The Queen that once offered one of the most beautiful views of the hills to tourists is now languishing on her tracks.
The Northeast Frontier Railway has no immediate plans to start the Hill Queen Express train that used to run from the Haflong to Lumding section in Assam.
The train service was discontinued after the conversion of the Silchar-Lumding metre-gauge rail track into broad gauge in November 2015.

the Hill Queen Express started from Lower Haflong station and ran upto Lumding Junction, covering a journey of 102km, had three halts on its route, including both source and destination stations.
It was a great attraction for the tourists as it offered a beautiful view of the hills.
The most scenic part of the journey is the ascent from Lumding to Haflong Hill.
After completing a three-day visit to Barak Valley, the divisional railway manager of NF Railways’ Lumding division, Ashis Sharma, said on Monday night that there was a dearth of coaches and they were unable to start the Hill Queen Express.
He admitted that the train was a symbol of the heritage of railways and is a tourist attraction.
He said the various organisations of Dima Hasao district had demanded the resumption of train services for tourists.
The newly constructed broad-gauge line runs about 50 per cent along the old metre gauge alignment.
The 210km track has 79 major bridges, 340 minor bridges and 21 tunnels.
The longest tunnel is 3.235km, while the tallest bridge over the river Doyang is 54 metres.
There are 33 stations in the Silchar-Lumding section.
Sharma said he was interested in beautifying the stations and tunnels in the section from Lumding to Badarpur and Silchar like the Tripura section of the track, with artworks and sketches. He urged artists to come forward.
Sharma also inspected the trains and stations of Barak Valley.
He interacted with all categories of staff and passengers regarding the development of the section.

HAFLONG, Jan 12 - Demanding a train from New Haflong and the revival of ‘Heritage line’, the people of Dima Hasao submitted a representation to the General Manager of NF Railway through the Deputy Commissioner of Dima Hasao, Amarendra Barua, recently.
They appreciated the efforts of Railway to run BG fast passengers train in between Guwahti and Silchar. However, they claimed that the people of Dima Hasao were not at all benefitted in terms of accommodation from the train communication since the train was originating from Silchar or Guwahati.
Though the major portion

of Lumding-Silchar BG section falls in Dima Hasao, but the people would remain deprived of train communication.
Moreover, as the BG line has left out the old MG section from Mahur to Harangajao, at least 260 villages of the district are badly affected socially and economically as the villagers were solely dependent on the MG rail communication.

HAFLONG – Though there are doubts in the minds of the people regarding the timely completion of the much publicised Lumding-Silchar BG conversion project but, if the present pace of works is maintained, there is every possibility that the project will be completed in time, conscious citizens of Dima Hasao have observed.
The Lumding-Silchar project of the NF Railway will connect the entire southern Assam including Dima Hasao and the neighbouring States like Tripura, Mizoram, and Manipur to the main land of the country.
This project started back in 1996 and got

the National project status in 2006. From Manderdisa to Dittokcherra, the major portion of the entire project falls in the district of Dima Hasao for which the people of the district sacrificed a lot in terms of environment, agricultural land, proper communication etc.
This time the Railway authority is confident enough to complete the project in time, that is, within March 31, 2015 and the top brass of the Railway including the Chairman of the Railway Board also visited the area and the much-discussed Tunnel No 10 near Jatinga. The Railway officials also hurriedly inaugurated the newly-constructed New Haflong Station in the month of May itself. The pace of the ongoing works in the entire area got momentum following the Mega Block starting from October 1, 2014.
A railway official requesting anonymity said though the railway has overcome several hurdles now, but the stretches near Muolkoi and Rekho were still critical as both BG and East- West corridor go parallel here and the area is landslide prone.
The Deputy Commissioner, Dima Hasao Barun Bhuyan, while talking to this correspondent expressed his satisfaction over the present pace of the ongoing project and said the railway might complete the BG conversion within its stipulated time.
The people of entire southern Assam including Dima Hasao, and the neighbouring States would surely appreciate the Railway authority for completion of the project at least on target this time.
