Would you like to purchase some eating things like ice-cream, chips, cold drink samosa etc. in train. I like chips only and my daughters not like anything. I think everything is costly in train than out of train. Therefore I not like much more. Do you like to purchase eating things in train.

I have never bought refreshments in the train, you are right they are stupidly overpriced, what is this nonsense? Before going into the train, I go to "Home Bargains" and I can buy a bottle of water for 19 pence, instead of £1.50, a packet of crisps for 20 pence instead of £1.20 and so on. Even the tuna sandwich is weird to eat there, it leaves smell across the wagon, why do I have to deal with the smell of passengers that want to eat a tuna sub in the train? If smoking is not allowed, that shouldn't be aswell.

No,I don't.Although samosas etc and fruits sold in trains in my area are not costly,but I am concerned about eating them for hygienic reasons.Eating fruits is no problem,but fast or junk foods sold in trains are likely to be harmful.While travelling by train if I feel hungry,I like to take some bananas or oranges,but never buy samosas or any other things prepared by the sellers or at the station canteen.

I always buy cakes, chocolates, chips, biscuits, sweets etc. before boarding train. Everything in train are pretty expensive. Anyhow I have to buy meals from train while travelling by train, that I can't avoid meals since it takes long time to travel from Kolkata from Hyderabad and vice-verse. I avoid buying other things from train. Still on times I need to buy water bottle in train. Coming to buying an ice cream will depend on the weather, if buying it can't be avoided I will buy it.

I am sure you are referring to long distance travel by train. I haven't traveled long distances by train here in our country for a long time. I only traveled train for short distances and food/eating inside the train is not allowed. There food stores outside train station but not costly and sometimes before riding the train I purchased foods or eat something before riding the train.
