Currently the haulage trolley functions partially. There are total 5 spans or points of the haulage way from Shanan, the base point near Joginder Nagar, to Barot. Starting from base the first point is “18 number” or Adit Junction which is nearly 1.5 KM from base. Currently the trolley runs twice a day everyday from base to 18 number. It runs once a week from the base to third point Winch Camp which is nearly 4 KM from the base. Barot is two point ahead (nearly 9 KM from the base) and trolley runs rarely and in special cases and occasion.
