MUMBAI: The CR cancelled 33 services during peak hours on Saturday after all the four pantographs of an EMU got entangled in the Overhead Equipment (OHE) between Titwala and Ambivali on the CST-bound line at 5am in Ambivali.
Six mail and express trains too were held up. While two trains were brought to Kalyan by diesel locomotives, three others were rescheduled. CR divisional railway manager Ravinder Goyal said, "The material that holds the catenary wire broke, leading to the OHE getting entangled. The material will be sent to laboratory for testing."
source said that poor maintenance may have caused the incident as work was undertaken on the stretch hours before the incident." But Goyal clarified that maintenance had been carried out on another section.
A CR official said, "We had to replace 170m of wire." Traffic was restored at 10.55am and Gorakhpur-LTT Express crossed the section at 11.08am, a spokeperson said.
