India has one of the world's largest rail networks with a route length of over 63,000km (39,000 miles) and tracks that cover over 100,000km (60,000 miles). There are about 7,150 stations, 12,600 passenger trains and 1,350 goods trains. The entire network employs 1.6 million people while 13 million passengers travel by train each day. Its one of Britan's best legacy's that was left to India and without it, India would have simply ground to a halt years ago.
This museum, located in southern New Delhi, was opened in 1977 and exhibits over 100 steam, diesel and electric locomotives, cranes, coaches and trucks. Exhibits on display include the world's oldest functioning steam loco, The Fairy Queen, dating from 1855, a Mysore Maharaja's saloon, trains and carriages from the Ooty and Darjeeling mountain railways and an indoor exhibits centre featuring model trains, pictures, photo's and general rail memorabilia. The museum is a must for all train buffs!
