History[edit]

During the period of 1893 to 1896, (1,287 km (800 mi) of South Eastern Railway zone ) this historic Brahmapur station was built and opened to traffic in 1896. Bengal Nagpur Railway’s line to Brahmapur (Berhampur) was opened on 1 January 1899.[1]

The 514 km (319 mi) long northern section of the South Eastern Railway was merged with BNR in 1902.[2]

Railway reorganization[edit]

The Bengal Nagpur Railway was nationalized in 1944.[3]Eastern Railway was formed on 14 April 1952 with the portion of East Indian Railway Company east of Mughalsarai and the Bengal Nagpur Railway.[4] In 1955, South Eastern Railway was carved out of Eastern Railway. It comprised lines mostly operated by BNR earlier.[4][5] Amongst the new zones started in April 2003 were East Coast Railway and South East Central Railway. Both these railways were carved out of South Eastern Railway.[4]
