Thanks All.

Dear Adithya - Not to think... it is... CR section of CST-Kalyan, CST-PNVL, Thane-Turbhe, Wadala-Mahim(excl) remains under DC. Time is there for it to go AC

Nice work!! seems like CR is still under DC traction, wonder when that will be converted.

Thanks Arzan.

Dear Mr. Rao - Why should it terminate the services? When Andheri went AC, CR deployed ACDC rakes for Andheri services. Now Bandra has gone AC, so CR has to deploy ACDC rakes for Bandra services too. Hence no question of terminating of CR services at Wadala.

Very nice Vijay. Please keep it up.

Does this mean that the CSTM-Andheri trains will get terminated at Wadala fro some time, until CR goes AC?

Certainly Srinivas Sir.....Pls let me know offline for any queries. Incidently, if you notice - BoriBunder Victoria Terminus (BBVT) - Now CST, was the 1st station on Indian Railways to introduce 1st ever electrification on route and 1st ever station to introduce 1500V Direct Current Traction and this same CST will be the last station on Indian Railways to get converted into 25000V AC traction.

This is a historic moment in the saga of IR in Mumbai area.

Eighty five years of DC traction has ended in BB&CI (WR). The next milestone will be to see WAM's and WAP's in BBVT (CSTM) of GIPR (CR).

Hope, this happens soon. This will be a feather in IR's cap.

Vijay - A couple of more updates will be needed from you !!
