For going to Nepal by inland transport, U r to alight at Raxaul the border of Bihar & Nepal. From there by road to KTM about 125 KMs ( hill road)
There is probably a Rly stn at Birgunj the Nepal side after Raxaul; but public r not into that.

The Nepal Railways Corporation Ltd. (NRC) is owned by the government of Nepal. It maintains and operates two railway lines --- a 6 km broad gauge line from Raxaul in India to Sirsiya in Nepal. It is an Inland Container Depot or Dry Port, near Birganj in Nepal and another is a 53 km, narrow gauge line from Jainagar in India to Bijalpura in Nepal.
The Jainagar-Bijalpur line is composed of two sections. (1) 32 km between Jainagar (Bihar, India) and Janakpur (Nepal) and (2) 21 km from Janakpur to Bijalpura (Nepal). The Janakpur line is used largely for passengers and the Sirsiya (Birganj) line only for cargo freight.
These railway lines at the Indo Nepal border. Apart from these there is NO RAILWAY in Nepal.
