Mumbai trains running late as signal panel catches fire

Late last night, the signal panel between Kurla and Vidyavihar caught fire. The fire was brought in control within 30 minutes, but has affected train services badly. Earlier, trains were running over an hour late. Train services were cancelled up to 3.30 am.

10.00 am update: Some of our friends have informed that since many train commuters are travelling by roads, some of the roads and highways are jam-packed. We would suggest that if some people can leave a bit late from home, say after 11.30 am, the congestion could be sorted.

8.40 am update: Central and Harbour line trains running around 35 - 50 minutes late.
Central line commuters are permitted to travel via Mahim-Churchgate route to reach their destination.

Services might be affected for a maximum of three days, as reported by railway authorities.

Mumbai-Pune Pragati Express cancelled.
Mumbai-Pune Singhgad Express cancelled.
Kurla-Manmad Godavari Express cancelled.
Manmad-Kurla Godavari Express cancelled.

@Anonymous - Trains are still running late... actually the indicators aren't working, but the frequency is very low.
