Information gathered by The Tribune revealed that because of the maintenance of the track, the rail services had been suspended temporarily. It was also revealed that the roofs of new coaches were leaking and the same were under repair. But the train services could not be restored.
The Kangra valley railway line is in the state of neglect. The Railways has made no efforts to improve the rail track.
The British had laid down the railway line in 1932 linking all important and religious towns of Kangra and part of Mandi districts. At present, seven trains are plying on this route daily covering 33 stations passing through Nurpur, Jwali, Jwalamukhi Road, Kangra, Nagrota Bagwan, Chamunda, Palampur, Baijnath and Jogindernagar, which are also the major tourist attractions.
Inaugurated on Feb 6
