The Allahabad–Jabalpur section is a railway line connecting Allahabad and Jabalpur. This 366 km (227 mi) track is part of the Howrah-Allahabad-Mumbai line. The main line is under the jurisdiction of North Central Railway and West Central Railway

History

The East Indian Railway, which had established the Howrah-Delhi main line via Allahabad, opened the Allahabad-Jabalpur branch line in June 1867. The Great Indian Peninsula Railway connection reached Jabalpur from Itarsi on 7 March 1870, linking up with the EIR track there from Allahabad, and establishing connectivity between Mumbai and Kolkata.[2][3]

The Jhansi-Manikpur line was opened in 1889 by Indian Midland Railway.[2]

The Mahoba-Khajuraho branch line was inaugurated in 2008.[3]

Electrification

The 605 km long Naini-Manikpur-Katni-itarsi route and the 479 km long Katni-Singrauli-Garwa Road route have been identified for electrification under Vision 2020 – A Blue print for Railway Electrification Programme.[10]

Speed limits

The Allahabad-Bhusawal section is classified as 'B' class where trains can run up to 130 km/h. On the branch lines trains can run up to 100 km/h.[4]

Passenger movement

Allahabad, Satna, Katni and Jabalpur, on the main line are amongst the top hundred booking stations of Indian Railway.[15]
