The Southern Railway, today headquartered at Chennai, Tamil Nadu, is the earliest of the seventeen zones of the Indian railway that is vital in connecting the different regions of this vast country. Originally, it dates from British rule in India when the Great Southern India Railway Co. was established with its headquarters in Britain, running an impressive 1,121 miles of track.

Unique in its revenue being derived from passengers and not freight, today more than five million passengers travel on what used to be the South Indian Railway network every year.

This famous account was originally published by South Indian Railway Co. Ltd in 1900. Culturally important, it is the classic guide to visiting the south of India and travelling on this illustrious railway. Providing a detailed description of the railway itself, it also divulges useful information for travellers, outlines the tourist routes and itineraries and contains fascinating insights in to the country itself, from general history and religions to sport and architecture.
