if I were to travel from NDLS to NJP, i'd prefer this train or a guwahati rajdhani... this train is one of the most important trains of NFR with less number of stoppages..

I travelled on this train about six months ago. Till then, there was no pantry car attached to it.
I can vouch that atleast the 2A and 3A coaches are clean. (There is only one 2A coach and one 3A coach). Always pulled by a WDM 2A loco from the new guwahati shed.
Im again travelling on it on the 15th December.... Can anyone confirm whether a pantry car has been attached to this train (coz ive heard rumours about it... though its a different that everytime i travel, i always hear
this rumour only to be disappointed)?? Its too long a journey without a pantry car.

:( :( No Sir, this train still doesn't have a pantry car :( I called up 139 and they confirmed it. But according to them, train has many railway vendors who provide food all through out the journey. Yeah, tell me about it!!!! :(
Last time i traveled on this train, I bloody had to go hungry almost half the journey.
Wonder why the railways don't provide a pantry car for this train??? (yeah yeah.. i know since it runs only once a week, thus it is not profitable..)

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
