We unravel India's longest train route along with the world's longest train route and how they compare to each other, read more to find out the details of the interesting journeys.
Trains, the magnificent machines that were once powered by mechanical steam engines, have always fascinated mankind. Interesting facts about railways further ignite the curiosity in the mind of travellers. For instance, have you wondered why the distance between the tracks is fixed at 3.50 m or ADDED ONE MORE FACT? If yes, and you are into all things railways, we’ve got you covered! But today, we are addressing the Indian Railways and, more specifically, the longest train route the behemoth organization covers. We will also concisely talk about how the longest train

route in the world compares to the longest train route in India.
But, before we start, it is essential to understand the Indian Railways first. To count a few imperative facts about the organization, Indian Railways has one of the largest rail networks in the world with a history of 168 years and 1,26,611 km of tracks covering the whole country based on the 2021 data. This vast rail network is divided into 17 zones. What's even more astonishing is that the Indian Railways carried 3.43 million passengers every day from 2020-21.
The train route between Dibrugarh to Kanyakumari is the longest train route in India and also finds its place among the longest routes in the world as well. Before we start spitting the facts, it's crucial to mention that apart from one who needs to travel on the route, people can also embark on the journey for the fun of it. The fun of moving through different climates, terrain, and linguistic regions and having the first-hand experience of various cultures along the way.
The Vivek Express covers India's longest railway route, travelling 4273 kilometers over rails in 80 hours and 15 minutes with roughly 55 scheduled stops. It connects the northernmost tip of India's mainland, Kanyakumari (CAPE), in Tamil Nadu, to Dibrugarh (DBRG), in Assam, in the northeast. It follows the same path on the way back as well.  The Vivek Express train series began in November 2011 to commemorate Swami Vivekananda's 150th birth anniversary, which was to be held in 2013. When the nationwide lockdown to combat COVID-19 was announced in March 2020, this train was the last to suspend operations.
The train passes through load of stations from north to south like Tinsukia, Dimapur, Guwahati, Bongaigaon, Alipurduar, Siliguri, Kishanganj, Malda, Rampurhat, Pakur, Durgapur, Asansol, Kharagpur, Balasore, Cuttack, Bhubaneswar, Khordha, Brahmapur, Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam, Samalkot, Rajahmundry, Eluru, Vijayawada, Ongole, Nellore, Renigunta, Vellore, Salem, Erode, Coimbatore, Palakkad, Thrissur, Aluva, Ernakulam, Kottayam, Chengannur, Kollam, Thiruvananthapuram and Nagercoil.
The longest train route in the world, unsurprisingly, is in Russia, the world's largest country. The train journey takes six days and crosses multiple time zones. It connects western Russia to the country's far east. You begin your journey in Moscow and arrive in Vladivostok after six days and approximately 9,250 kilometers. Which when compared to India's longest train route still seems like quite a journey. To be exact is 4977 km longer which is more than double.

“The objective of the re-development is to upgrade the station in line with modern day requirements by providing state-of-the-art passenger amenities, while highlighting its historical significance,” RLDA said in a statement.
The redeveloped station will be equipped with amenities such as segregation of arrival and departure, excellent road connectivity with multi-modal transport integration, security and surveillance systems and many more. The station will be redeveloped on a DBFOT model under the PPP (Public Private Partnership) mode.
Dudeja also paid tributes to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose at his birthplace during his visit to Cuttack on the occasion of his 125th birth anniversary.
Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA) is a statutory body under the Ministry of Railways, for the development of vacant Railway land.
It has four key mandates as a part of development - leasing of commercial sites, colony redevelopment, station redevelopment and multi-functional complex development.
RLDA is currently working on 62 stations in a phased manner while its subsidiary, IRSDC has taken up another 61 stations. The railway stations across India will be redeveloped on a PPP Model as a part of Smart City Projects launched by the Government of India.
Currently, the Indian Railway has approximately 43,000 hectares of vacant land across India. RLDA has over 84 commercial (greenfield) sites across India for leasing, and the eligible developers for each will be selected through an open and transparent bid process.
RLDA is currently also handling 84 railway colony redevelopment projects and has recently leased out a railway colony in Guwahati for redevelopment.
Apart from Cuttack Railway station, RLDA will also redevelop Puri, Bhadrak, Brahmapur, Sambhalpur, Rayagada, Balasore, Jharsuguda and Rourkela railway stations in Orissa.
