The Central Railway said that special suburban trains and stations are regularly sanitized and cleaned to upkeep proper hygiene.
The local trains were suspended for the general public since the lockdown began on March 22. The Western Railway and Central Railway resumed their Mumbai suburban services over the mainline and Harbour line on June 15. These special suburban services were only for general passengers/public and were strictly meant for ‘essential staff’ as identified by the state government. Those working in the private sector cannot use them, due to which most of them are struggling to reach their workplaces.
The Central Railway has appealed to people not to believe any rumours and rush to the stations as the trains are only for essential workers. "Others are requested not to rush to the stations. The public is requested not to believe any rumours. All commuters as permitted by Government of Maharashtra to adhere social distancing norms and wear mask, while boarding, alighting at railway stations and travelling in special suburban trains," Central Railway said in a statement.
Check out the full list of trains below:
Special local departure Pune 08.05 hrs arrival Lonavala 09.30 hrs (stoppage, timings same as 99810 local service)

लॉकडाऊनमधला निम्मा पगार पेट्रोलवर खर्च 
पुणे – पुणे, पिंपरी चिंचवडसह लोणावळ्यापर्यंत आणि मुंबईत नोकरीसाठी दररोज अप-डाऊन करणारे हजारो नोकदार सध्या, रेल्वे बंद असताना करोनाच्या स्थितीतही नोकरी टिकविण्यासाठी दुचाकीवरून प्रवास करीत आहेत. लॉकडाऊनमुळे निम्मा अर्धा मिळणारा पगारही पेट्रोलवर खर्च होत असल्याने पोराबाळांसह उपाशी राहण्याची वेळ चाकरमान्यांवर आली आहे, अशी स्थिती असतानाही दौंड-पुणे आणि लोणावळा-पुणे रेल्वेसह मुंबईकडे जाणाऱ्या लोकल पॅसेंजर बंद आहेत. ही सेवा कधी सुरू होते, याकडे चाकरमान्यांचे डोळे लागले आहेत. 
राज्यात एसटी सेवा आणि शहरात पीएमपी सुरू झाल्यानंतर रेल्वे सेवाही सुरू होईल, अशी आशा नोकदारांना होती. शिवाय, अनलॉक 2 आणि 3 मध्ये शासकीय

तसेच खासगी कार्यालये सुरू झाल्यानंतरही रेल्वे सुरू झाली नाही. यामुळे गेल्या चार महिन्यांपासून नोकदारांना दुचाकीसह खासगी वाहनांचा वापर करावा लागत आहे. पगार 15 हजार आणि पेट्रोलवर 10 ते 12 हजार खर्च होत असल्याने चाकरमान्यांचे आर्थिक गणित कोलमडले आहे.
करोनाच्या काळात दुसरी नोकरी मिळणे अवघड होईल. आज ना उद्या परिस्थिती सुधारेल या आशेने चाकरमाने दुचाकीसह खासगी वाहनांनी नोकरीसाठी अगदी लोणावळ्यापर्यंत धावपळ करीत आहेत. दौंड-पुणे, लोणावळा-पुणे, पुणे-मुंबई या मार्गावरील रेल्वे सेवा अद्यापही बंद आहे. 
पुण्यातून उत्तर भारतात जाणाऱ्या काही रेल्वे गाड्या सुरू झाल्या असल्या तरी आजही चाकरमान्यांसाठी गरजेच्या असलेल्या रेल्वे गाड्या सुरू झालेल्या नाहीत. यामुळे बाहेरील शहरांतून पुण्यात येणाऱ्या तसेच पुण्यातून बाहेर जाणाऱ्या चाकरमान्यांचे हाल होत आहेत. रेल्वे बंद असल्याने खासगी वाहनाने नोकरीचे ठिकाण गाठावे लागत आहे.
बारामती-दौंड-पुणेदरम्यान दररोज सुमारे 10 ते 15 हजार प्रवासी, तर पुणे-लोणावळा दरम्यान दररोज दीड लाख प्रवासी रेल्वेने प्रवास करायचे. यातील निम्म्याहून अधिक दररोजचे अप-डाऊन करणारे होते. आजघडीला पुणे शहरात दौंड, लोणावळा, यवत, केडगाव आदी ठिकाणांहून स्वतःच्या दुचाकी किंवा अन्य खासगी वाहनाने येणाऱ्यांची संख्या सुमारे पन्नास हजारांपेक्षा अधिक असल्याचा अंदाज आहे.
पुण्यातील एका बॅंकेत देखभाल-दुरुस्ती विभागात कामाला असून केडगाव-स्वारगेट-केडगाव असे दोन्ही वेळचे मिळून 130 किलोमीटरचे अंतर दुचाकीवर पार करतो. दररोज, 300 रुपयांचे पेट्रोल लागत असून महिन्याकाठी 9 हजार रुपये खर्च होतात. मला, 15 हजार पगार असून केवळ नोकरी टिकवण्यासाठी सोलापूर महामार्गाने धोकादायक प्रवास करावा लागत आहे.– बबन ठेबरे, नोकरदार
दौंड-पुणे रेल्वे प्रवासाकरिता 270 रुपयांचा मासिक पास लागायचा. आता, याच प्रवासाकरिता मला दुचाकीवरून पेट्रोलसाठी पाच ते सहा हजार रुपये खर्च येतो. पुण्यातील कॅम्प भागातील एका राष्ट्रीयकृत बॅंकेत सुरक्षारक्षक म्हणून काम करतो. सध्या, पावसाळ्याचे दिवस असले तरी सोलापूर महामार्गावरून जीव धोक्‍यात घालून प्रवास करावा लागत आहे. प्रवासी संघटनांनी दौंड-पुणे रेल्वे सुरू करण्याबाबत मागणी केली असून ती मान्य झाली नाही.– दिलीप होळकर, नोकरदार

Central Railway’s Hill Gangs of the Bhor Ghat (between Karjat and Khandala) and Thul Ghat (between Kasara and Igatpuri) climb the high and steep mountains along the tracks and through rappelling identify the loose and vulnerable boulders and mark it with red paint throughout the month of January to March every year. Then, in the month of April and May they drop the loose and vulnerable boulders marked by taking a block of 4 to 5 hours each day. These boulders are then cleared through a boulder special run especially for this purpose. This year alone more than 650 loose boulders were identified and dropped both in Bhor ghat and Thul ghat and the same were cleared by a 3-wagon boulder special train by taking a block for 4-5 hours for 60 days, informed said Shivaji Sutar, chief public relations officer of the CR.These safety soldiers work throughout the year in...

ensuring a smooth and safe passage to the trains towards Pune and southern parts of India and towards Nashik and northern parts of India. These hill gang members through their expertise in mountain rappelling, remove loose and dangerous boulders likely to fall on tracks, clear the mud likely to cause landslides, clear the chock up of catch water draining etc. to avert any unusual likely to be caused especially during monsoon. "This ambitious and awe-inspiring task has been fulfilled by 10 hill gang members each in Bhor ghat and in Thul ghat. To fulfill this task the safety gears and instruments provided were safety helmet, safety shoes, safety belt (harness), binocular, 100 metre rope, hand gloves, safety jacket, katavni, pahar, fonk, red paint, brush, first aid box, ghan 5 kg, hammer different sizes, crow bar, whistle thunderer, chisel, axe in different sizes, wire claw, hand signal flag Red/Green, shovel, jam bavata and ghamela. During the monsoon and thereafter the hill gang members do the work of scanning for scattered loose boulders and dropping as per requirement, clean the chock-up catch water drain and culverts, lean tree cutting and bridge cleaning," Sutar said. Untitled Carousel Central Railway to take strict action against those violating social distancing normsThe Central Railways has decided to take strict action against those who violate social distancing norms at platforms and while boarding and getting off trains.The principal hill range of the Western Ghats of Maharashtra is the Sahyadri range, there are a number of passes or ‘Ghats’ in this range, notable among them being the Bhor Ghat and the Thul ghat. It was through these ghats that the rail line from Mumbai cut through the range and reached Pune and Nashik respectively."Traversing through these Ghats poses a great challenge to both Roadways and Railways. The steep gradient rail line through these Ghats pose a unique challenge to Central Railway, Moreover, during heavy rains erosions of steep slopes takes place which gives way to heavy boulders to roll down and small boulders loosen up. The big Boulders are cut into pieces by the hill gangs with the help of chisels and hammers and cleared, while small boulders are dropped to ensure the safe running of trains," Sutar said.For many rock climbers, mountain rappelling is an adventure, but for these hill gangs of the Central Railway this is a mission performed to ensure the safety of railways. These all-weather railwaymen toil, sweat in a very difficult terrain so that the trains pass through these Ghats are protected from any unusual. The challenge is on every year after year for the hill gang of Central Railway.
