Bangaon is a Kolkata Suburban Railway Junction Station on the Sealdah-Bangaon line and Ranaghat-Bangaon line. It is located in North 24 Parganas district in the Indian state of West Bengal. It serves Bangaon and the surrounding areas.
In 1882–84 the Bengal Central Railway Company constructed two lines: one from Dum Dum to Khulna, now in Bangladesh, via Bangaon and the other linking Ranaghat and Bangaon.
The Bengal Central Railway was formed in 1881 to construct and operate a line to Khulna. It was merged with Eastern Bengal Railway in 1903.
Dum Dum-Barasat-Ashok Nagar-Bangaon sector was electrified in 1963–64.
Bangaon is the last station on the line, but the line goes up to the India-Bangladesh border and beyond.
Petrapole, the Indian side of the international border, with a land customs station, handles more than half of the 4 billion dollar trade between India and Bangladesh. With the remote possibility of improvements in the narrow roads leading to the border, because of land acquisition problems, the focus is now on improving the rail transportation system.
