Hansara Tea Tramway System

'Hansara Tea Tramway System' in the Tinsukia District of Assam at Hansara is the name we have selected that is identified from the maps of the area [1] which provides the following information:-

The tramway system, with a length of about 8 miles(13km), of unknown gauge, ran from the Dibru-Sadiya Railway station at Hansara and had two branches:-

  • Branch 1
    • 'Raidang Tea Garden', owner 'Unknown'
  • Branch 2
    • 'Samdang Tea Garden', owner 'Unknown'
    • 'Mesai Tea Garden', owner 'Unknown'

The owner(s) of these three tea gardens we have described as 'Unknown 3 in the Table '

Note: Raidang and Samdang are still in existence (2019) while Mesai has been taken over by one or the other.
