Notes concerning the above two records:-"

  • 1. The author uses the spelling Chandrapur – this is not the spelling used in the Imperial Gazetteer which uses Chandpur. This is the spelling that Fibis have adopted.
  • 2. The author cites the move of the worshop in 1935 to Dibrugarh. The implication of this that the workhops was relocated or merged with the workshop of the Dibru-Sadiya Railway(DSR). Other records indicate that the working of the DSR only took place in 1942 for the duration of the war
