Indian Railways’ Western Railway(WR) zone will introduce the 15-car services on slow lines between Andheri and Virar from today. 25 services including 13 down and 12 up services will be converted from 12-car to 15-car services. Out of these, 18 services are slow line services, while 7 are on fast lines, according to a statement from the Western Railway.
“Augmentation of twenty-five 12-car services to 15 car services is a great boon to the passengers, as it will increase the carrying capacity of these services by 25%,” said an official of the Western Railway.
The augmentation will provide additional accommodation to the commuters for their convenience and comfort. It will be a huge relief to the commuters when the services are opened for all.
