Singrauli lies in the coal belt that spans most of central and east-central India and is becoming famous as home to a number of coal-fired power plants, aimed at generating thousands of Megawatts of electricity. It has also a lot of other specialties when looked from a geographical point of view. It is the easternmost town of Madhya Pradesh and the westernmost station of East Central Railway, the zonal interchange point between East Central Railway and West Central Railway happens immediately west after Singrauli towards Katni. In this way, it is the only station in Madhya Pradesh to be under ECR! Even though it is under ECR, both trains started from here are operated by WCR. The Katni-Garhwa Road line was until recently not given much importance, but now with all the industrial activity is being doubled and electrified, and the development of SGRL as a terminus must be part of this. There could be many more trains starting on this route soon, which until now had only five expresses and some passenger trains passing through. Other important trains that pass through Singrauli are Shaktpunj Express, Triveni Express and Saare Jahan Se Achcha Express.
