HistoryEdit

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.[1][2]

The Jhansi–Manikpur line was opened in 1889 by Indian Midland Railway.[3]

The Mahoba–Khajuraho branch line was inaugurated in 2008.[4]

ElectrificationEdit

Prayagraj to Jabalpur section is completely electrified

Speed limitsEdit

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.[5]

Passenger movementEdit

Allahabad, Satna, Katni and Jabalpur, on the main line are amongst the top hundred booking stations of Indian Railway.[6]

The former has WDM-2, WDM-3A, WDG-3A, WDG-4, WDG-4D and the only WDG-3C "Cheetah" diesel locomotives. The latter holds 170+ WAG-5 and WAG-7 electric locomotives and has a large marshalling yard attached to it.[7]
