You're asking on the wrong forum, try irfca's forum.

IRFCA have a news section with maybe 40 items per day, I went through about 4 months of it to try to get to grips with gauge conversion work, but that was 18 months ago and things have changed a lot since then.

There's 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

There's also a few other lines in Rajasthan, mostly north of Jaipur and towards Bikaner and (Sri)Ganganagar, also a line running north from Degana.

A couple of small lines in Gujarat.
A few lines in eastern Tamil Nadu.
A couple of lines in Northern Bihar.
There's a line going west from Gwalior, about 100kms I think.

That's all I can think of for now, most of the rest are being converted to broad gauge.

Then there's all the narrow gauge lines.
.

I couldn't give you an accurate list, and I can't think of anyone else who could, certainly not a single person.

Maybe all the IRFCA members could compile a list between them, but I wish you good luck, Iíve had problems getting anything useful in the past.

Samit Roychoudhury from IRFCA would be the first person I'd think of, he done a very good Indian Rail map that included all lines that were being converted, and all lines where conversions were planned, but that rail map is a few years old now, and I don't think Samit has been keeping up to date with recent developments.

As for me, I give up on the IRFCA newsfeeds as I didn't have the time to keep checking them, and the dates I already had for gauge completion work had to be constantly changed as work got more and more delayed.

I may be able to compile a list of lines that have been closed for gauge conversion, but you'd then have to google to find news items to get likely completion dates.

Why do you need the info?
(send me a private message if you don't want to give the reason on an open forum).

Steven: Couple of corrections.

The Nagpur-chindwara-Nanpur-Jabalpur line is not Metre Guage but Narrow Gauge running on 2' 6" tracks.

In addition an interesting MG route exisitn gucrrently is Ratlam-Mhow-Indore-Akola. This passes through Dhul Ghat which is on the outskirts of the Melghat sanctuary

Only Akola-Khandwa-Ratlam is still metre gauge, and that too will be converted soon, I'm not sure if they've already closed Akola-Khandwa, maybe not.

I'll try and do some checks on the other section maybe next Tuesday or Wednesday, I've just started a new job and they keep changing my rest days, it's driving me nuts.

Are all of these lines still active nick?

I can confirm that Pachora-Jamner, Nagpur-Nainpur-Jabalpur on NG and Ratlam-Mhow-Akola sections on MG are still active.

But arent the Pandharpur-Miraj and Murtujapur-Yavatmal sections closed down?

Bissa,

You are Welcome !

Manamadurai to Virudhunagar

This is not done yet and no trains on this circuit

Villipuram to Mayiladuthurai (Via Chidambaram)

This is not done yet and no trains on this circuit. Partial BG conversion work happening in Mayiladudurai - Cuddalore Port JN & Cuddalore - Villupuram JN circuit too [ This is a bit old info & I uncovered this info When I tried to do Tiruthuraipoondi to Chennai by train But at that time [ 1 1/2 years back] ,there was 2 passenger trains running from Karaikudi JN until Mayiladudurai Via Aranthangi-Pattukottai- Athirampatnam-Muthupettai-Tiruthuraipoondi-Tiruvarur and From Mayiladudurai , we Travelled by bus until Chennai !

Tiruthuraipoondi - Agasthiampalli

This Train-bus was stopped 2 1/2 years back [ But it's still listed in Railway timetables with timings as it's one of the 2 Rail-bus available in entire India as such]. This Train-bus [ Only Single Carriage [Bigger than Bus] with a conductor and Driver ?! ] which Ran from Tiruthuraipoondi to Agasthiampalli Via Vedaranyam for quite some time in the initial years and it's almost like town bus and as the Railway line passes through remote villages , at any place people will just show their hands and stop and board and get down as per their wish at that time.People tried out just for fun at that time but What I heard from few of them [ I mean My relatives who did that journey] is that they are not able to withstand the 2 1/2 hours + journey for mere 40 kms with numerous stops in between & Travelling time was Twice when compared to bus journey BUT the advantage is Train Fare is 1/3 rd of Bus journey !

1 1/2 years back I enquired in Tiruthuraipoondi Jn , and got the info, this service is stopped and this train bus was locked inside "Covered Garage" [Which was specially erected for this when it was inaugarated]


Regards
Velu
