The broad gauge line of Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) -- the lifeline of several north-eastern states -- was restored on Thursday, almost two months after it was damaged by heavy rains.
The restoration of the rail traffic will be a great relief for southern Assam, Tripura, Mizoram and parts of Manipur which are linked to the railway network of India through the NFR line.
Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) Pranav Jyoti Sharma said a new 300-metre track was laid to divert the route slightly at the problematic spot in

Migrendisa in Dima Hasao district of southern Assam.
"After running goods train on the route on an experimental basis for a few days, we will decide on resuming normal passenger train service," he told IANS over phone from NFR headquarters in Maligaon on the outskirts of Guwahati city.
Huge landslides triggered by downpour damaged the tracks on April 27. Good train traffic was restored on May 6, only to be disrupted again from May 13 onwards. That cut off southern Assam, Tripura, Mizoram and parts of Manipur from the railway network.
The NFR converted the 110 years old metre gauge line to broad gauge last year in south Assam, Tripura, Manipur and Mizoram. However, poor soil conditions are hampering running of trains on certain sections.
The Guwahati-Silchar rail route is the lifeline for southern Assam comprising Cachar, Karimganj, Hailakandi, Dima Hasao districts, and the mountainous states of Tripura, Manipur and Mizoram.
The region is dependent on the rail line for supply of food grain, essential commodities, fertilisers, petroleum products, construction materials and other goods.

HAFLONG, June 28 - “The resumption of Lumding-Silchar rail service which has remained disrupted since May 16 due to damage in the foundation of the track following landslides near Migrengdisa on route is likely to start from July 10 next though we have set July 7 as the target to open the line for traffic”, said a confident RP Jingar, Chief Engineer, NF Rly at the restoration site near Migrengdisa on Sunday.
Jingar, who is considered to be the most acquainted with the behaviour and character of this hill section and has also served for a long period in this hills section in many positions, disclosed that right from day one they have been trying their best to restore the communication and

had also succeeded for a few days. “But soon we become helpless at the hands of Nature, since a hillock of the size 150 metres by 60 metres depth began to slide at a 45 degree angle (not straight) causing swelling of the track foundation. We have adopted several means as prescribed by experts and also by the geologists but swelling of track foundation could not be checked as of now. Therefore we decided to divert the affected portion of 220 metre by cutting the hillock, which will require a few more days and also the absence of rain. But at the same we would also take care of the main track. At least 10 excavators were engaged to expedite the restoration work and several officials are doing their best day in and day out” Jingar said adding that he is concerned for the people of Dima Hasao in particular and appreciates them for their cooperation during such a situation.
Barun Adhikari, Geologist of GEO-Consultant, who has been monitoring each day’s work as well as the geological changes etc., said that the hillock on the side of the track measuring 150 meter X 60 metre and of depth 60 metre is moving 12 metre downwards at a 45 degree angle resulting in the swelling of the track foundation. “To check this swelling we have taken measures including using synthetic clothes on the upstream of hillock so that rain water would not go inside the cracked hillock which might minimise the sliding of the hillock.
The people of Dima Hasao while appreciating the untiring efforts of the Railway officials who are working day and night for the restoration of the train services and the recent resumption of the Silchar-Haflong train communication from June 23 for five days in a week appealed to the authority concerned to introduce a train between Lumding and Mahur also which would be a great help for the people southern Assam including Dima Hasao. The people of Dima Hasao have expressed their great satisfaction over the Railway authority for its concern for the people of the district.
