The Mathura-Hathras Provincial Railway was a metre gauge(MG) 29 mile(47km) line opened in 1875. It was financed by the Provincial State and local shareholders.

The railway was worked by the Bombay, Baroda and Central India Railway(BB&CIR).

The line connected Mathura with Hathras, where there was a separate station serving the broad gauge(BG) East Indian Railway(EIR). [1] [2]

Curiously this railway is not listed in the 1918 Administration Report on Railways [3].
Wikipedia reports that this line existed and was converted to broad gauge(BG) in 1952.
