Bhor Ghats which are known as Bhore Ghauts is the mountain passage between Palasdhari to Khandala in case of railways and Khopoli to Khandala in case of Roads . This Ghat cover a Distance about 21 Kms from Palasdhari to Khandala in case of Railways as well as 18 Kms in case of Roads (covered by Mumbai - Pune Expressway) from Khopoli to Khandala. In case of Railways it comes under the proposed project of Golden Quadrilateral Freight Corridors. In case of Railways this Ghat section has 26 tunnels here through the entire ghat section. During the construction of this Ghat section about 25000 workers died due to the steepness of this Ghat section. This Ghat section consisted Some Masonry arch bridges , Reversing Stations etc. Initially steam traction was used to haul trains across this ghat. In 1929-30 the Great Indian Peninsula Railway electrified Bombay (Mumbai) - Poona (Pune) section with a 1.5 kV DC system. This led to end of steam era on this ghat. The electrification system of the Mumbai - Pune section completed its conversion to a 25 kV 50 Hz AC system in June 2015. The first DC locomotives were EF/1 class locomotives (later classified as WCG1) for freight trains. Later Express trains were hauled by EA/1 class locomotives (later classified as WCP1).
