I've always had a soft corner for trains.Since I'm staying in a country outside India where railway connectivity is not available, I really miss traveling by trains.
So when I was in Delhi for a weekend and had some extra time to explore, I decided to visit the National Rail Museum in Chanakyapuri.
I booked a cab from Paharganj and reached the museum carrying my backpack and camera.Once I collected my tickets and went inside, I instantly fell in love with this place.I could see the evolution of Indian Railways in front of my eyes.There are several iconic models kept for exhibition which includes:
Kalka Shimla rail bus
patiala State Monorail Railways
Saloon of Prince of Wales
Saloon of Maharaja of Indore
Saloon of Maharaja of Mysore
Steam locomotive A-885 HASANG
Matheran Rail Car no. 8899
Mg Diesel SR 203
Electric Locomotive YCG -E1/21900
