Udaipur-Chitor Railway also known as Udaipur-Chitorgarh Railway and the Oodeypore-Chitor Railway

The railway was a Metre Gauge(MG) line, sponsored by the Princely Mewar State Durbar, to link Udaipur to Chitor and worked by the Bombay, Baroda and Central India Railway(BB&CIR) up to 31 December 1897. With effect from 1st January 1908 the maintenance and working was taken over by the Mewar Durbar. [1]

Chitor was the connection to the Rajputana-Malwa Railway(RMR), which, in 1900, merged into the BB&CIR

During the Second World War, c.1943 the line became known as the Mewar State Railway.
