some coaches of World Heritage DHR (Darjeeling Himalayan Railways) in the coaching yard- cum- Diesel Loco Shed. Finally we gather some momentum, cross the diamond crossing with the Narrow Gauge line heading to Darjeeling, and snake past Siliguri town heading towards Doars.
Siliguri Junction railway station:
Siliguri Junction is one of the three railway stations that serve Siliguri in Darjeeling district in the Indian state of West Bengal. The other two stations are: Siliguri Town and New Jalpaiguri.
With the railway routes badly disturbed by the partition of India in 1947, Siliguri Town railway station suddenly lost its pre-eminence, as the broad gauge link to Calcutta, running across East Pakistan, was lost. With three metre gauge lines, the new Siliguri Junction railway station became the main railway station in the area. The three metre gauge lines were linked to Kishanganj and Barsoi, Assam and Haldibari. The narrow gauge Darjeeling Himalayan Railway was there. The short reign was over in the 1960s when a new broad gauge line linked Siliguri with Calcutta, and subsequently, all railway lines in the area (excepting Darjeeling Himalayan Railway) were converted to broad gauge. The focus shifted in 1961 to a brand new broad gauge station at New Jalpaiguri.
A metre gauge diesel loco shed was established at Siliguri in 1961 and a new broad gauge diesel loco shed was established in 2007. WDP-4 and WDG-4 locos were transferred from Hubli.
