This is one of the Pvt Buses Goes From Durgapur to Tata via Bankura Khatra Ranibandh. This is the fastest way to reach SER side Cities in comparision to ASN-TATA trains via PRR or by going to HWH and then to TATA.
Other Buses are also to TATA via Purulia from Durgapur Station Bus depot. 2 SBSTC Buses are there for which Tickets are available in SBSTC depot outside the SB.
Like this buses are available for every SER side city from DGR Station depot. Even You can book private cabs upto
any distance no matter its Jharkhand(Bokaro Ranchi Etc) cities.

Lovely photos with detailed information by you.... I think that these tracks near and at Durgapur will be upgraded from 130 to 160 Kmph when #EDFC track construction will commence in this area... at the moment land acquisition has been taking place between Dehri and Dhanbad. The other stretch is Dhanbad - Dankuni where things will take time due to land issues... Durgapur will become a Junction on one of the most high-speed routes in the years to come. Any idea about the Durgapur - Joynagar Line's status ? :-)

Not even a rumor about any line from durgapur. A line to SER will solve many many problems and make many Assam - South bound trains will be made faster.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
