The remains of the legendary Dhanbad - Jharia - Patherdih railway line in Dhanbad . . .
Really sad to see a tragic end of once a lifeline connectivity between Dhanbad & Jharia which was closed around 11 yrs ago .
13301/02 Swarna Rekha Exp once used to run via this route
Pic is taken between Dhanbad & abandoned Dhansar station
near Bank More area

The fire is a great mystery, greatest minds have not been able to figure out a way to stop it. The fire was first spotted in 1916 and it is continuously burning till date.

The fire brewed up as a result of decades of negligence!
The Swarna Rekha was introduced in 2002 and I was on board the first run.
Unlike the Swarna Rekha of today which is a pale shadow of itself, The Swarna Rekha was a speedster when it were introduced.
It used to get a diesel alco (KHIT KHIT Engine) from DHN to ADRA and
then it used to be be hauled by a E-loco from Adra to TATA.
It used to run swiftly departing from DHN skips Dhansar and halt at Jharia then Pathardih, Bhojudih etc would follow!
I remember that journey very clearly even though it was 14 years ago when I was a chirpy ten year old kid!
I would write a trip report on that soon!
