The postponement comes in the wake of continued delayed arrival of train no. 12628, New Delhi-KSR Bengaluru City Karnataka Express since about a month due to thick fog in North India. Karnataka Express’ rake is being used to operate Chennai Mail and hence the postponement.

Additional coaches :  Western Railway will add one additional AC three-tier coach to train no 19260 Bhavnagar-Kochuveli-Express on January 15, January 22 and on January 29.  The coach will be added to train no 19259 Kochuveli-Bhavnagar on January 19, January 26 and on February 2.

Ticket reservation
:  The computerised passenger reservation centres of Southern Railway will remain closed in second shift from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday on account of Pongal festival, a release said.
