AURANGABAD: The presence of fog in parts of north India continues to affect the Sachkhand Express, a long-distance train, witnessing yet another disruption in its schedule on Monday.
The popular train (number 12715) between Nanded and Amritsar departed at 3pm instead of its earlier scheduled timing of 9.30am. Since December 7, the Sachkhand Express has witnessed two cancellations and four delayed journeys because of the adverse weather conditions in north India.
Apart from the Sachkhand Express, the Nanded-Sriganganagar Express and the Mini Sachkhand Express have also faced disruption in schedule for a few
days this month.
An officials from the Nanded division of the South Central Railway (SCR), said that the average speed of the Sachkhand Express has been getting reduced because of the fog.
The slowing down of the train speed has been causing a delay in total journey time of the Sachkhand Express. "We have been taking all possible efforts to make up for the delays and run the train as per schedule, but in the process the schedule is getting partially affected," a railway official said.
He added that cancellations were inevitable when time lost was beyond certain limits.
The Sachkhand Express, which has a travel time of around 34 hours and 50 minutes, has an average speed of 60 kilometres per hour.
The train, in its 2,083-kilometre journey, has a total of 34 halts.
