How to interpret this infobox

The Gondal State Railway(GSR) was a metre gauge(MG) railway owned by the Princely Gondal State. The line opened in 1881 and originally worked by the Bhavnagar-Gondal-Junagad-Porbandar Railway(BGJPR).

From 1911, the line formed the nucleus of a new system, working jointly with the Porbandar State Railway(PSR) thus forming the Gondal-Porbandar Railway.

In 1919, GSR took over the sole working of the PSR.

In 1948, GSR became a part of Saurashtra Railway.
