Jammu. Indian Railways successfully conducted a trial run of an eight-coach MEMU train on the world’s highest railway bridge – Chenab Bridge – in Jammu and Kashmir. The move will pave the way for the start of rail service on the route from Reasi to Baramulla in Kashmir.

In a statement, Railway Ministry said, the trial run was conducted on a 46-km-long electrified line section between Sangaldan in Ramban district and Reasi at a speed of 40 mph. It was the first-ever full train that crossed the iconic bridge between Dugga and Bakkal stations across the Chenab River, which is the world’s highest arch railway bridge.

The Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Rail Link project, including the 48.1-km-long Banihal-Sangaldan section, was inaugurated by Prime Minister on the 20th of February this year.
