With heavy snow blocking the main highway in winter, this train is extremely popular among travellers; it cuts travel time, is safer and keeps Kashmir valley connected with the world outside.
Earlier in the week, due to heavy snowfalls in the area, the 136 Km train service between Baramulla-Banihal had been suspended.
Sub-zero temperatures returned to the Kashmir Valley as the mercury plunged with Gulmarg and Pahalgam witnessing extreme cold conditions, officials said on Tuesday.
