15th February 2014 Re-Opening of the DHR at Tindharia by
Shri Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Honourable Minister of State for Railways.

Trains will 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.

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.

The first picture we have received of this historic event when the DTL charter was the very first steam working along the new alignment and on up to Gayabari

Trains can now travel from NJP to Gayabari over the bottom half of the line.
