Transcript of "Meter gauge, broad gauge and narrow gauge"

  1. 1. Meter Gauge• Theres not many opertional metre gauge lines, most are in various states of gauge conversion. Still operating are: - Udaipur-Ahmedabad Pathankot-Jogindernagar (actually, I think this is narow gauge) Jaipur-Bikaner (via Ringas) Marwar-Mavli Mathura-Kasganj-Lalkual/Bareilly-Pilibhit-Gonda Murkong Selek-Rangiya Lumding-Silchar/Agartala Nagpur-Chindwara-Balaghat-Jabalpur
  2. 2. Broad Gauge• These triple gauges exhibit the hierarchical impor-tance of the rail routes. The double track broad gauge today linking the metropolitan cities and major ports comes on the top followed by single track broad gauge branch line on peripheral trunk routes, meter gauge double track lines, meter gauge single track routes and narrow gauge rail lines.
  3. 3. Narrow Gauge• Narrow gauge rail lines were laid down in the hilly, barren and thinly populated areas of less eco-nomic importance. Pathankot-Manali-Kalka- Shimla, Siliguri- Darjeeling.Mettupalayam- Ootacamund includes some important rail links under the system.
  4. 4. Difference between Meter Gauge and Broad GaugeMeter Gauge Broad Gauge• Meter gauge refers • Broad gauge to railways with a railways use a rail track gauge (distance gauge(distance between the rails) between the rails) of 1,000 mm of 1,435 mm.
  5. 5. Difference between MetreGauge, Broad Gauge and Narrow Gauge• Broad gauge is 1.44 metres in width.• Metre gauge is1 metre with, the name itself denotes.• Narrow gauge is used in moutain or hill trains which is less than a metre and its width is0.79 metres.
