Mysore-Nanjangud Railway was a short metre gauge(MG) line that extended the Mysore State Railway(MSR) mainline from Mysore to Nanjangud. The railway was owned by the Princely Mysore State Durbar and worked by the MSR [1].

The MSR became the Madras and Southern Mahratta Railway(M&SMR) in 1907, they worked the line until 1919.

In 1919, the Mysore State successfully sought the reversion of the ‘Mysore -Bangalore Section’ and two branch lines, the ‘Birur-Shimoga Railway’ and the ‘Mysore-Nanjangud Railway’ became the ‘Mysore State Railway’(MSR) [2]
