The Jullundur-Nakodar Chord Railway, opened after 1914. It was constructed, operated and managed by the Southern Punjab Railway Company Limited as part of Jullundur-Doab Railway [1] [2]; and was part of the North Western Railway network. The line of 19 miles(31km) linked Jullundur to Nakodar


Refer to FIBIS Fact File #4: “Research sources for Indian Railways, 1845-1947” - available from the Fibis shop. This Fact File contains invaluable advice on 'Researching ancestors in the UK records of Indian Railways' with particular reference to the India Office Records (IOR) held at the British Library

An on-line search of the IOR records relating to this railway [3] gives the following: -

  • L/F/8/17/1281 “Southern Punjab Railway Company Limited, Contract as to construction of the Jullundur-Nakodar Chord Railway as part of the Jullundur-Doab Railway; 1913”
