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).

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
