DIPHU — To provide a unique dining experience, Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) has introduced rail coach restaurants at major stations. For this, the NFR has repurposed old train coaches no longer suitable for transport, focusing on recycling and reuse.

According to an official statement, currently, 13 coach restaurants operate across NFR, with eight in Katihar, two in Alipurduar, and one each in Rangiya, Lumding, and Tinsukia.

Furthermore, 62 locations across NFR have been earmarked for similar projects. Plans and construction for coach restaurants are ongoing, with seven in Katihar, 13 in Alipurduar, and 14 each in Rangiya, Lumding, and Tinsukia divisions.

Designed to be aesthetically pleasing and to reflect heritage, these coach restaurants provide an engaging experience for families and friends. They offer a range of food, snacks, and beverages for purchase.

These restaurants serve dual purposes: catering to the needs of passengers and the public, and generating non-fare revenue for the railways. This NFR initiative is also anticipated to create job opportunities for both skilled and unskilled workers.
