Said it had restored 11 out-station trains, which were either cancelled, short-terminated or short-originated, due to a farmers' agitation in Punjab.
According to Western Railway release, the four cancelled trains and seven short-terminated trains have been restored from various days starting Monday.
Train services remained suspended in Punjab since September 24 when the farmers protesting against the new farm laws converged on railway stations and tracks.
