DHR Line Re-opened

Following an inspection on Tuesday 1 December 2015 the DHR resumed scheduled services between NJP/Siliguri & Kurseong

Details of Train Timetables and Travel Information see

Travel Information page  Updated 14/10/2016

DHR services between New Jalpaiguri/Siliguri and Kurseong remain suspended due to the emergency use by heavy road vehicles of the railway track formation at Tindharia. Resumption of rail services is dependent on road repairs elsewhere and a completion date for that work is yet to be announced.(14 October 2016).
