Mumbai, February 3, 2015

The Central Railway today completed 90 years of suburban services in Mumbai.
It was on this day in 1925 that Sir Leslie Wilson, the  then Governor of Bombay, flagged off the first EMU service with four cars from the then Bombay Victoria Terminus to Kurla on the harbour line.
Much has changed since then. Today, for instance, the Central Railway runs 15-car trains on the Main line.
In 1925, the Central Railway ran 150 services and carried 2.2 lakh passengers every day. Today, it runs 1618 services and carries 41 lakh passengers daily, a press release from Central Railway added.
