Presenting some pictures of probably the most under-rated NSG 2 railway station of ER, and probably amongst the most over-looked in IR! I had gone to my aunt's house and spent some time at and around Naihati Junction. Naihati is probably the most important railway junction on the Sealdah-Krishnanagar City Main line. A 3 point junction Naihati has railways lines branching off to Bandel Jn on the HWH-BWN Main line, Ranaghat and Krishnanagar (further lines diverge from Ranaghat, Kalinarayanpur and Krishnanagar respectively).
There is a newly built Naihati bypass line to allow seamless access to Ranaghat from Bandel side without undergoing any rake reversals at Naihati.
is also an important sub-urban terminal and passing station on the Sealdah-Ranaghat line. Local trains orginate from NH to BDC ( Amongst the shortest countrywide), NH to SDAH and several other stations on the Sealdah South and on the Calcutta Circular Route. Naihati is also the gateway to Hoogly district via the Hoogly river too.
Picture 1-2 :- Aerodynamic Shell Ludhiana WAG-7 draws a freight load into the impressive Naihaiti Marshaling yard with the NH RRI in the background.
Picture 3-4 :- UP Sealdah-Shantipur Local arrives on platform number 2 at NH.
Picture 5-6:- Beliaghata (Sealdah) (BGA) WDS-6 36076 puttering along in NH yard.
Picture 7:- Naihaiti station board.
Picture 8:- Legendary Bengali novelist and writer of "Vande Mataram", Bankim Chandra Chattopadhay's ancestral house just beside Naihaiti station. This has been transformed into a museum.
Picture 9:- Deep inside Naihati freight yard BWN ALCO WDM-3A 16452 waits with a freight load in tow, waiting for starter.
Picture 10-11 DOWN Ranaghat-Sealdah Local departing from Naihati Junction, taken from the freight yard side.
Picture 12 :- DOWN Naihati-Sealdah Local set to depart from platform number 1.
Picture 13 :- Platform number 1 of Naihaiti Junction.
Picture 14:- MEMU Rake of ER ASN MEMU Carshed being used as RPH-SDAH MEMU. Wonder what is the RSA here (ASN-BWN-RPH-SDAH-BWN probably)!
Picture 15 :- Shot of Ganges (hoogly) from the Mechuabazar Ferry Ghat.
Picture 16-17 :- Mechuabazar Ferry Ghat with the Jubilee Bridge and the Sampreeti Setu in the background.
Picture 18:- ASN WAG-5 23317 hauls the SDAH-LGL Fast passenger into platform number 3 at NH JN!
