Food and Drink on a Train

Enjoy Our Onboard Catering Services, Or Bring Your Own Food

Enjoying a meal while you watch the world go by, it is one of the best things about train travel, whether you bring your own snack or treat yourself to something onboard.

Many Train Companies have onboard catering facilities. These can include trolley services, counter buffet services and restaurant cars. The longer the journey, the more likely that there will be food and drink available on board.

You are always welcome to bring your own food too. Why not have a little picnic onboard! Or share a birthday cake with friends!
