I think IR needs to focus on branch lines also. the average speed of branch lines should be increased.

The barachak damodar route goes via inside IISCO burnpur not in railways jurisdiction, so passenger trains possibly cant use it.

Sitarampur Junction was chosen as the location by the Colonial British India Govt for constructing the alternative Grand Chord Route Tracks towards Mughalsarai as it is strategically located between Asansol on one side and other townships like Rupnarayanpur (Towards Chittranjan - Patna) and Kulti on the other side. Their survey suggested to build Grand Chord Tracks towards Kulti Direction further across River Barakar going straight to Dhanbad and then the Koderma Ghat Section :-)

Stretch from Kulti to Dhanbad meant traversing the tracks through the gradients of Thapar Nagar - Pradhakhunta Junction Stretch and designing a bridge over the Barakar River. Later, the ghat section between Parasnath and Paharpur via Nath Ganj - Gujhandi - Dilwa - Gurpa Section was a greater challenge for the work force as they had to face creatures like mosquitoes and pythons in the Dhanua - Manua Forest Belt. Further, their task was to design a huge curve track and reach Gaya Jn. Then their task was to design a huge n mammoth bridge over the River Sone. Once this bridge was designed, their last task was to join the tracks from Dehri-On-Sone to Mughalsarai Junction, where tracks from Patna Side were already in place. Many Freedom Fighters had once vandalized the construction site near Son Nagar that forced Railway workers to flee that site and quarters which delayed the...

work. After some years, by 1906 the tracks were joined with Mughalsarai and Lord Minto inaugurated this Grand Chord Route saying that if this Rail Line was introduced long time back by Mid 1850s then the 1857 Revolt (As per their Language) would have been prevented. Today, this route is undergoing #EDFC Construction Works by the Indian Railways :-)
