Some of the snaps clicked by me on during travel from MLN to BIC in Vistadome coaches. This section comes under North Eastern railway, Lucknow division and It is MG and will never be converted to BG. This section covers the dense forest of Dudhwa and Katarnia Ghat. One can witness many wild animals such as Beer, Deer, Raindeer, Panther,Leopard and many different species of birds. This section reminds the old railway system where loco pilot exchange tokens at every station, Manual crossing gate and every station is surrounded of dense forest. Ghaghra river and Sharda river makes this section even more beautiful. The trains speed in forest is reduced to 30 40kmph so it takes more than 4 hour to cover 107KM.One should must travel on this section as we don't know when Govt can take decision for its GC. In these you can witness the best moments.
It was proposed but as of now last month GM NER(Current RB CEO) has said that it will not be converted to BG
Between MLN BIK it touches 45kmph.. Going ahead it hardly touches 40kmph
VSW-TAV will stay MG for Gir Safari Railway
PLK to MJPB existing MG line via DDW-TQN will b made Heritage & will not b made BG. But MLN-MJPB via BIK-PLK-Majhgain-Nighasan-Bathuwa new BG line will be made. PLK will have Break of Gauge system.
