Industry and cultureedit

Locomotive workshopedit

The Jamalpur Locomotive Workshop was the first full-fledged railway workshop facility in India, founded on 8 Feb 1862 by the East Indian Railway Company The Jamalpur site was chosen for its proximity both to the Sahibganj loop, which was the main trunk route at the time, and to the communities of gunsmiths and other mechanical craftsmen in Bihar

The workshop was initially for repairing locomotives, and assembling new ones from salvaged parts By the early 20th century, however, it had progressed to producing its own locomotives It produced the first one, CA 764 "Lady Curzon", in 1899 In 1893, it became the site of the first railway foundry in India It also had a workshop for repairing and building boilers Today it has a foundry, metallurgical lab facilities, and machine tool facilities Its rolling mill and nut and bolt shop ceased operation in 1984
