Bhubaneswar: While East Coast Railways (ECoR) cancelled 103 trains and diverted two locomotives on Wednesday in view of the fast approaching Cyclone FANI, three special trains will run from Puri to Shalimar for tourists, passengers and students.
This train has One AC-2 Tier, Three AC-3 Tier, 10 Sleeper Class, Four Second Class Seating and Two Guard cum Luggage Van in its composition. It will have stoppages at Khurda Road, Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Jajpur, Keonjhar Road, Bhadrak, Balasore and Kharagpur.
The train will reach Bhubaneswar around 1.30 PM and will have reserved as well as unreserved accommodation. Similarly, two more trains from Puri to Howrah at 3 pm and 6 pm have also been scheduled.
It is notable to mention here that the State Government has advised tourists to leave Puri as the cyclone is likely to make landfall in the coastal district.
