#BDR Masagram - Bankura route
➡️One of unique location to me where ER & SER meet as Masagram/ER & Masagram Jn./SER
➡️The terminal end of the Bankura Damodar Railway (BDR) is Masagram Jn./SER.From here passengers have to change to the ER station!
➡️The BDR (common name) operates Four pair DEMU trains, having a crossing station at Sonamukhi,as the whole route "HAS NO SIGNALS"
...
more...
except at Sonamukhi! The system of working is "One Train Only" or OTO System between Sonamukhi - Bankura & Sonamukhi - Masagram sections.
➡️Here at Masagram Jn./SER,they have a Crew Lobby.
➡️The tickets are issued by Eastern Railways at Masagram/ER

Brief history: This was a NG line operated by London based McLead Russell & Co. Ltd. The NG line existed between Bankura & Rainagar, opened in 1917 & shutdown in 1995 due to extensive losses. The section was converted to BG during 2005-2008 & extended to Masagram. The Bankura-Rainagar section or Bankura Damodar River valley Railways was commonly known as BDR (hence i used #BDR at starting, clicking on this will give access to all posts related to the section). The commuters rephrased the acronym 'BDR' to 'Boro Dukkher Rail' which means 'very sad rail' signifying the plight of slow trains, which used to run out of water or broke down in middle.
