Position of Railway Transport in Nepal

Railways are an important mode of transport for passengers and goods for projects. Nepal's network of railway transport consisted of:
  • Raxaul - Amlekhgunj Line (non operational)
  • Janakpur - Jayanagar Line
  • Raxaul - Birgunj Dryport Line
The Raxaul - Amlekhganj line became non operational after the opening up of Tribhuvan Highway which linked Kathmandu to India. At present Janakpur - Jayanagar line, which is 51 kilometers in length, is operational. Raxaul - Birgunj Dryport line has recently become operational with Indian Aid for import and export purposes.
