Khamgaon Branch Railway, also described as the Khamgaon State Railway and in earlier records as the Khangaum Railway

The Khamgaon Branch Railway was a short Indian State broad gauge(BG) branch railway connecting Khamgaon to the Great Indian Peninsula Railway (GIPR) ‘Nagpur Branch’ at Jalam [1].

The line with a length of 7½ miles(12km) opened in Mar 1870 and worked by Great Indian Peninsula Railway as the ‘GIPR Khamgaon Branch’ [2].

The 1870-71 ‘Annual Report on Railways in India’ [3] gives the spelling as the “Khangaum Railway”
