From The BBC ... every so often there's a story it's had to find a place for on the forum, but it is rail related.

Residents at a Bradford care home can now enjoy the experience of train travel without leaving the building after an eight-seater carriage was installed.

Restaurant car with lovely views out of the 'window' which aligns with the seating and tables.

A proper intercity train has a minimum of 8 coaches, gangwayed throughout, with first at one end, and a full sized buffet car between first and standard.
It has space for cycles, surfboards,luggage etc.
A 5 car DMU is not a proper inter-city train. The 5+5 and 9 car DMUs are almost as bad.
