The following is a summary of history of the lines of the Indian Railway as it was formerly
constituted (i.e. between 1955 and the reorganisations of 2002-3). Opening and closure dates are for
regular traffic, dates in brackets are for goods traffic. The condition of the lines, including spelling of
place names, is, as far as possible, as at Independence (15th August 1947). Letters

in brackets after a place
name indicate a physical junction to another system. Lines are organised geographically, according to
their branching from the main line. A code precedes the name of the line.

This is because there is very less friction between the wheels of the locomotive and the train.
This is the fundamental principle based on which railways were developed. Steel wheels on steel rails experience far lesser friction than say, rubber wheels on a road (like trucks and cars). In fact the friction reduces by almost 85-95%, which makes it extremely easy to pull or push very heavy loads on rail tracks.
As an example, using very simple approximations and numbers, one can illustrate how easy it is to move things on rails.

straight, level tracks, the amount of force required to push a 1 ton (1000kg) wagon, is the same as the amount required to lift about 2.5kg. So, pushing a WAP4 loco, weighing about 110 tons only requires the same effort as required to lift a 250kg weight. This is something that 4 or 5 reasonably strong people can manage easily. The loco will move very, very slowly, but it is possible to just push it.
Obviously this is a simplified calculation, and the numbers change based on many parameters, but the point is to illustrate that it is very easy to move coaches and wagons on railway tracks.

What does 'NP' means which is marked on some IR wagons?
These are wagons that do not participate in wagon pooling. Some wagons may be marked as Non-Pooled Wagons (usually stencilled 'N.P.' on the wagons) - these are usually some special-purpose high-capacity wagons used by various railways that generally earmarked for some particular operations on that railway or on particular routes. They do travel to other zones, but are not scheduled for further trips by the other railways. When they are loaded to adjoining railways, they are usually marked to be sent back to a station on the route they took, or back to their home railway by any route.
