Cawnpore, Field Gun Factory Railway

The 'Field Gun Factory', established by the 'Ordnance Department' of the Army at Cawnpore had been in use for some time before the Second World War (date unknown). The record shows that there was a broad gauge(BG) locomotive dated 1936 in use at this factory. It can only be ussumed that the factory was connected to the East Indian Railway (EIR) network at Cawnpore [1].
