Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Gomoh Railway Station.
#History:- Gomoh is a census town in Dhanbad district
in the Indian state of Jharkhand. It is a major
junction (renamed Netaji Subhas
Chandra Bose Gomoh railway station on 23
January 2009) situated on the Grand Chord
Line under Dhanbad division of the East
Central Railway. Gomoh is the meeting point
for trains coming from Howrah (Eastern
Railway), Ranchi/Bokaro (South Eastern
Railway) and Puri (South Eastern Railway).
Gomoh is a place of historical importance
also. On his great escape, Netaji Subhash
Chandra Bose caught Howrah- Kalka Mail
(then known as 63UP Howrah-Peshawar
Express) on 18 January 1941. There is a
statue of Netaji on platform no. 1 & 2 at
Gomoh railway station which reminds people
of his historic halt. Every year on 23 January,
the railway employees organize a small
cultural program to celebrate Netaji's
birthday. People of this city also organize a
week-long fair in Railway Football Ground
starting from 11 March every year in
remembrance of the assassinated 'Labour
Leader' Sadanand Jha. There are two big
playgrounds in Gomoh.
