The suburban train services of the Central Railway were being operated only up to Titwala and Ambernath stations
Heavy overnight rains in Mumbai and neighbouring areas led to flooding and washing out of some rail tracks in the Kasara Ghat near here and other areas and also caused mudslides and boulder crashes, severely affecting long-distance and local train services, officials said on Thursday.
According to railway officials, some long-distance trains were held up at various locations and special buses were being arranged for the stranded train passengers.

suburban train services of the Central Railway were being operated only up to Titwala and Ambernath stations in neighbouring Thane district from the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) in south Mumbai since Wednesday night, CR's chief spokesperson Shivaji Sutar said.
Train operations from Titwala to Igatpuri (in Nashik district adjoining Thane) and from Ambernath to Lonavala in neighbouring Pune district were suspended after tracks were washed out, boulders crashed, and inundation and mudslides occurred at multiple locations in the section due to the heavy overnight downpour, he said.

Because of the problems in tracks, upcountry train movement between Mumbai-Pune and Mumbai-Nashik was affected. Mumbai and adjoining districts of Thane, Palghar and Raigad are experiencing heavy rainfall.
Around 10.15 pm on Wednesday, the Central Railway suspended the traffic between Titwala and Igatpuri rail section following heavy water-logging on tracks near Umbermali station close to Kasara, located about 120 km from here, and due to incidents of boulder crash at the Kasara Ghat, according to rail officials.
Later, at 12.20 am, the CR suspended traffic between Ambernath and Lonavala section as flooding took place near Vangani station, located about 90 km from Mumbai, and some boulders fall in the Khandala Ghat section, they said.
The CR said heavy downpour for a few hours caused damage to railway tracks and other equipment. It said Kasara recorded around 138 mm rainfall in four hours from 9 pm on Wednesday, while Lonavala and Karjat recorded 142 mm and 129.1 mm rainfall, respectively, from midnight till 7 am on Thursday. Sutar said efforts were on to restore train movement in both sections.
"Special boulder trains, various machines, and labourers are working at the damaged spots," Sutar said, adding that the Central Railway's general manager was continuously monitoring and guiding officers and staff for quick restoration from his camp office.
The Central Railway has set up help desks at Kalyan, Kasara, and Igatpuri stations for passengers, he said. The CR's suburban services on the Harbour line, Trans-Harbour line and Belapur-Kharkopar line were running as per schedule, officials added.
Local train services on the Western Railway route were also affected due to track changing point failure at Churchgate in south Mumbai early Thursday morning, a spokesperson said. The problem was rectified around 7.30 am and since then the services were running normal, he said.
Meanwhile, the Tansa and Modak Sagar dams, the two huge water reservoirs, that supply drinking water to Mumbai are close to the overflow mark. KS Hosalikar, Head SID, Climate & Research Services, Pune, has asked citizens to be on alert.

Central Railway services were affected in two separate incidents on Friday, inconveniencing commuters. In the morning, thousands of local users had to walk on the tracks after a crack was reported on a steel rail, leading to service disruption.
“A weld fracture was reported on the CSMT-bound slow line between Thane-Mulund at 9.25 am. It was attended by the staff and put right at 9.50 am,” Central Railway chief public relations officer Shivaji Sutar said.
A number of services were delayed and a few stalled and diverted due to the problem. Commuters took

to tracks to change over from slow to fast line to reach their destinations.
In the late afternoon, suburban services on the Vasind-Khadavli section were hit after two pantographs of a local train got entangled with overhead wires.
Sutar said that the local train was going from Kasara to CSMT when the incident occurred. “Tower wagons have been moved for restoration of the train. Two express trains and one local train have been held due to the snag,” he added. Traffic on this stretch was restored at 7.18 pm, he said.
Officials said they were trying to solve the problem before the evening peak hour to avoid large-scale detention or cancellation of services. The reason for the incident will be investigated, they said.

वयाची ४५ वर्षे आणि लसीकरण पूर्ण झालेल्या कर्मचाऱ्यांना मुंबई लोकलमधून प्रवासाची परवानगी द्यावी, प्रवास अडचणीतून किमान या वर्गाची तरी सुटका होईल, अशी मागणी रेल्वे प्रवासी संघटनेने केली आहे. (Mumbai Local Train Travelling)
लॉकडाऊनमधील निर्बंधांमुळे नोकरदार वर्ग आर्थिकदृष्ट्या पूर्णपणे कोलमडला आहे. मुंबई, ठाणे, कल्याण, नवी मुंबई सर्वच भागात करोना बाधितांच्या संख्येत मोठी घट झाली आहे. मुंबईतील करोना दुपटीचा कालावधी ११ महिन्यांपर्यंत पोहोचला आहे. लॉकडाउनच्या नावाखाली कमावत्या माणसांना आता अधिक काळ घरात डांबून ठेवणे योग्य नाही, असे आमचे मत आहे. लाखो कुटुंबांच्या आर्थिक स्थैर्याचा शासनाने गंभीरपणे विचार करायला हवा. मुख्यमंत्र्यानी आवाहन करूनही अपवाद वगळता बहुसंख्य खासगी आस्थापना आपल्या कर्मचाऱ्यांना या काळात पगार देत नाहीत. ही स्थिती लक्षात घेता १ जूनपासून दोन्ही डोस घेतलेल्या सर्वसामान्यांसाठी लोकल सुरू करणे योग्य ठरेल. यामुळे सर्वसामान्यांचे प्रवास यातनेतून सुटका

होईल.
'राज्याचे अर्थचक्र सुरळीत ठेवण्यासाठी कारखाने सुरू आहेत; मात्र कामावर जाण्यासाठी लोकल प्रवासाला परवानगी नाही, हा मोठाच विरोधाभास आहे. यामुळे अशा प्रवाशांना लोकल मुभा द्यावी, अशी मागणी मुख्यमंत्री उद्धव ठाकरे यांच्याकडे केली आहे', असे रेल्वे सल्लागार समितीचे माजी सदस्य मनोहर शेलार, रेल्वे प्रवासी संघाचे अध्यक्ष नंदकुमार देशमुख आणि सर्वच रेल्वे प्रवासी संघटनांनी केली आहे.
