Railway gauging

The long whistle of the passing train brings back the memories of the family vacations. The railways were developed in the early 19th century, introducing the concept of railway gauging and the 1st standard railway gauge came into being around the year 1938. This was quickly followed by broad gauge, medium gauge and narrow gauge lines. The broad gauge is characterized by spacing of 2140mm, medium gauge by 1067mm – 1767mm and narrow gauge is characterized by 610mm -1067mm.

Later for user flexibility, mixed gauge and variable gauge lines were developed. India and Australia have been attempting the creation of a uniform gauge; however, this process railway gauging, of conversion of the existing rail gauge lines to the standard gauge lines is expensive and time consuming.
