Dense fog in parts of North India again disrupted rail services today with 14 trains being cancelled and several of them rescheduled.

"The large number of cancellations this morning was done due to the foggy weather conditions in some places in North India and the cascading effect of last Saturday's train accident near Tundla," a Northern Railway spokesperson said.

The cancelled trains include the Taj Express, the Shan-e-Punjab Express, the Kaifyat Express, the Amritsar Express and the Mahabodhi Express.

Railways have already announced cancellation of 19 other trains till January 31.

The spokesperson said five trains including the Poorva Express to Howrah, Sampark Kranti Express to Bhubaneswar and the North East Express to Guwahati have been rescheduled today.

He said 24 trains including the Rajdhanis' from Rajendra Nagar (Patna) and Bhubaneswar were reported to be running several hours behind schedule.
