Central Railway (CR) saw more than 60 services being cancelled and 150 being delayed when a coach of a Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST)-bound train derailed at Kalyan’s platform no. 1 A on Monday morning. The incident took place at 9.45 am on the slow line towards CST, leaving services in complete chaos for the better part of the day. But no injuries were reported.
CR was already under fire after services were hit on Sunday as well, when a mudslide took place near Nutan Tunnel, a little after Kalwa. CR was then dealt another blow when the coach of the CST-bound train derailed on the slow line on Monday morning, leading to services being shut down till 12.20 pm.
