Assam-Bengal Railway Company.

Bangladesh Railway started its journey in 1862. It opened 53.11 kilometers of 5 ft 6 in (1,676 mm) (broad gauge) line for traffic on 15 November 1862 between Darsana and Jagiti.

The next 14.98 kilometers 1,000 mm (3 ft 3+38 in) (meter gauge) line was opened for traffic on 4 January 1885.

In 1891, the construction of then Assam-Bengal Railway was taken up by the British Government assistance but that was later on taken over by the Assam-Bengal Railway Company.

On 1 July 1895, two sections of meter gauge lines were opened between Chittagong and Comilla, a length of 149.89 kilometers and between Laksam and Cahndpur, a length of 50.89 kilometers. Railway Companies formed in England took up the construction and operation of these sections in middle and late 19th century.
