Jammu Tawi Railway Station (JAT)
जम्मू तवी रेलवे स्टेशन

Jammu Tawi Railway Station (station code: JAT) is a railway station in Jammu city in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.

There existed an old station in the city, on the Jammu-Sialkot Line, which had train services to Sialkot Junction, now in Pakistan, 43 km (27 mi) away. The station also linked with Wazirabad and Narowal stations, both of which are in Pakistan today. The old Jammu station was built in around 1897 but was abandoned after the Partition of India as the railway link to Sialkot was broken. Jammu had no rail services until 1971, when the Indian Railways laid the Pathankot - Jammu Tawi Broad Gauge line. The new Jammu Tawi station was opened in 1975. In 2000, much of the old railway station was demolished to make way for an art centre.
