The Symphony of Progress Saga of Eastern Railway is an interesting coffee table book. Eastern Railway or ER for short was created on 14th April 1952. By integrating the British-era East Indian Railway (EIR) and the whole of the Bengal-Nagpur Railway (BNR). Thus the Eastern Railway’s jurisdiction extended from Howrah to Mughalsarai in the north. To Visakhapatnam in the south, and to Nagpur in central India.
Consequently, the Eastern Railway would repeatedly be split up into various divisions. Beginning from Howrah, the trunk route of the Eastern Railway runs 221 km to Sitarampur. From there it takes two directions toward Delhi, one via Patna and the other via Dhanbad – Gaya. Both these routes converge again at Mughalsarai Station of the East Central Railway.
