Picture taken by Santanu Banerjee on 16 November 2014 of a ‘down’ train going along the cliff edge below Tindharia works.
There is still the massive landslip near Pagla Jhora, above Gayabari, rebuilding is almost complete and the line is expected to be open by the end of December 2014, watch this space for details. Test trains have gone across the newly laid line and official re-opening is expected soon.
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.
