Delhi to Trivandrum by Metre Gauge in 1970

This is probably the last instalment of MG routes from Delhi to the major cities in South India. Trivandrum came on BG in late 1975, so this time we imagine a journey in 1970. One could also imagine a link express from Quilon to Ernakulam.

This comes to 3249 km, which is just over 2000 miles. Probably it would take a week.

In 1970, TVC was indeed the southern-most station in India as its latitude was less than that of Tiruchendur, which remained on MG until 2000 or later.
