Mumbai: Train services on the Central Railway went for a toss Wednesday morning after a technical snag in a Kalyan-Dadar local train.
The problem occurred near Diva and Mumbra stations at around 7.15 am.
Officials said that it was a minor technical snag that was rectified by 8.15 am. However, during this period and soon after, train services on the slow line were running late in the morning peak hour.
The CR authorities had to operate special trains to recover the lost time.
Moreover, at around 11.20 am smoke was emitting out of the motor coach of a Siemens rake while it was standing on platform 5 of Dadar station.
