Rajdhani Express

Some passengers from North Lakhimpur, who boarded the train on its maiden journey, were also welcomed by the BJYM at the railway station.

The stop of Rajdhani Express in North Lakhimpur marks as a significant day for the communication history of Lakhimpur district.

It was a long-standing demand of the people of the district since the opening of the rail-cum-road Bogibeel Bridge in late 2018 to operate a Rajdhani Express through this route.

The train would also stop at Harmutty Junction in Lakhimpur district.
