Lohardaga Station, station code LAD, is the railway station serving the city of Lohardaga which is the headquarters of the Lohardaga district in the Indian state of Jharkhand. Lohardaga Station belongs to the Ranchi division of the South Eastern Railway Zone of the Indian Railway.[1]


The 68 kilometres (42 mi) railway track was converted from narrow gauge (2'6") to broad gauge in 2005. The track is planned to be extended 44 km more to connect with Tori railway station in Chandwa town in Latehar district. This would reduce the railway distance between Ranchi and Delhi and the railway travel time by three hours. However the construction of a tunnel under the hill between Lohardaga and Tori has not been completed even in a decade. The track has been laid only for 14 km from Lohardaga to Barkichampi and laying of the track on the remaining 30 km running through dense forests has been delayed by terrorist activities of maoists.
