Mumbai, July 9: Due to heavy incessant rains in Mumbai, which has also gripped the adjoining Raigad, Sindhudurg and other parts of coastal Maharashtra, several parts of the city were reeling under knee-depth water. Since rainwater also accumulated on railway tracks, several long-distance express trains have been rescheduled and a few have been cancelled both at the Central and Western lines.

As per the information shared by the Central Railway officials, five long-distance trains have been cancelled, while around two other express trains have been diverted to other routes. Due to severe waterlogging reported at Nalasopara, from yesterday, the waterlogged tracks affected the services on most lines. The Western Railway, as a precautionary measure, has suspended the local train services between Bhayandar and Virar.

In addition, the AC local train services have also been suspended for the entire day. Currently, the trains are running Up and Down between Bhayander to Churchgate stations with some delay. Central Railway service is running normally but with a restricted speed limit.
