Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Cutch State Railway also spelled as Kutch State Railway was an isolated Indian 2 ft 6 in gauge railway which ran north from the port of Tuna towards Anjar in the Kutch District on the Gulf of Kutch. The railway was financed by the Maharao Khengarji Bawa of Cutch, and the initial section to Anjar was opened in 1905. At the time Cutch was a princely state within British India. An extension from Anjar to the state capital of Bhuj was opened in 1908, giving a total length of 36.25 miles. Further lines were later added east of Anjar. In 1940 the railway carried 300,000 passengers, while the main freight traffic was cotton, grain and sugar. The railway used four small 4-4-0 type locomotives, later supplemented by three 25 ton 4-6-0 locomotives.show more
