code PNBE (after Patna Bankipore to distinguish from Patna, which is now called Patna City), is the railway station serving the capital city of Patna in the Patna district in the Indian state of Bihar. The Patna Junction railway station is connected to most of the major cities in India by the railway network. Patna lies in between New Delhi and Kolkata (via the Main Line), which is one of the busiest rail route in India. The city is a major railway hub and has six major stations: Patna Junction, Rajendranagar Terminal, Gulzarbagh Station, Danapur Station, Patliputra Junction and Patna Sahib Station. In 2009, the construction of India's longest road-cum-rail bridge, Ganga Rail-Road Bridge, was underway on the banks on the Ganges nearby and will connect Patna to Pahleja Ghat. The bridge is expected to be completed by end of 2015. Sources say that when completed it will be 4.55 kilometres (2.83 mi) long and therefore the longest road cum rail bridge in India and one of the longest in the world. The railway line through Patna was opened in 1862. Prior to that the transport of raw materials and finished goods was done through the river transport on Ganga river. There are two branch lines, one is in the western zone that connects Patna Junction with Digha Ghat, and the other is in the eastern zone connecting the Patna City with Patna Ghat. The Danapur Division came into existence on 1 January 1925. The present Divisional Railway Managers's office building was built in 1929. In 1948 Eastern Railway (ER) started an exclusively third class express train known as 'Janta Express' on 1 October 1948 .This initially ran between Patna and Delhi and later on was extended from Delhi up to Howrah in 1949. This was the first Janta Express train in India. At the Rajendra Nagar Terminal and Patna Junction route relay interlocking (RRI) system were installed between 7 February 2012 till 12 February. ++ Here is the playlist of videos taken on- board Shalimar- Patna, and Patna- Shalimar Duronto on- board: click here
