Approval was given in 1854-55 for the Furruckabad Tramroad to ‘lay down a tramway on the river sands’ [1] on the banks of the Ganges at Furruckabad.

Furruckabad (later becoming Farrukhabad) is on the banks of the River Ganges.

Farrukhabad is the spelling given in the “Imperial Gazetteer of India,1909” [2]

This clearly would have been a dry season temporary track but no further information has been found.
