upper Assam region.Post the Partition of Bangladesh in 1947 the Lumding-Badarpur section however became the only life-line for land-locked Tripura, Mizoram, the Barak Valley in southern Assam as also south-eastern Manipur due to the borders.
.
The 111 year old MG line became history in 2014 to make way for a broad gauge track as a part of the uni-gauge Project of Indian Railways. Presently Broad Gauge Services have began on this line initially Freight Services were started and now the Passenger and Express Trains have become functional connecting the Northeast to the rest of India. Lumding-Badarpur section belongs to the Lumding division of Northeast Frontier Railways. Badarpur is a important Junction from where the lines branch towards Silchar and Agartala.
The video is a compilation of the Train Journey on the Meter Gauge Brarak Valley Express from Lumding to Silchar. Enjoy the true rich beauty of the least explored North East.
.
The MG Trains that ran on this section are Lumding - Silchar Cachar Express and Barak Valley Express, Lumding - Agartala Express and the Lumding - Halflong Hill Queen Express.The line is highly dominated by the Freight Trains.

Enjoy watching Trains from a completely different angle !
Below the BRIDGE up the TRAIN : Indian Railways click here
.
Enjoy watching some breathtaking visuals of trains from underneath a Tall Steel span girder bridge.The trains produce rhythmic beats and thunders as it glides over the metal span. All the trains here are hauled by Diesel Locomotives ( ALCo's and EMD's)
...
more...
as the Electrification is still under progress.The speed on the bridge is limited to 60 KPH and much lesser during monsoons. Span bridges require a lot of maintenance and man power through out the year hence Indian Railways are no longer constructing Girder bridges on newly laid lines. For the want of higher speed and low maintenance bridges these days are constructed using ballast and cement. The sound produced by the trains while moving on these legacy bridges is a Music to the ears of a Train lover .Enjoy the video.
.
The Bangalore - Guntakal stretch is presently a Single line Section and a very important line for North Bound trains connecting to Bangalore from New Delhi, Mumbai, Pune,Hyderabad , Nagpur,Vijayawada and many more places. The line sees a huge Freight traffic apart from the regular passenger trains.
