Sevagram railway station is a railway station serving Sevagram town, in Wardha district of Maharashtra state of India. It is under Nagpur railway division of Central Railway zone of Indian Railways. It is an important junction station on the Howrah–Nagpur–Mumbai line and New Delhi–Chennai main line of the Indian Railways.
The first passenger train in India travelled from Mumbai to Thane on 16 April 1853. By May 1854, Great Indian Peninsula Railway's Bombay–Thane line was extended to Kalyan. Bhusawal railway station was set up in 1860, and in 1867 the GIPR branch... more...
line was extended to Nagpur.
Before establishment of Sevagram railway station, north–south-bound trains had to get their engines reversed in opposite direction, which was a very time-consuming process. To avoid this problem, a new station for halting north–south-bound trains was established in 1985, named Sevagram railway station (also previously called as Wardha East station). Since then, trains running on New Delhi–Chennai main line halt at Sevagram railway station, bypassing Wardha railway station.
The railways in the Badnera–Wardha sector were electrified in 1990–1991.
The station has been equipped with new Route Relay Interlocking (RRI) for faster train operation.
One amazing trivia is the extremely steep rail curve towards the south of the station. Even the fastest trains slow down considerably after/before Sevagram station in order to mediate this curve.
