"One place you should not miss"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
This is one of the place in India that can tell you about the history of railways in true form and size. It has so many real objects used anywhere and everywhere in railways that you get a real and true picture how it all started and the journey it has gone through. The best I liked, was Prince of Wales Saloon and the toy train. If you love traveling in rail, this is one place you should not miss.

"The Choo Choo Trains"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Apr 10, 2014
Built in 1957, this museum is at one end of Chanakyapuri, the diplomatic enclave of Delhi. This museum is a fascinating showcase of the history of the Indian Railways. From the steam locomotives to the station benches, from the Maharajas saloons to the double decker carriages for the common masses; from cutlery to railway equipment, this museum has it all. A fascinating walk down the history of the Indian Railways from the first day it chugged out of Mumbai to the becoming the 4th largest railway network in the World! You can find all that here.
