Bhubaneswar: Train services have been disrupted in western Odisha following heavy rainfall.
Sources in the East Coast Railway (ECoR) said that train services in Sambalpur-Deogan, Bargarh and Titlagarh sections have been disrupted due to overflowing of rainwater on the tracks.
As a result, Sambalpur-Rayagada Express has been detained at Barpalli railway station and Ajmer-Puri Express and Ispat Express at Loisingha and Dunguripalli railway stations respectively.
18107/18108 Rourkela-Jagadalpur-Rourkela Express from Rourkela on 13.08.2019 and from Jagadalpur on 14.08.2019 will remain cancelled due to heavy rain and submergence of railway track between Sambalpur and Titlagarh.
Train services in these sections, which have been temporarily suspended, will resume after the rainwater recedes from the track, the sources added.
