Cawnpore Sugar Works   36 B3

A firm very closely connected with many of the industrial enterprises in Cawnpore is that of Begg Sutherland & Co, which is 
the name at present given to the well-known Calcutta house of Begg Dunlop and Co. It was started as Begg Christie & Co in 
1856, the present name adopted in 1875. In addition to their business as seed and produce merchants...they are interested in 
many other undertakings.

The firm are managing agents for the Cawnpore Sugar Works Ltd. The refinery in Cawnpore was opened in 1894 and the 
manufacture of fine sugar from gur purchased mainly in the eastern districts and Bihar. The object aimed at is pure cane 
sugar made mechanically and free of bone and charcoal, objectionable to orthodox Hindus. The same firm are also managing 
agents for the sugar factory opened in 1906 at Marhaura in Saran and for the Champron Sugar Co Ltd, a concern started in 1905
and worked on the continental central factory system. Most of the sugar is sold in Cawnpore, as also is that from the Japaha
factory belonging to the Bhikanpur indigo concern in Tirhut, for which Begg, Sutherland are the selling agents.

Begg, Sutherland are also managing agents for Indian Electric Supply & Traction Co Ltd, a London concern, claiming to be the 
first public supply company outside the presidency towns. As well as supplying power for lights and fans to public 
institutions, private houses and factories, the company owns a tramway, of which the preliminary length of 3 1/2 miles from 
the EIR station to Sirsaya Ghat was opened in 1907. The electricity is becoming popular in Cawnpore, there are already three 
electric driven flour mills in the city.

Begg, Sutherland also act as selling agents on behalf of the forestry department for resin made in the Naini Tal forest 
division and for light railway construction on behalf of OK. They have recently been place in charge of the Government 
experimental factory and refinery, now under construction for expressing oil from cotton seed.i

Saraya Sugar Mills, Sadar Nagar, near Gorakphur  37 H3

Mill appeared to be working close to full capacity in mid-January. Three locos are in steam daily - one MG for shunting 
loaded cane wagons over the weighbridge and into the mill (VF 1033 on date of visit) , with two NG locos working the line 
from the cane field into the mill. The usual loco for work to the loading point at Hetimpur (c.20 kms)  is K 5175, which 
still carries its NWR insignia. 

On 12/1/198X, K 5175 broke the crankshaft to its middle driving wheel, about 5 kms out from the mill. After having its left 
hand side motion dismantled, the loco limped back to the mil at about 1600 and K 3971 had to be rapidly steamed to serve as 
mill pilot. On the MG, TWEED was the reserve loco and D 1719 was dumped.

At the height of activity, two trains a day were operating to Hetimpur, the first departing at 0500 and returning between 
1200 and 1300, the second departing the mill at 1330 and arriving back at around 2000. xi
