With trains set to chug along the picturesque Kashmir Valley this summer, Railways have drawn a plan to set up nine railway stations in the region.



The railway stations would come up at Anantnag, Baijpora, Pampore, Kakapora, Awantipora, Rajvoser, Srinagar and Budgam and Baramulla, northern railway sources told PTI.



Some of these stations have already come up and others are under the process of completion, they said adding that one car shed for repairs too has come up at Budgam.



Over 15 bogies, three engines and track repair vehicle have already been sent to the Kashmir valley.



The trial run of the inaugural train was conducted in February. The trial started from central Badgam district railway station and ended at Panzgam railway station in south Kashmir's Pulwama district.



The rail project is being commissioned in two phases. In the first phase, the rail link between south Kashmir's Anantnag district and north Kashmir's Baramulla district will be completed while in the second phase, railway operations between the valley and the rest of the country will begin.
