A branch line goes beyond the border in Nepal from this station. Does any one have idea where the line exactly goes inside Nepal?

This is a disused NG line. This was earlier the Forbesganj-Biratnagar line, that connected to the Kosi Barrage railway.

The NG route fell into disuse a long time ago, along with several short NG spurs from Bihar to Nepal ( sometime in the 60's or 70's). There have been several plans to revive these old routes to facilitate freight movement between both the countries. So, it is possible that they are reviving this old route again in a BG avatar. The old NG alignment is mentioned in this IRFCA page about connectivity from India to Nepal. ( Just checked in Google Earth, this is just an alignment, and only earthwork is visible in most places, and the connection to Bathnaha is not seen in Google Earth).

    Often we have some TL Entries seemingly in WaitList forever. Usually, the reason for this is that TLMs have already looked at the TL Entry but are not confident enough to Confirm it or are looking for more inputs from the Member regarding the source, etc. And this delay eventually causes...

    This is to address persistent and lingering questions about FM Appointments: . 1. Being an FM is a service. It is NOT supposed to be some kind of "reward" or "medal" to "deserving" members. The ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE of the process is to promptly handle/look into Reports filed by members, which is expected to...
