Coimbatore: Passenger train services between Mettupalayam and Coonoor in the Nilgiris Mountain Rail sector have been cancelled for seven more days upto December 4 due to continued heavy rain and landslips.

Operations to restore the track are continuing, sources said.

The services will be resumed subject to improvement of weather conditions, a southern railway spokesperson from Salem Division said.
