Pic: Sikkim Rail Foundation Stone at Rangpo

The foundation stone for a railway link from Sevoke near Siliguri to Rangpo, a town on the Bengal-Sikkim border, was laid on Friday. The project will put Sikkim on the railway map of India. It is now linked to the rest of the country only by road, NH 31A. The tracks will cover a distance of 52.7km. Work is expected to be complete in five years.
