Narrow Gauge Routes

Narrow gauge in the Indian context means any gauge narrower than 1m. The two such gauges that survive now are the 2' (610mm) and 2'6" (762mm) gauges.

This list summarizes the status as of 2005. An updated list from 2007 is also available.

See also the FAQ section on gauges in India and the Rinbad article on Indian narrow gauge. There is also a list of MG routes and a list of NG routes of 1948.
