Picture taken by Santanu Banerjee on 16 November 2014 of a ‘down’ train going along the cliff edge below Tindharia works.
Trains are now be able to travel from NJP/Siliguri to Gayabari. There is still the massive landslip at Pagla Jhora, above Gayabari, to be rebuilt to allow trains over the full length of the line, it is hoped to be finished by late 2014.
Work on the new temporary railway line just below the Tindharia Workshops. The replacement of the road will have to wait for the rebuilding of the hillside to right of the lower picture.
