Smog disrupts Central Railway services; CR to change morning time-table

Central Railway officials have decided to run CSTM-bound trains 10-15 minutes early that leave from Karjat, Khopoli station


Winters have set in Mumbai and Mumbaikars have started witnessing foggy (rather smoggy) mornings. Where Mumbaikars are enjoying winters, foggy mornings have started affecting the Central Railway line. 

Considering fog, motormen have been running local trains at the lowest speed in order to avert untoward incidents. This has resulted in delayed trains and frustrated commuters. Hence, CR has decided to change the morning timetable of local trains.
