A Belapur-bound local train from CSMT went on the harbour line of Western Railway on Monday night. The incident occurred after the train received a wrong signal at Wadala station. It was the motorman who realised the error after four coaches of the train left the platform.

The train was then taken to King’s Circle station, where the service was terminated. The train was taken to Bandra before being shifted to the yard. An enquiry has been ordered by the Central Railway (CR) administration.

“A few coaches on the train had moved ahead in the wrong direction, which is why the motorman had to take the train to King’s Circle station,” said a senior CR official.

Vilas C, a Navi Mumbai resident, said he had the train from CSMT at 9.38pm. “After leaving Wadala station, the train was halted for 20 minutes. When it reached King’s Circle, announcement was made about its termination,” he said
