To go Guwahati, always prefer this train. Because Saraighat is a Good Train and 85% coaches are 2014-15 Made. Any other trains between Kolkata and Guwahati except Kamrup didn't have a Pantry Car. Food was Excellent in Saraighat. Saraighat is Not a Normal Superfast, it is a Super Deluxe Express.
Wrong Said Kamrup has Pantry Car Service and its NFR ISO Certified Train and The Service and Food Quality is Best I always Prefer this Train while not having Rervation in Ledo/DBRG ICE between GHY and AGI also Travel between HWH and AGI even now KOAA DBRG SF have Pantry Car
One of the finest train i have ever travelled. Majority of the coaches were new ones fitted with bio toilets & charging points were present in each coupes.Coaches were very well maintained & cleaning staffs had done a good job. They sprayed room freshners & even sprayed insect killer when we complained about mosquitos & small cockroaches around our berth.
Although it happens to be one of most loved and favorite trains
Over the time after getting new coaches, Saraighat has improved from leaps and bounds in terms of cleanliness for sure.....
Earlier it was extremely pathetic in terms of cleanliness
Pantry car should be replaced by passenger coach
Pantry Car surely serves its purpose
Of course it does, bt its jus a matter of dinner. People can manage a meal anyhow. But if it could carry 72 passengers extra, in my opinion would be more useful. There are trains that run 3 days without pantry car. For Koaa ghy stretch, pantry is not a must have necessity
