PROGRESS REPORT OF THE l a j p n t a n H gtn It $ a i I w a g. (OPEN LINE.) FOR THE YEAR187 4--7 B I. The Rajputana State Railway is divided into two districts. The one, known as the Agra District, comprises the line which runs from Agra through Bhurtpore, Jeypore and Ajmere to Nasirabad. The other, known as the Delhi District, runs from Delhi through Rewari and Ulwar to Bandikui, where it forms a junction with the Agra District at a point 94J miles from Agra. The two Districts have been constructed under different Engineers-in-Chief and under different systems. The construction of the Agra District was let to contractors, Messrs. Glover & Co., who undertook to make the railway, being supplied with all English Stores by Government, while the Delhi District was constructed under Departmental management. No reference is made in this report to the cost or details of construction of the two districts, as these matters still fall within the province of the Engineer-in-Chief. On 1st April 1874, the Agra District was open from Agra to Bhurtpore, 33 miles, and the Delhi District from Delhi to Rewari, 51 miles. A branch 7 miles in length was also open from the Delhi District to the Farukhnagar Salt.
