The train with 10 passengers and two goods compartments, towed by a diesel engine, left Dekargaon at 7 am and arrived in Itanagar at 12:30 pm, covering a distance of 181 kilometers.      "It is a great day for Arunachal Pradesh," CD Sharma, who had bought the first ticket for Naharlagun at Dekargaon railway station for Rs 35, said.      Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had announced introducing train service in his package for the state on January 31, 2008.      Informing about the arrival of the train, Chief Minister Nabam Tuki during an election rally in Itanagar on Sunday announced that Rajdhani and Shatabdi Express would be introduced soon to link Arunachal Pradesh to the national capital.      The ambitious 20-km...
railway line project had missed its target of December, 2011.      The engine made its maiden trial run from Harmutty to Naharlagun terminus on January 14 last while a high-level team led by Planning Commission member (North East and Power) BK Chaturvedi had inspected the Harmutty-Naharlagun on January 17 last.

Yes just saw this on Map. Itanagar and Dibrugarh are not connected. Then link trains from Rangia or new express trains from Delhi/Mumbai are only options.
