BAROG (42.14Km/Height- 1531 m above MSL)

The station has been named after Engineer Barog, who was the incharge of construction site of first unsuccessful tunnel. The Engineer Col. S. Barog, responsible for the construction of Barog tunnel, was fined Rs. 1/- by British authorities, when he failed to connect both the ends of this tunnel while burrowing. He committed suicide with his dog being frustrated over his failure, as both ends of the tunnel did not meet. His grave still exists near the face of unsuccessful tunnel, about 1 Km. upside of existing tunnel. This is one of the most beautiful stations of this section. The longest tunnel (No.33) with a length of 1143.61m is situated just near the station towards Kalka end. After the uphill journey the train runs down the hill from Barog.
