In addition to all the above facilities, the refurbished trains also come with newly-designed bags with extra pockets for holding mobiles, mirrors with LED lighting, vinyl-wrapped toilet doors, epoxy-coated toilets, and polished commodes and basins to tackle odour.

Operation ‘Swarna’ will soon be extended to three other trains of Howrah-New Delhi Rajdhani Express, and two trains of Sealdah-New Delhi Rajdhani and the Howrah-Ranchi Shatabdi Express, reported the Economic Times.
