Picture taken by Santanu Banerjee on 16 November 2014 of a ‘down’ train going along the cliff edge below Tindharia works. Work on the new temporary railway line just below the Tindharia Workshops. The replacement of the road will have to wait for the rebuilding of the hillside to right of the lower picture.

DHR services between New Jalpaiguri/Siliguri and Kurseong remain suspended due to the emergency use by heavy road vehicles of the railway track formation at Tindharia. Resumption of rail services is dependent on road repairs elsewhere and a completion date for that work is yet to be announced.(14 October 2016).
Picture taken by Peter Jordan in February 2015. Highway workers & stores building at side of track, still working out how to repair the road. See Landslip pictures.
