WR asks ICF to shorten halts of Mumbai’s AC trains

The Western Railway (WR) has recently approached the Integral Coach Factory (ICF) to reduce the time taken in opening and closing automatic doors of air-conditioned (AC) local trains, so as to shorten halts.

A regular local train halts at every station for nearly 20 seconds. However, the AC local halts for close to a minute owing to their doors, delaying regular suburban trains on the same corridor. HT had reported on this issue in February this year.
