Central Railway services running down from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) faced delays on Tuesday.

Local as well as long distance train services were affected due to a unit failure at Mulund in the morning and a landslide outside the suburban section on the Kasara ghats in the evening.

CR trains from CST were running late by more than 15 minutes in the morning, after an Asangaon-bound train encountered a unit failure at 10.34am between Mulund and Thane stations where it was halted for 15 minutes. "The train was taken to Thane station where it was cancelled and taken to Kalwa car shed. Some trains were delayed by nearly 10 minutes till afternoon," said AK Singh, public relations officer, CR.

A landslide between Kasara and Igatpuri at 5.15pm affected three outstation trains to Mumbai. "A boulder came down on the tracks, but it was soon reinstated, without affecting the suburban services," said Singh.
