MUMBAI: A section of commuters travelling in the Churchgate-bound AC suburban train pulled the chain and brought the local to a halt at Andheri station this morning after finding that the air-conditioning was "not functioning".
The passengers of some coaches of the Virar-Churchgate local train said they experienced suffocation and sweating due to the non-functioning AC.
"Ever since the local train left Borivali station, we found that the coach was not cooling. Initially we thought that the AC would start soon. But despite crossing few stations on the way, there was no sign

of it," a passenger said.
"Since the doors of the coaches of this particular local have to be kept shut for air-conditioning, there was no ventilation, which led to suffocation and sweating. When it became unbearable, we pulled the chain and made the local stop," he added.
The Western Railway, which operates this AC local, later tweeted that due to the technical glitches in some of the coaches, the train will not operate till the restoration work gets over."
Due to the technical problem in working of AC in 3 coaches of AC local, the services of AC local has been cancelled today till further repairs. Inconvenience to commuters is highly regretted please (sic)," the WR said in its tweet.
Chief spokesperson of WR, Ravinder Bhakar, said the train operations will start as soon as the technical problems in the three coaches are fixed. "Otherwise, it will remain off for the entire day today," he said. Even last Friday, the WR had cancelled the AC train service for maintenance work.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
