Dense fog disrupts train operation

NEW DELHI : Dense fog today badly hit train operations with 70 north-bound trains running behind schedule for several hours, causing inconvenience to passengers.
While the Rajdhani trains coming from Bhubaneswar, Sealdah and Ranchi were running late by about three to four hours, service of other Delhi-bound trains are also being severely affected due to adverse weather, said a senior Northern Railway official.
Magadh Express is running 18 hours late while Poorvottar Sampark Kranti Express is behind schedule by 18 hours. Northeast Express and Mahananda Express are running 12 hours late.
“We have made arrangements for informing passengers about the train position on regular basis besides setting up helplines for public,” said the official, adding “departures of affected trains have been rescheduled.”
Train drivers have been instructed to drive at a slow speed during the foggy condition. (AGENCIES)
