The Railways are a mode of transport that are cost-effective and are an integral part of transportation when the journey consists of long-distance routes. In order to connect Mumbai with other integral towns and cities of the states, the government has been working to develop the rail service. After years of relentless efforts, soon the local train service between Mumbai-Pune and Mumbai-Nashik will soon begin.

Accordingly, a 12-coach-train will be inculcated in Central Railways after it is brought from Chennai’s Integral Coach Factory on January 10. After which, the local will be tested through trail-runs and if the trial run goes successful, the train will be introduced for the public.

The major hindrance for the rail network is the Khandala Pass and Kasara Ghats between the Mumbai-Pune and Mumbai-Nashik route. However, another problem is the engine necessary to pass the Ghats since it requires a high-power engine. Accordingly, the officials have claimed that the local trains will have the new engine with higher horsepower.

The local train will be of great benefit for the daily commuters who travel on a regular basis between Mumbai-Pune-Nashik. The local trains are expected to reduce the crowdedness from the express trains which are currently used by the passengers to travel the route.
