It was a normal monday! I had been home for a while and went off to see my friend and Ex-IRI 'Hotshot' Suriender Singh...
Suriender had encountered a challan for rash-driving and had to surrender his 'Driving license' to ASDP Police...and had to pay off his fines to clear his name
and ID :P
And being his 'jigra Bangali dost', he almost compelled me to accompany him to Asansol! So we set up for a chain journey to Asansol by catching up the MURI-DHN passenger up to DHN and then subsequent journey upto ASN would been be covered up by the RNC-HWH intercity...
So we bought an express ticket from SJA-ASN, how we made this journey is a tale for some other day,and I am attaching the same as a fond memory, as from tomorrow onwards such tickets won't be available in any of the plethora of stations lying on the DHN-CRP railway line stretch....
It is my deep regret that inspite of covering many journeys on this track section countless time, I never considered saving a ticket as a souveneir....
This line along with the DHN-JRI-PTD lines have given me some of my fondest childhood memories and at this juncture, when this line is said to become inoperational from tomorrow, and while I lie musing about it in Hyderabad, I confess that I have been overcome with moments of poigant sorrow and fond remnisciences....
Yes the line had to be closed, yes it's mere operational existence was akin to gambling with people's lives......but still deep down somewhere in my heart, there is a small child crying out, lamenting that a railway line that provided him with some of his most cherished memories....a railway line where he saw the last surviving legacy of the 'Steam Engines'......a railway line where he saw his favourite ALCOs being towed to trains like 'Shaktipunj' and 'Maurya'.....a railway line that made him a ferroequinologist in the first place......and most importantly a rail-line where his 'Late grandfather' would often spend puttering around as a guard of the great 'Eastern Railways'!!!
Alas, all good things must come to an end. At the stroke of midnight tonight a chapter, a legacy, a 130 year endeavour that started during the days of slavery in the 1880s under the reigns of 'Eastern Indian Railways' would fade into the pages of history..........
Farewell 'DHN-CRP' line, thee served well!!!
In forever fond remembrance

Sir the line will be diverted or restored. So sir pl do not worry. The line will likely come back but might take 1-a few years.

The line may or may not be back...
Cause it is ECR & DHN, two mutually opposing entities!

Protest against closure of DHN -CRP section continues at full fledge inspite of risk. DHN DRM said that there are many small and medium stations in the section where people are totally dependent on the few pairs of Passenger trains that pass through. Dhanbad-Jhargram Passenger is the lifeline of the people. People transport illegal mined coals, iron equipments and foodies from the area. Phultanwar, Katrasgarh are amongst the major tailors of it. People here are very very backward at no employment level.
Solving to the quora, Adra DRM Sri S.K Srivastava said, it's the matter of BCCL and coal officials to look into people's matter. Population needs a strong shift from the fire effected area giving them a chance of starting thier
lives in a new way. Hope they complete the task ASAP!

There is a need of temporary solution as of now and at the same time maintain a train's intermediate stations. After, a permanent solution is available, everything will be restored back to normal. The bypass has to be constructed to avoid GMO LR.
But, I do not see returning of trains on ADRA-GMO section because there is no solution proposed and all trains will be diverted via BKSC or ASN which will be better.
