The railway division of Guwahati falls under the administration of the North East Frontier Railway. The railway services were first started in the state of Assam in the year 1881. This inception took place due to the reason that the Assam Railway and Trading Company started off with the construction of a gauge line between the cities of Dibrugargh to Makum Collieries in Margherita for business purposes. Due to the event of the partition of India, the railway services of Assam had to be separated and formed as a completely separate entity.
