Mangaluru: Southern Railway resumed passenger train services on the Mangaluru-Mumbai line Sunday morning, after restoring the Kulshekar-Padil section of the track which was blocked after a massive landslip on Friday.

Southern Railway Palakkad division officials said the track was certified fit for operation in the morning. The first train to pass the section was the Ajmer- Ernakulam Maru Sagar Express special at 8.55 AM

The running track, including the overhead equipment of railway electrification was made fit for operation by Saturday evening itself, a release said. More than 75 workers from the division worked round the clock for 45 hours to clear the debris that had fallen on the tracks, officials said.

Many trains on the route were diverted, rescheduled or cancelled after the landslip near Kulshekar tunnel at 10.40 am on Friday due to heavy rains in the previous days.
