The difficulties faced by rail passengers in the districts of Malabar will end on Sunday as most of the train services which had been cancelled owing to works will be restored.
Train services had been disrupted in the area for a few weeks due to track expansion works at Shoranur Junction railway station.
However, train services between Shoranur and Nilambur will be normalised only from October 20. Yard remodeling works at Nilambur are lagging the restoration of train services on this route.
