RMSR Ajmer Workshop

The Rajputana State Railway(RSR) established the workshops at Ajmer, becoming the Rajputana-Malwa State Railway(RMSR) in 1881-82.

The workshops were early on charged with a wide variety of repair and overhauling jobs, including permanent-way work. In 1895, the workshops achieved the distinction of building the first indigenous locomotive from India, an 'F' class 0-6-0 MG locomotive (#F-734) [1].

The workshops at Ajmer opened in 1879 and employed 8,000 people by 1911 [2].

One notable feature of this workshop is the existence of a network of about 5km of 18"-gauge tram lines for transport of material among the various [1].
