Mumbai, August 7: Local train services on Mumbai's Western Line were disrupted after a cable fell on Over Head Equipment (OHE) between Mahalaxmi and Mumbai Central railway stations. Local trains were not running between Dadar and Churchgate for a brief period on Wednesday evening.

"External Cable fell on OHE between Mahalaxmi - Mumbai Central at about 18.35 hrs, causing tripping of OHE. Traffic stopped on all 4 lines. Restoration being done on war footing," the Western Railway said in a tweet.

Last week, local train services on the central line and harbour line between the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSTM) and Karjat, Kasaraand Khopoli were suspended due to the accumulation of water on tracks following heavy and continuous rains. In Palghar, heavy rains led to water levels rising over tracks in some sections, leading to suspension of train services between Vasai and Virar towns.
