The Mayurbhanj State Railway was started by the erstwhile ruler of Mayurbhanj State Maharja Shri Sriram Chandra Bhanj Deo. The first section of 52 km from Rupsa Junction[5] to Baripada was opened for traffic on 20 January 1905. Rupsa was the junction with the Bengal Nagpur Railway’s 1,676 mm (5 ft 6 in) line. An agreement was signed on 2 December 1918, between the Mayurbhanj State and Mayurbhanj Railway Company, for extending the line to Talband, 61.5 km away. This section was opened on 15 July 1920. From that date, the management of the entire Rupsa-Talband section was handed over to Mayurbhanj Railway Company, formed in 1920 to take over this line.[6]
