    Jalandhar--Nakodar Railway Line

    The Branch Jalandhar-Nakodar railway line has some features( now forgotten )associated with its past. During First World War(1914-1918) Jalandhar Cantt was an important British Military outpost both for men and material. Railways were the most important means of transport(especially long route).So the Britishers extended a railway line to Jalandhar Cantt This Jalandhar Cantt. line branched out from the Jalandhar - Nakodar line at point of present day Punjab Avenue Unmanned Railway Crossing( near now decommissioned Brick Kiln ).From here to the site of Subji Mandi and onward to
    Cantt. After the track was dismantled, it was converted to present day road on the same alignment.


    Another poignant memory connected with Jalandhar- Nakodar Railway line is with the violent times of 1947 when India was divided along communal lines . At that time Garha was an important village of Jalandhar,with equal number of Majority and the now Minority communities. But for no fault of theirs, some people were forced to leave for Pakistan. During those shameful times of violence and insanity, a train would come on the Nakodar Line near " Ganda Nullah Railway Phatak" ( the now decommissioned Garha Disposal )Railway Crossing to take migrants to the newly created Pakistan . At that time, the now posh colony of Urban Estate Phase One, was agriculture fields sandwitched between Village Garha and Nakodar Railway Line. Hapless people would dart out, without any Govt protection, from Garha carrying their valuables. Their goal was to reach safety of the standing train. Mobsters and looters would lie in ambush . The mute agricultural fields were witness to the deadly game of senseless loot and killing and the supreme tragedy associated with India's Independence.

    Jagadhri Light Railway Company Limited

    Light Railway of Jagadhri - Cententary in 2011

    Light Railway of Jagadhri started in 1911. It continued till 1950 when it stopped operations .It used to run between main Jagadhri ( Yamunanagar ) railway station to Matka Chowk ( Gaushala ) ( also , called Chhoti Line in local parlance ) in old Jagadhri town , a distance of 5 km.
    Gauge 2 '.
    The main line ( broad gauge ) was under NWR ( North Western Railway ). Main station broad gauge line connected most important cities like Howrah ( Kolkata ) and Kalka , Mumbai and Amritsar , Lahore and Landi Kotal ( Peshawar ). VIP trains of those times like the Frontier Mail and Kalka Mail passed ( and still do ) through Main Jagadhri station.

    Yamuanagar before 1947 was known as Abdullapur.

    When the railway started on the first day of its operation there was free ride for all. Around 1930 the fare was one anna. ( One Rupee = 16 annas ).
    The Light Railway was a privately owned enterprise ( by the Raja family of Jagadhri ) named " JAGADHRI LIGHT RAILWAY COMPANY LIMITED ".
    There still exists a ( Light ) Railway Bazar in Jagadhri but no railway station or railway line. The line has gone and so have gone nearly all the traces of the railway line.
    Platform no. 1 at the Main Jagadhri ( Yaiunanagar ) station was originally the terminus platform of the Light Railway . After the closure of the Light Railway this terminus was redone to incorporate it with the Main Line station . But some traces of the old Light Railway terminus and goods yard are still visible . Even today nearly all important trains pass through Platforms No . 2 and 3 and not No. 1 ( i.e. the old Light Railway Platform / terminus )
    Jalandhar residents with Jagadhri links want the Government to celebrate the centenary of Light Railway .
    There are some traces of the Light Railway at the Jagadhri ( Yamunanagar ) Railway Station from the Station Masjid towards the Main Radaur Road railway crossing ( Sugar Mill )
    Old Light Railway Yard

    Revolt ( Mutiny ) and Jalandhar--The Beginning

    When the Mutiny of 1857 occurred , Phillaur was occupied by some of the 3 rd Native Infantry . Part of the regiment was at Ludhiana . At Jullundur , the 6 th Light Cavalry , the 36 th and 61 st Native Infantry and some Native Artillery were stationed .The 8 th Foot and Horse with a troop of Artillery formed the European garrison . Brigadier Hartley was in command but was succeeded by Brigadier M.C. Johnstone before the actual outbreak occurred at Jullundur . The Civil Officers were Commissioner , Major Lake the Deputy Commissioner , Capt. Farrington ,the Assistant Commissioner , S.S, Hoggand the Extra Assistant Commissioner , G.Knox.
    Jullundur District was of great importance , as one of the main lines of communication between Punjab and Delhi passed through it, and was commanded , where it crossed the Sutlej , by the Phillaur Fort .Jullundur being rich in agricultural resources was able to supply ample means of carriage and other necessaries of an army engaged in the battle field.
    When news of the outbreak at Meerut arrived , on 12-05-1857 , Major Lake was not at Head -Quarters but Captain Farrington was present at a council held by Brigadier Hartley , at which it was decided to secure Phillaur and to establish telegraphic communication with it .Brown , the Superintendent of Telegraphs , had the telegraph at work by 10 o'clock the same evening and by 8 A.M. next morning the native troops had been replaced by 150 men of the 8 th Foot.Two guns were taken from Phillaur to Jullundur and with the two already there were placed under a guard of the same regiment.Two guns were equipped for service in any part of Jullundur District where required.
    The Tehsil at Jullundur was strengthened to serve as a fort. The men of the Sher-Dil police battalion were called in from the district. The treasure was placed under an European guard and all European inhabitants were brought together.The Raja of Kapurthala ,Randhir Singh ,was asked for help; but there was no need to ask as , on first intimation of the outbreak at Meerut ,he proceeded to Jullundur with all the troops he could collect , at with his brother remained there the whole of hot weather.To his influence the peace of the Town and District was largely due.
    The Civil Treasure , ordinarily kept under a sepoy guard at kutchery was transferred to the 8 th Regiment , but afterwards , by the orders of Brigadier Johnstone , placed in charge of the two Native Infntry Regiments in equal shares , while new remittances were forwarded to Phillaur . As the guard of the 36 th Native Infantry remained staunch to the last , only Rs.5000/- were lost when the storm broke.There was no lack of evidence to show that a mutinous spirit was in the native regiments .Constant fires had occurred in the Cantonments which are nearly 4 miles from the City and Civil Lines. Other signs of bad feeling had manifested . But the military authorities disregarded these warnings , placed confidence in their men , neglected an opportunity for disarming them ,and when the crisis came were found unprepared.

    At 11 P.M. on 07-06-1857 , afire broke out in Cantonments.

    Bundala ( Goraya - Nurmahal Highway ) - Let Us Preserve Our Heritage

    Located on present day Goraya-Nurmahal highway ( near Jalandhar ) one gets the feeling of a temple or a religious court .Frescoes of Gods viz. Kali Ma, rulers etc are no less than a treasure and a peek into history.

    A part of the compound serves as Govt. Vet Clinic.It has a Pre Independence Official Board,in Urdu.

    The heritage value and tourist potential of the place, with water filled pond, stair case (like Haridwar's), deep wells, halls, frescoes is being lost.

    Kind request to alert citizen, N.R.I., historians, academicians, Govt. officials and Archeological Survey of India (http://asi.nic.in/) in particular to consider aiding in justice to this magnificent court having marks of history.
