Dense fog in north India delays train services

Thick fog in the northern parts of the country has resulted in train services being delayed by at least 9 to 10 hours. “Trains coming from Delhi, Nizamuddin, Jammu Tawi, Patna and Gorakhpur are running 9 to 10 hours behind schedule. The Nizamuddin-Goa Express (12780) is running late by 10 hours. The Jammu-Tawi Jhelum Express (11078) is late by nine hours and the Nizamuddin-Kopargaon (12148) is running late by 5 hours,” said Manoj Jhawar, PRO of the Pune railway division.

Businessman Navneet, who is travelling with his family to Pune from Mathura, said, “The wait has been endless with the Jhelum Express being delayed for more than nine hours. The facilities in the train are not up to the mark and we are now hoping to reach Pune only by 9pm on Friday,” he said over the phone.

Kundan Singh, who had booked a ticket on the Duronto Express, said, “The train was supposed to arrive from Nizamuddin at 6:15am, but it arrived at 11am. Then, it left Pune station after 12pm. The fog is in the north, but why was the train delayed in Pune? Singh asked.
Earlier this week, officials from the Northern Railways had said that fog safety devices were being installed on trains to prevent delays. The device alerts engine drivers of any hurdles ahead on the rail tracks.
