A map showing the layout of Chakki Bank and Pathankot Jn. It clearly explains why many Jammu Tawi bound trains skip Pathankot Jn and halt at Chakki Bank instead to avoid a reversal at Pathankot Jn. (Ankit Bharaj)

Thanks for sharing. That answers a few questions I had about the place since 2006, when I travelled to Jammu on my way to Vaishnodevi.

I used to wonder where trains from ASR to JAT could bypass Pathankot and avoid a reversal. Your layout has clarified that - reversal is required at either Bharoli or Pathankot.
