Nizamabad Railway Station is an A-Category[4] railway station which serves the city of Nizamabad, Telangana, India. It is a major station on Secunderabad-Manmad railway line. The station falls under Hyderabad railway division of South Central Railway which is one of the zones of Indian Railways. Due to overgrowth on the western side of the city, the Jankampet Junction railway station on west corridor falls under Nizamabad.

History[edit]

The Nizam of Hyderabad ruled over the Deccan region during 18th century and under his reign the railway line between Secundrabad and Manmad was constructed in the year 1905.[5]The railway station was named after then ruler of the Nizam state Nizam-ul-Mulk as Nizamabad.

On 30 June 2004 the SCR operated the last metre gauge train on the NizamabadManoharabad line[6] bringing to an end the metre gauge services which started in the 1930s on the Secunderabad–Manmad line of the Nizam's State Railways (formerly Hyderabad-Godavari Valley Railways)
