Central Railways

A zone of Indian Railways (IR), Central Railway (CR) was formed on 5 November 1951 by grouping several government-owned railways, including the ‘Great Indian Peninsula Railway’, the ‘Scindia State Railway’ of the former princely state of Gwalior, ‘Nizam's State Railway’, ‘Wardha Coal State Railway’ and the ‘Dholpur State Railway’.

In 1966, parts of CR were combined with portions of Southern Railway to form the ninth zone of IR, South Central Railway.
