Ever Wondered What’s The Difference Between A Junction, Terminus & Central?

Published on 26 April, 2018 at 3:10 pm By

Traveling in a train is a beautiful experience, and this experience starts from a mayhem called station.

The chaos at railway stations is often infuriating, and sometimes, it sends the perfect travel vibes, making us believe that we are leaving our regular world for something new and unexplored.

Also, while roaming ignorantly at the stations, you must have noticed different railway boards that describe the name of the station. For example: Mumbai Central and Varanasi Junction.

Usually, the name of the station is accompanied by three words i.e junction, terminal and central, and all of them have a significance.

Here is what they mean:

 

1. Terminus/Terminal

A Terminal board denotes that the trains can enter and leave the (particular) station in one direction only.

2. Central

A Central is the busiest and most important station of a city, which has multiple stations. Most often, the oldest station is named as Central. There are primarily five Central stations in India; Kanpur Central (CNB), Mangalore Central (MAQ), Mumbai Central (BCT), Trivandrum Central (TVC), Chennai Central (MAS).

 

3. Junction

If there are at least three different routes connected to a particular station, then, it is called a Junction. It simply means that a train should have at least 2 different routes to leave the station.
