Marine Lines

Marine Lines is the name of an area in South Mumbai. It is also the name of a railway station on the Mumbai suburban railway.

Marine Lines (station)

The name is so due to its proximity to the Arabian Sea. Marine Drive is the famous promenade near the station. It is just 300m from the sea shore on its western flank.

Almost all the northern bound fast trains halt at Marine Lines. Churchgate bound fast locals do stop at Marine Lines, but skip the station during the evening peak hours.

The stairs of north end of the station pass by a cemetery. The commuters use the cemetery path as pass through to reach the station quickly, even though it is trespassing.

The south end exit climbs up to Princess Street. Which leads to Kalbadevi Road.

Marine Lines does not have a large residential population but has an enormous floating population consisting of office-goers, traders and shopkeepers.
