The maximum effect of cold and fog is being seen on rail traffic in North India. The fog has also put brakes on the speed of superfast trains. Many long distance trains are running late by five to six hours from the scheduled time. The movement of about 335 trains has been affected due to the fog. 88 trains have been cancelled. 31 trains have been diverted and 33 trains have been short terminated.

Dense fog along with chill of cold has increased the problems of railway passengers. For the last 15 days, the time table of the railway has deteriorated. These days the speed of trains remains like a bullock cart. Due to their continuous running late, the trouble of the passengers has increased. Not only during the journey but also on the platform while waiting for their train, they have to worry. In front of the fog, all kinds of preparations of the railway are also proving to be dwarf.

Indian Railways took several steps to deal with the problem of train delays due to fog during winter season, which proved to be unsuccessful. It was decided to increase the maximum permissible speed from 60 kmph to 75 kmph during fog and inclement weather conditions by using fog avoidance devices in locomotives.

Loco pilot should follow all precautions in foggy weather. The operation of trains during fog was left to the discretion of the loco pilot. For example, if he feels less visibility due to fog, he can run the train at a lower or higher speed than the prescribed speed. Along with this, it was also instructed that this speed should not exceed 75 kilometers per hour under any circumstances.
