ABOUT THE ORGANISATIONIn 1875, a 45 mile rail line from Dalsingsarai to Darbhanga reached out to famine affected areas and became the cornerstone in the history of the North Eastern Railway.North Eastern Railway came into existence on 14th April 1952, when two complete railway systems viz. Oudh Tirhoot Railway & Assam Railway and Fatehgarh district of Old Bombay, Baroda and Central India Railway were merged into one system and was inaugurated by the first Prime Minister of India Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru. It stretched from Achnera near Agra in the West to Ledo near the border of West Bengal in the East.On 15th January 1958, it was divided into two Railways (i) the North East Frontier Railway and (ii) the North Eastern Railway with headquarter at Gorakhpur, comprising of five divisions viz. Izatnagar, Lucknow, Varanasi, Samastipur and Sonepur.On 1st October, 2002, Sonepur and Samastipur divisions of North Eastern Railway were merged with the newly created zone East Central Railway having its headquarter at Hajipur.Presently, North Eastern Railway has three divisions having headquarters at Varanasi, Lucknow and Izatnagar.
