Food is served by Local Vendors. Food is tasteless, below average quality. Better to carry your own food.

I am a frequent traveller in train. Not even single train/caterer thinks about quality of Food. All the food which i had taken is tasteless. Also the price is more than wat was declared by IRCTC.
Even i asked why you guys are overpriced of each food items.. the reasons are,, sir, the pantry car is not in this train.. or sir this is third party.. or rate increased.. bla blas..
i don think Indian railway will take action on this.. none of the caterer is genuine in price and quality of
...

food.

In Sleeper coaches: Worst maintenance. Toilet is unclean, unhygienic. Water problem is there. Very bad treatment for this train.

the best train to travel from kolkata/asansol to gorakhpur. maintains good speeed upto jhajha. gets delayed by an hour after jhajha due to conjestion ahead by the sealdah-ballia express. if on time it may be lucky enough to overtake the ballia. usually reachers gorakhpur about 40 mins late.
