ECoR to run special trains during Holi, know the trains….

Bhubaneswar, March 13: Keeping in view the demands and to clear additional rush of passengers in regular trains running in important routes, ECoR has decided to run Special Trains during Holi Festival.

Passenger Profile Management Units of Indian Railways are monitoring the increased demand of passengers to make their journey hassle-free. In view of the above, Indian Railways is running many Special trains on busy routes connecting popular destinations apart from augmenting additional coaches in regular trains.

Berths Available - How to look for Special Trains: 

If, passengers are getting wait list status in regular trains during this season, they may book Train tickets in Special trains running from and through East Coast Railway jurisdiction. The Special Train Number starts with “0” (zero) or with “8” and passengers can easily find it from National Train Enquiry System (NTES) for online Ticket or may ask at the PRS inquiry Counter for Counter Tickets.

Berths are available in Special Trains. During this Puja season, ECoR has created additional berths by running of Special Trains and by augmenting additional coaches in regular trains.
