With the completion of the Kazipet-Balharshah link in 1929, Chennai was directly linked to Delhi.[1]

The Gondia-Nagbhir-Nagpur line was opened for traffic in 1908. The Nagbhir-Rajoli line was opened in 1913 and extended up to Chanda Fort.[2] Work for conversion to broad gauge of the 240 km (149 mi) narrow gauge Gondia-Chanda Fort line started in December 1992. The fourth phase covering Nagbhir-Chanda Fort section was opened on 13 January 1999 and the Chanda Fort-Balharshah section was opened from 2 July 1999.[3]
