B.H = Bull Head (Bull Head RAIL Section)
Bullhead rail was the standard for the British railway system from the mid-19th until the mid-20th century.
Bullhead rail evolved from double-headed rail but, because it did not have a symmetrical profile, it was never possible to flip it over and use the foot as the head. Therefore, because the rail no longer had the originally-perceived benefit of reusability, it was a very expensive method of laying track. Heavy cast iron chairs were needed to support the rail, which was secured in the chairs by wooden (later steel) wedges or "keys" which required regular attention.
Bullhead rail has now been almost completely replaced by flat-bottom rail on Indian Railways.

Having worked many moons for the California Rail Transportation Department, I was attracted to your minimalist Dadpur Station. I worked on both rail and station construction and maintenance in Southern California. We added many new stations which were basically shelters with benches and parking for autos.
Thanks for sharing,
