Mumbai, April 26: In an unusual incident, a local train in Mumbai rammed into an electric poll at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) railway station on Friday. According to reports, the incident took place on platform number 1 on the Harbour Line. No injuries have been reported in the incident so far. All passengers on board the local were safe. More details awaited.
Commuters travelling on the Harbour Line had to face inconvenience as services were hit following the incident. Following the incident, rail services on the Harbor Line were disrupted for some time and were later resumed.
On Wednesday, commuters on the Harbour line faced trouble during peak hours in the morning as locals were running late. The delay was caused as the overhead wire, that supplies power to the trains, snapped near Mankhurd station on Harbour Line.
In January this year, Central Railway had installed a blue indicator light at the entrance of a suburban train coach as a pilot project to warn passengers not to board trains on the verge of departing. Last year in April, Western Railway officials had begun operating all 49 scheduled services on the Harbour line that was extended till Goregaon. The extension of the route, from Andheri to Goregaon, was inaugurated by Railway and Coal Minister Piyush Goyal.
