The Bhavnagar-Gondal-Junagadh-Porbandar Railway (BGJPR) was a system comprising several short Metre Gauge(MG) lines on the Kathiawar peninsula (in western Gujarat). Owned by the four Indian States that gave the system its name. This administrative coalition was dissolved in 1911 with the constituents going their independent ways.

These railways were to come together again, with others (eg the Morvi Railway), in 1948 to form the Saurashtra Railway.
