Describe the physical and economic factors that influenced the distribution patterns of the Indian Railways network.








The physical and economic factors that influenced the distribution pattern of Indian Railways:
  • Northern Plains were the most favourable because of its level land, and high population density.
  • In the peninsular region, railway tracks were made on low hills or through gaps and tunnels because it was a hilly region.
  • Northern mountains are unfavourable for railways because of the altitude, low population density and less economic activities.
  • The sandy plains of Rajasthan, Gujarat swamps and forested tracks of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Jharkhand are unfavourable for the construction of railways.
  • Konkan railway has made it convenient for the movement of goods and passengers in the most important economic region of India.
