Khundwah and Indore Railway Gauge Objection
An objection was lodged in 1872 from George Berkley, Chief Engineer of the ‘Great Indian Peninsula Railway’(GIPR) , to the construction of this line to the metre gauge(MG). The line was described as the ‘Khundwah and Indore Railway’. The objection was that this railway should be constructed as a broad gauge (BG) line to provide an unbroken link between the GIPR and the NWR - both being BG systems .
The line when completed was named the 'Holkar State Railway' - see seperate page for further information
