Mumbai suburban train services resume


Suburban local services, on all the four up and down lines on the Andheri-Vileparle route of the Western Railway, resumed on Wednesday bringing relief to thousands of harried commuters in Mumbai.

But, trains were still running a bit late and a caution order has been sounded for motormen, said a senior WR official.

Divisional Railway Manager of Mumbai Division of WR, Shailendra Kumar, who supervised the restoration operations, said that a break down crane from Central Railway has detached the derailed coach whose axle was broken.

Over 100 officers and 500 workers were tasked to restore the line as the earliest, he said, adding that services would run a bit delayed today as motormen would take extra caution on affected tracks since the crossovers have also got damaged.

Seven coaches of a Churchgate-bound fast local train had derailed on Western Railway line leading to a blockage of three lines between Andheri and Vile Parle bringing train services
to a grinding halt for hours.
