How to interpret this infobox

Later renamed the Dholpur State Railway, the Dholpur-Bari Light Railway (DBLR) was a 2ft 6in/762mm narrow gauge(NG) line owned and managed by the Princely Dholpur State Durbar. The line ran from its junction at Dholpur on the Great Indian Peninsula(GIPR) mainline from Jhansi to Agra. [1]

The Mohari-Karauli Railway section was opened 1916-17 as part of DBLR; it was later transferred to as part of Gwalior Light Railways network.

In 1950, the DBLR was nationalised and in 1951 merged with others to form Central Railway, a zone of Indian Railways.
