Simla Hydroelectric Scheme Construction Monorail

A hydroelectic scheme was built by 'Marsland, Price & Company' on the Nauti Khud Stream, 14 miles(22km) from Simla to provide electricity to Simla. It was constructed between 1908 and 1912 [1].

A Ewing type monorail system must have been used during the construction. In the 6 Jul 1912 edition of 'Indian Engineering' the company advertised a number of Ewing monorail trucks for sale among the surplus material from the project [1]
