STEEL EXPRESS Pantry Services. In ICF times a huge menu was for offer to all it's passengers from Sugarfree Coffee to Diet Coke, from Chicken Cutlet with Bread Butter to Finger Chips,from Lassi to Chips and from Cake, Pakoras to Noodles. After LHBfication the Pantry no longer exists. They still have the same items in their list but you may not get all at a time. One day you may get Paneer Pakora the next day you may not but the quality of the food is unchanged. Importantly this is one of those trains which follows IRCTC Menu and price lists. Each and every packed item is sold at MRP rates. No over Charging. You will get exact ₹3 change if you pay a ₹10 note for a cup of coffee and you will get a bill for the same if asked for. Catering boys are well behaved, that is why
Looks like SER handled train pantry cars are following IRCTC rate card and MRP seriously. Observed this in 12825 too. The tea was rs 10 but the glass was bigger one. Pantry guys returned the change without any fuss if the MRP figure was not a round figure. No jhik jhik of no change and moving away. Nice to see SER following it. Hope it is followed in other trains and zones too.
When they don't have change they give that digestive biscuit pack. I am talking of BBN Janshatabdi here. They give change too but if they don't then Biscuits 🙏
Good morning time option to go towards Jasidih, Patna side from Tata, Purulia, Joychandi-Adra, Asansol side and the punctuality is very good also.Gets only of 25-30 minutes delayed in a busy route like this. Popularly known as only 'Super' Express.
But even Ac coaches become Gen in this train😁

I'm Sure TTE Must Be Doing Nothing ?
Even if he tells something the unauthorized passenger don't listen to him
