Patna, Sep 25 (UNI) East Central Railway(ECR) today cancelled two Howrah-bound Express trains from Bihar following torrential rains here and in Kolkata.

ECR sources said today's 2352 Dn Danapur-Howrah Express and 3024 Dn Gaya-Howrah Express had been cancelled because of the non-arrival of the corresponding Up trains from Howrah following two days of heavy downpour in Kolkata since yesterday.

Moreover, the sources said because of a similar inclement weather prevailing in South Bihar, including in Patna and its neighbouring districts since yesterday, a number of other long distance and passengers trains had either been diverted to new routes or had been running several hours behind schedule.

Among the important long distance trains, running considerably late, were 3007 Toofan Express, 3049 Howrah-Amritsar Express and 3039 Howrah-New Delhi Janata Express, the sources added.
