History[edit]

After connecting Varanasi with Lucknow, the Oudh and Rohilkhand Railway started working west of Lucknow and it reached Bareilly in 1873. A line connecting Moradabad to Chandausi was also built in 1872 and it was continued up to Bareilly in 1873. The Bareilly-Moradabad chord was completed in 1894. The former main line became Chandausi Loop and the one via Rampur became main line. It was extended to Shahranpur in 1886.[1][2] A branch line to Aligarh was opened in 1894.[1]

Electrification[edit]

The survey for railway electrification of the Moradabad-Aligarh line, including the Chandausi-Bareilly sector, was sanctioned in the budget for 2012-13.[3]
