The Bengal Provincial Railway opened in 1895 from Tarakeswar on the East Indian Railway to Magra, which was on the East Indian Railway broad gauge. Built by local interests, the line was 32 miles (51 km) long, until extended a further 2 miles (3.2 km) to Tribeni in 1904. The railway mostly used small 2-4-0T locomotives. There also was a branch line from Dashghora to Jamalpur.
Increasing losses post World War 2 led to its closure in 1956.
