This is going to be a long post - I'll try to spread it over 2-3 posts.
State-wise list of abandoned/non-functional lines (Going South to North - Some states really do not have any notable abandoned lines, in those cases, I've highlighted some small bypass lines that were abandoned).
Kerala -
Meter gauge - Cochin State Forest Tramway - Thrissur-Parambikulam (dismantled)
gauge and Mono-rail - Kundale valley railway (near Munnar, Kerala) - Washed away in floods.
Tamilnadu -
2'6" narrow gauge - Morappur-Dharmapuri - Dismantled. Line originally extended to Hosur. Dharmapuri-Hosur is now a BG line.

2'0" Narrow gauge - Tadasa-Hebbe tramway - Dismantled
Ex-Andhra Pradesh (including Telangana) - No real major abandoned railway in both states, so combining them
Broad gauge - Tsunduru-Vejandla chord line (dismantled)
Meter gauge - Macherla - Nagarjuna sagar dam construction line (dismantled)
unknown gauge - Godavari river tramway - Operated on the East bank of the Godavari river, near Bhadrachalam. Dismantled in the 1800's.
