Holkar and Sindia-Neemuch State Railway

The Holkar & Sindia-Neemuch State Railways was a joint operating name for the Holkar State Railway and the Sindia-Neemuch State Railway from about 1874. The two lines were built as metre gauge(MG) railways.

These lines were incorporated to form the Rajputana-Malwa Railway(RMSR) in 1882 -

In 1900 the RMSR merged into the Bombay, Baroda and Central India Railway(BB&CIR)


An on-line search of the India Office Records (IOR) records held at the British Library relating to this railway [1] gives the following:-

  • R/V/24/3590; "Public Works Department: Railways" which includes "Report on the progress and administration of the Holkar and Sindia-Neemuch State Railways, 1878/79"
