Bareilly Junction railway station (station code BE) is a railway station serving Bareilly city in Uttar Pradesh. It is an important Station as well as the headquarters of Izzatnagar railway division of the North Eastern Railway zone. It lies on Lucknow-Moradabad line and provides a stop for most trains passing through. Bareilly Junction used to serve both broad and metre gauge, but now the metre gauge is converted into broad gauge.
After the British Indian Government purchased the Indian Branch Railway on 31 March 1872, and renamed the Lucknow–Kanpur main line as the Oudh and Rohilkhand Railway, railway services started to expand towards the west of Lucknow. The construction of a railway line from Lucknow to Sandila and then further onwards to Hardoi was completed in 1872. This line was further extended to Bareilly on 1 November 1873. Prior to that, another railway line connecting Moradabad to Chandausi had already been built in 1872; it too was extended to Bareilly, the construction completed on 22 December 1873.
A new railway line connecting Bareilly and Moradabad via Rampur, called the Bareilly-Moradabad Chord, was approved on 4 December 1891, and was completed by 8 June 1894. On 8 December 1894, the main line was officially diverted to this chord, while the older line was renamed the Chandausi loop.
