Before Farakka Barrage was made, trains to Northern Bengal & Assam used to run upto Rajmahal/RJL & Farakka/FKK, then passengers crossed Ganga by ferry & proceeded onwards. After Farakka barrage was made & the Rail-cum-Road Bridge thrown open in 1971/72, Farakka Station was closed & lines towards Farakka station were dismantled. Rajmahal station lost its importance as a train-ferry crossing station since 1972. Trains to Kolkata, Patna & Delhi from Rajmahal were withdrawn. Now just irregular shuttle service between Rajmahal & Tinpahar Jn. is left running. Rajmahal railway station is located 328 kilometres (204 mi) from Sealdah Junction Railway Station & 314 kilometres (195 mi) from Howrah Junction Railway Station
