The Northern Division of Indian Railways has recently introduced six summer special train services to Jammu Tawi. These trains have been introduced to beat the heavy rush in Jammu-bound trains. As per the news reports, these trains will start operating soon.

All the trains will run throughout the days on different days, and will pass through the city’s railway station. With the start of these new summer trains, it is expected that travellers will likely visit Jammu to travel to Kashmir to spend the summer season.

As per an official, the new summer special trains have been introduced keeping in mind the upcoming summer vacations. He also said that some trains have been specially introduced for travellers who would want to travel to Jammu for pilgrimage. Also, one of the reasons for introducing these special trains toward Jammu is that many travellers across Mumbai, Delhi, Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh want to travel to Jammu and Kashmir for summer vacations. The official also informed that these special trains will remain available till the end of summer season.
