    With preparations on full swing, the Air conditioned Coaches for the Mumbai Trains on the Western line are being given the finishing touch at The Chennai Coach Factory.

    In all, the trains will have 12 rounds in a day from Churchgate to Borivali. There will be 8 rounds in between Churchgate to Borivali and 4 rounds in between Churchgate to Andheri.

    Hello Apurva,

    It really is great news for every Mumbaikar and the best thing is that there will be not first class or Second class type of tickets.

    I think that these AC Local Trains in Mumbai will be fully crowded not only in the summer season but also for all seasons.

    The one of its kind Mumbai Railway is well renowned for its critical but efficient transport system all over the world. The Railway officials have now started taking steps to improve their customer satisfaction which is a great thing for all the citizens of Mumbai. Now it is up to the local people to make use of it to the fullest and enjoy the transit by means of AC Local Trains.

    Have a nice day.
