N.F. Railway resumes operation of freight train services In Lumding - Badarpur Hill Section

Maligaon, 13th July, 2022:

In view of landslides and water logging due to incessant rain and resultant breaches and track damages in more than 60 locations of Lumding - Badarpur hill section of the Lumding division, services of passenger and freight trains had to be cancelled from second week of May, 2022. Northeast Frontier Railway has put all its efforts in restoring the damaged section and re-starting the train services as early as possible by braving all odds. As a result of which, freight train services in the Lumding - Badarpur hill section resumed last night after a prolonged gap of almost two months.

The first freight train carrying sugar has left last night for Jirania station (near Agartala) from Daotuhaja station. Another freight train, loaded with steel coils has left from Manderdisa for Bhairabi station (in Mizoram). Several more freight trains carrying commodities like stone chips, rice, etc will also be operated in this section to fulfil the supply gap. N. F. Railway is also making arrangements to bring back the empty freight rakes that were stuck in different sections of the devastated hill section since last two months. This will help operation of more trains.

It may be mentioned here that both railways and roadways in the Dima Hasao district got damaged owing to incessant rain. As a result, the entire hill section remained cut off with rest of the country by rail connectivity for the last two months. Railways being the bulk transporter of essentials items including POL products for states like Tripura, Manipur, Mizoram and the entire Barak Valley areas of Assam; immediate filling up of shortages of essential and construction commodities are essential. Considering all these aspects, N. F. Railway has started running of freight carrying train with essential and non - essential commodities to make-good the shortage of day to day commodities for the people of affected areas. N. F. Railway is all set to resume the passenger train services as early as possible during the current month itself.

Out of the 1600 passengers, 119 were evacuated by the Indian Air Force.

Stranded passengers of train no. 15615 at New Haflong were moved to Maibang station by buses. 204 passengers had left for Guwahati from Maibang yesterday. Around 169 stranded passenger left for Guwahatifrom Maibang station at 04.30 AM today.

About 571more stranded passengers at Ditokchera station have also been rescued today. The last evacuation special from KM 135 up to Badarpur and Silchar moved at 07:30 pm.

With this Northeast Frontier Railway has successfully completed the evacuation of all the stranded passengers.

N. F. Railway conducted the rescued and relief operations of stranded train passengers o­n war footing under the supervision of senior officers of Lumding division and headquarters. Staffs of

Having rescued and evacuated all the passengers, Railways is now putting all its efforts in restoring the damaged line and re-starting the train services to South Assam, Manipur, Tripura and Mizoram. The continued rain in the area has caused landslides at many more locations. New Haflong station is completely inundated with debris. The empty passenger train standing at the station has been washed off from the tracks due to a massive landslide. The number of breach locations have increased to 53 today (26 locations were indentified yesterday). However, the restoration works at 11 locations have already been completed.

Northeast Frontier Railway is working o­n war footing to ensure connectivity to the affected region.
