The 98-odd trains are called ‘Platform Return’ where it terminates in Mumbai and within one to two hours, it again departs for its next destination, sources said, adding, “Usually, it takes 45 to 60 minutes to clean a long-distance train”
Central Railway will enforce a 38-hour mega block on the Kharghar-Panvel route starting 11pm on Saturday, resulting in 170 cancelled services and 700 trains being short terminated at Belapur. The block is necessary for the construction of two new lines for a western dedicated freight corridor.
The CR officials said they need to rethink the menu now which will avoid cooking food on the platforms. The food stalls at railway stations ensure that passengers commuting on the local trains get decent food at a reasonable rate
