History

The 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in) wide metre gauge line from Dibrugarh steamer ghat to Makum was opened to passenger traffic on 16 July 1883.

The metre gauge railway track earlier laid by Assam Bengal Railway from Chittagong to Lumding was extended to Tinsukia on the Dibru-Sadiya line in 1903.

The project for the conversion of the Lumding-Dibrugarh section from metre gauge to 1,676 mm (5 ft 6 in) wide broad gauge was completed by the end of 1997.
