 Accordingly, the 06335 Guwahati-Kochuveli weekly special train will continue to leave Guwahati every Wednesday till January 27, 2016.

During the return journey, the 06336 Kochuveli-Guwahati weekly special train will leave Kochuveli every Sunday till January 24, 2016.

The special train will, however, not touch Chennai during its journey, NFR Chief PRO PJ Sharma said.
