Last Silchar-Lumding MG journey today
People of Barak Valley in Assam will undertake their last railway journey on the metre gauge track of the historic Silchar-Lumding route tomorrow, with the Northeast Frontier Railway closing it for infrastructure and technical build-up for a broad gauge track conversion from October 1 next, reports PTI.
The 15692 Down Cachar Express will have its last journey
on the metre gauge track at 7:15 pm tomorrow and 15694 Down Barak Valley Express will wind up its journey at 9:25 am of September 29, an official of the NF Railway said.
The journey through the engineering feat of the British and a picturesque scenic metre gauge rail route from Silchar to Lumding will then become part of history, the official said.
The metre gauge route covered a serpentine hills section going through green forests, rivulets and streams and mounting the highest ridge of Jatinga station known for oranges and migratory birds, he said.
For reaching Jatinga, one had to cross 37 tunnels. After conversion to broad gauge it will have 20 channels, he said.
Jatinga on the railway map will have a new name, Jatinga Lampur and Lower Haflong will become New Haflong, he said.
Agonising moments were those when passengers were detained in the hills for days, particularly during the monsoons and blockade of the track due to landslips, he said.
With the mega–block coming into effect from October 1 next for enabling the NF Railway to go for necessary infrastructure and completion of the BG track, the MG railway line will sink into oblivion, he said.
Built in the 19th century, the Silchar-Lumding metre gauge line has 37 tunnels, 586 bridges and 24 stations on the way through the difficult hilly terrain of North Cachar Hills with the steepest gradient in the Harangajao-Jatinga section.

I have tagged in Rail Joke.
This is called Dream BG Run by a Local daily....
I dnt know how thay can make such anews item...
just making people fool and playing with emotions...
people of this region [Barak Valley]suffers very bad communication system with rest of the country.
BG conversion is a social and political issue here.
everybody now a days talking about BG
every day newspaper publishing photos of GC work...
regarding RAJ, people are saying that Manipur/Mizoram Rajdhani will run from SCL

Yes, this and some more has come in a Silchar newspaper, Jugasankha.
But I don't consider this to be a joke unless somebody feels NE shouldn't get its due.
Here are the facts:
1. Silchar is the second largest city of Assam
Silchar is the centre for a large area of Mizoram and Manipur
3. there are several daily flights between Silchar and Guwahati and Silchar and Kolkata
Now there were 2 daily trains from Silchar to Guwahati in the 1980s when MG services to Ghy stopped. With rise in population and more movement of people for education and business 4 daily trains could be appropriate. Some may be Inter City, some Jananshatabdi and the like.
2 trains to Kolkata is not inappropriate either given the daily flights. On ecould be Super fast and another an Express train. That's what the report says.
Now Rajdhani express is a political decision. But Weekly Ac Express to NDLS is certainly appropriate.
There is already talk about direct flights to Delhi for quite some time.
Silchar's comparable city in Bangladesh that is actually just 100 kms away, Sylhet, is an international airport.
I don't see anything unusual in the proposals in the newspaper report.
I would consider the reactions in this forum to be a joke and a reflection of inadequate knowledge about NE's geography and people.
