SRINAGAR, Nov 16: After first successful leg of trail-run, the railways carried out another leg of trial-run of the train in the Valley from Srinagar to Banihal early in the morning.
The trial has come after the train service remained suspended for more than three months in Valley.
A Railway official told Excelsior today that the trial was conducted which was carried out in a smooth manner and culminated peacefully at Banihal Railway Station. Earlier, as a part of the first leg of the trial, the run was carried out from Srinagar -Baramulla.
“The train will carry out one trip from Baramulla to Banihal tomorrow at 11:35 a.m.; it will be a single trip as it will not return to the station of its departure,” an official said.
The Railways have suffered more than Rs 3 crore loss after its suspension before August 5, post stripping the erstwhile State of J&K of its special status, leading to lockdown for more than 100 days.
