Sep 30 2014 (07:25) A sweet swansong to narrow gauge line in Silchar (www.assamtribune.com)

SILCHAR – The denizens of Silchar assembled in a unique swansong journey boarding onto the 15694 Down Barak Valley Express, the passenger train which chugged in for the last time from the Silchar Railway Station on Monday at 9:25am.
The railway station campus saw old-timers and youths alike joining to bid goodbye to the meter gauge train which has been a part of the lives of the people here for past many years. While the members of Nagarik Swartha Raksha Sangram Parishad spoke about the history of the narrow gauge lines and hoped the broad-gauge will soon arrive here, people were seen sharing their experiences of travelling by the trains on these meter gauge lines over the years. The youngsters were

upbeat with happiness to bid adieu to the meter gauge services with songs and loud cheer acknowledging its contribution in the lives of the people of this region disturbed by communication bottlenecks.
According to sources, two trains from Silchar travelled on the last day before the proposed Mega Block by the NF Railway comes into effect from October 1. The 52590 Down Silchar-Karimganj set forth on its journey at 6 am and hours later, the Lumding bound Barak Valley Express was flagged off for one last time with 13 coaches leaving behind a history and memories that would be etched in the hearts and minds of the people here. However, according to railway sources, a special train which left from Lumding on Sunday night is the last train which will enter the Silchar Railway Station before the NF Railways take over for the commencement of mega block.
“We have shared the history of this narrow-gauge rail line. The contribution of this narrow-gauge line which is approximately 200 years now has been phenomenal. We were fortunate to have the train services in those days. But as a matter of change, we want this replacement for good. We are eagerly waiting for the broad-gauge to whistle from Silchar and also want a part of the meter gauge trains to be kept as a memoir for the future generation,” said Dr Rajib Kar. He added to say that the people want reflections of the historic language movement of May 19, 1961 when the station would undergo renovation.
“We bid you farewell with a heavy heart, yet we are happy because you will arrive again in a new and much better way. You will be in our memory, good bye, good bye,” echoed a section of the gathering.
In the words of Moloy Bhattacharjee, a retired teacher and now a columnist, train lines in the hilly terrain of North East began in February, 1904. The authorities of the-then Assam-Bengal Railways had planned for a 736 mile railway track from Dibrugarh to the South Chittagong port. Bhattacharjee, who has been doing studies on the problems and issues that deter the gauge conversion in the said route, said “We have been promised of better railway services 18 years ago. However, it is good that the old is going to be replaced by the new: which is a must is considering the landlocked situation of this valley.”

KARIMGANJ – 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.
