RailRestro Enters Into a Whole New Way of Catering Through Food Outlets
PATNA, India, January 17, 2018/PRNewswire/ -- It all began with the release of CAG reports on the on-going catering service of the Indian Railways which slammed the 'Pantry Car' model from being functional. The food served under such delivery model was declared as un-safe for human consumption. The on-going e-catering service model joined hands with prevalent e-catering service providers like RailRestro to keep the wheels moving.
(Logo: click here )
E-catering services cater to food availability for people who book their food online while traveling in train. The growing awareness towards e-catering services and food options available needed further focus on multiple locations that were yet to be covered.
Expansion Through Food Outlets Across Top 30 Locations.
RailRestro is planning to cover top 30 locations through food outlets. These food outlets would help people who are traveling via Indian railways, to avail hygienic food during train journey. Such food outlets would be opened in all top 30 locations, which include:
Vijayawada (BZA). Nagpur (NGP). Visakhapatna (VSKP). Itarsi (ET). Bhopal (BPL). Kanpur Central (CNB). Bhusawal (BSL). Jhansi (JHS). Lucknow (LKO). Vadodara (BRC). Mughalsarai (MGS). Surat (ST). Gwalior (GWL). New Delhi (NDLS). Mathura (MTJ). Secunderabad (SC). Ballarshah (BPQ). Bhubaneswar (BBS). Jabalpur (JBP). Ratlam (RTM). Kota (KOTA) Ahmedabad (ADI). Salem (SA). Bilaspur (BSP). New Jalpaiguri (NJP). H. Nizamuddin (NZM). Gondia (G). Satna (STA). Solapur Thane (SUR). Jaipur (JP).
These outlets will serve food of choice to train travellers by this year end. With these initiatives, RailRestro would be able to create awareness towards e-catering services and also reach out to wider offline audience in Indian railway network.
New Locations Added
In an endeavour to extend the reach, RailRestro is also adding newer locations. Some of the newly added locations include:
Food delivery services at Visakhapatnam station. E-catering services at Bhusawal station. E-catering services at Jhansi junction. E-Catering Services at Vadodara station. Food delivery Services at Ballarshah junction. Food delivery at Salem junction. Food delivery at Bilaspur Jn.
On-Board Catering Services- a Whole New Way of E-Catering by RailRestro:
Railrestro is also entering into on-board catering services. With this whole new concept, RailRestro will serve all meal demands in popular non-pantry trains. This will help to curb the suffering of travellers in trains who have to live by other food vending services during their train journey. RailRestro will cover trains that are devoid of food facilities in the form of pantry. RailRestro will cover all the meal requirements for people who would be traveling in such trains. This would help travellers to avail food of their choices either via IRCTC 'Food On Track' App or via Railrestro App. Food ordered via online modes would be delivered to passengers on their seat at no extra charges.
Path Ahead
RailRestro along with IRCTC e-catering is making every effort to offer the best-in-class food during train journey. With on -board catering and food outlets, the problem to avail hot and hygienic food of choice during train journey will be available on one tap. For more info, visit www.railrestro.com today.

The bi-weekly Swarna Jayanti Express from Hazrat Nizamuddin to Visakhapatnam is being patronised by hundreds of Telugus working in Sri Ganganagar in Rajasthan, situated on the Pak border and those from Jammu. The train, which leaves Hazrat Nizamuddin early in the mornings, covers the 2,095 km distance in about 35 hours 40 minutes.
The Telugu people employed in the Army had to travel by autorickshaws from New Delhi to Hazrat Nizamuddin, in the biting cold.
They hope that the railway authorities concerned would extend this train at least up to New Delhi, if

not Sri Ganganagar, for their convenience.
Those who travelled from Nizamuddin by this train on Jan 10 (Wednesday) say this train was not cleaned by the ‘on board cleaning staff’ since Thursday morning till evening.
The coaches were very dirty and were not even cleaned at major junctions like Vijayawada. Ironically, the cleaning staff made a sudden appearance around Tuni, barely a few hours before the train was scheduled to reach its destination – Visakhapatnam Junction.
They wonder what was the point in cleaning the coaches hours before the destination, while passengers were put to inconvenience throughout the day.
The toilets were unclean but the cleaning staff were nowhere to be seen.
The private cleaning contractor, perhaps, wanted to present a clean coach to the officials at the destination.
“This train is also convenient for passengers coming from Vijayawada to Visakhapatnam. I got an SMS on Wednesday night itself that my train is running late by 1 hour and 15 minutes and on Jan 11 early hours another SMS that it was late by 2 hours and asked me to dial 139 for the status. This is very useful service to the passengers,” says another passenger who travelled by the III AC coach.
“The coach was dirty and the cleaning staff was not seen in any of the coaches as I went from coach to coach looking for them. The Pantry Car sold veg. biryani for ?70 but the rice was raw and watery and it was ‘tasteless’, he said.

A vintage crane, which is over a century old, is the new attraction on the Gnanapuram side of the Visakhapatnam Railway Station.
This 10-tonne crane, which is sure to evoke nostalgia among old-timers, would have found its way to the scrap yard but for the initiative of Divisional Railway Manager Mukul Saran Mathur, who got it here all the way from Rayagada in Odisha. Built by Ransomes and Rapier Ltd. at Ipswich in Suffolk, England, in 1908, it was procured by the then Bengal Nagpur Railways (BNR).
The classic crane was in the

Accident Relief Train (ART) formation at Rayagada till about six months ago. It had outlived its utility and was planned to be sold in the scrap market. Mr. Mathur felt that the crane would fetch no more than a couple of lakh rupees in the scrap market and it would be a better idea to convert into a permanent relic on the Gnanapuram side of Visakhapatnam Junction for the benefit of posterity.
The crane was refurbished and given a fresh coat of paint in yellow, green and white. An elevated platform was specially erected, close to the Gnanapuram-entry, and the crane was placed on the rails. A park was developed around the crane with a few trees and grass on the mound. Flood lights have been provided all around for a better view at night.
Many choose the Gnanapuram entry due to wide approach roads from Chavulamadhum junction as also from Gnanapuram Main Road, easy access to motorists coming from Old Town, Gajuwaka and Kancharapalem, as also to those coming from Railway New Colony, Dondaparthy and Dwaraka Nagar areas.
Unlike at the more popular main entrance on the eastern side of the railway station, autorickshaws are allowed close to the entrance on this side. One can walk right onto the platform (PF-8) along with his/her luggage after alighting from cars or autorickshaws. There is ample parking space for cars and two-wheelers as also other vehicles.
RTC buses also stop close to the entrance unlike at the main entrance, where they have to walk for quite some distance from the bus stop to the entrance.
