A goods train derailment on the down line of Kasara- Igatpuri section of Central Railways Mumbai division has led to a temporary suspension of rail traffic, affecting the travel plans of thousands of passengers. The incident involved the JNPT/DLIB Container train, which derailed with seven wagons at 6:31 pm on a Sunday. No one reported injured. All diverted trains going via Diva-Vasai route will be given halt at Thane and Diva stations.

As a consequence, four trains, including the CSMT Howrah Express, CSMT-Adilabad Nandigram Express, LTT Pratapgarh Express, and CSMT Manmad Panchvati Express, found themselves stranded in the affected section. With nearly 5 thousand passengers on board these trains, authorities are facing the challenge of providing assistance and alternative arrangements.

However, there is a silver lining as local suburban train services continue to run without interruption.

Apart from that CR decided to run 11 trains on diverted routes.

Efforts are underway to make the middle line in the Kasara ghat section fit for running the detained trains. "Passengers are urged to bear with the inconvenience caused by the ongoing efforts to restore normalcy. The derailment has affected the Down section and the middle line, while the Up section from Igatpuri to Kasara remains unaffected, allowing traffic to run as usual in that direction" said an official of CR.

"To address the situation, accident relief trains have been mobilized, with assistance coming from Kalyan station and Igatpuri station. Authorities concerned are working diligently to ensure the safety of passengers and to restore normal rail operations in the affected area" said an official.
