PUNE: If you are travelling by the Mumbai-bound Deccan Queen, there are chances that you might have to do without the famous dining car service of the train as the railway administration has removed its pantry-cum-dining car for maintenance and repairs purposes.
"The coach has been removed on temporary basis and taken to Matunga workshop for maintenance works. It will take about a month to complete technical checks of the coach after which it will be attached to the train again. Meanwhile, another pantry car has been attached to the train to avoid any inconvenience to the passengers," officials told TOI on Tuesday.
for more than 75 years, the Deccan Queen is among the most prestigious and famous trains under Central railway. Known for its punctuality, Deccan Queen is probably the only train under Central railway to have a dining car service where passengers can sit at dining tables while relishing the taste of different food items.
Harsha Shah of Railway Pravasi Group said though pantry car has been removed, the administration should make sure that this doesn't impact the dining service. "Being a prestigious train, the services of dining car should not be stopped even for one month," Shah said.
Shah said there was a need to replace existing rake of Deccan Queen with new rake having more comfortable seats and additional seating arrangements.
Deccan Queen leaves Pune station at 7.15am and returns at 8.25pm.
