New Delhi: The Northern Railways on Sunday announced rescheduling of scores of trains even as 50 of them reached the capital several hours behind schedule despite improvement in visibility.

The rescheduling of as many as 23 trains and delays of several others were due to foggy weather conditions prevailing in the regions of north India, according to a Northern Railway spokesperson.

Among the trains rescheduled were New Delhi-Puri Neelanchal Express, New Delhi-Guwahati North East Express, Delhi Jn-Kolkata Lal Quilla Express, Hazrat Nizammudin-Mumbai Central August Kranti Raj among others.

The trains running late for more than 3 hours included Jayanagar-Delhi Jn Saryu Yamuna Exp, Malda Tn-Delhi Jn Farakka Express, Islampur-New Delhi Magadh Express and Jammu Tawi-New Delhi Andman Exp among others.

Railways had earlier announced cancellation of about 19 trains till January 31 to tackle the situation.

The Northern Railway had already incurred a loss of Rs 10 crore last week alone due to cancellations, the spokesperson said.
