Rajasthan is the very essence of India. It’s impregnable forts and magnificent palaces, rise up imperiously from the desert landscape like fairy-tale mirages of a bygone era. And as enchanting as that maybe , there is more to Rajasthan than its seemingly timeless wonders. For thru it runs one of the last few meter gauge railway lines left in India. Frozen in time till gauge conversion relegates it to the history books forever. The majority of it’s railway network in the 1990s was meter gauge, but most of these lines have since been converted to the 5 ft 6 inch Broad Gauge. The line between Jaipur and Churu is one of the last surviving meter gauge routes left in this region.
