To provide a unique dining ambience to the passengers, Northeast Frontier Railway has been opening Rail Coach Restaurants at its major stations and points.

These restaurants have been opened in the vacant space in the circulating area providing dining opportunities to both the rail passengers as well as the general public.

These Rail Coach Restaurants have gained popularity among travellers and the public.

Sabyasachi De, CPRO of NF Railway said that Northeast Frontier Railway has converted some of its old train coaches, which are not fit for use, with the idea of 'recycling - reuse'.

"As of now, 13 coach restaurants are operational in the entire NF Railway. Eight coach restaurants in Katihar, two in Alipurduar and one each at Rangiya, Lumding and Tinsukia are already being set up and both rail passengers and the general public are enjoying the unique dining experience," Sabyasachi De said.

He further said that moreover, 62 locations over Northeast Frontier Railway have been selected for introducing such coach restaurants.

He also said that these restaurants aim to cater to the needs of passengers and the public apart from generating non-fare revenue for railways.

This initiative of NF Railway is also expected to create employment for both skilled and unskilled workers.
