If my train is late by more than 5 hours?
If your train is late by more than 5 hours then if you could go for another train which is late by less than 5 hours. If there is no option the real problem begins.
I don’t have option what to do now?
First of all don’t panic and cancel your plans. You should keep an eye on the running status of the train on the jouney date and leave for the station only if the time you need to arrive the station is equal to the time required for the train to arrive the station plus 30 more minutes. If you arrived the station and the train is getting more and more late you should probably wait in the Waiting Room(if your train is not announced for arrival) as your train is not going to come only if you are on the platform. Waiting room has all the facilities of announcement and displays that shows your trains status when it is announced that your train is about to arrive, you could leave for the platform then.
This blog just suggests you a way but to choose it is all your wish.
