A senior railway official said that suburban local trains running towards Kalyan from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) railway station, on central line, were running late by at least half an hour after trains moving on the slow track had to be diverted onto the fast track beyond the Vikhroli suburban railway station.
