Futwah-Islampur Light Railway

The Futwah-Islampur Light Railway was a 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) narrow gauge railway in the Indian state of Bihar. Constructed in 1922, it was operated by the Martin's Light Railways company until taken over by the Indian Railways and closed in 1987. The line operated three 0-6-2T locomotives constructed by Manning Wardle of Leeds. The railway ran for about 40 kilometres between its namesake towns, paralleling the local road most of the way.[1][2]
