare this photograph with the photograph of the one attached to the Imperial Mail. This photograph shows the restaurant car on the Bombay Mail of the South Eastern Railway, successor to the old Bengal Nagpur Railway. Scan provided by Ken Staynor. Accompanies the article on restaurant cars and refreshment rooms of the Raj. (Ken Staynor)
