      It is a very interesting museum in Delhi focusing on the rail heritage of India. When we were living in Delhi we used to go to this museum once in a while. Spread over 11 acres of area, the museum has vast open area and an indoor gallery. Children simply freak out at this place.

      The open area houses some of the finest specimens of

      rail engines and coaches from the past and the present .There are over 100 exhibits on display here ranging from steam, diesel and electrical locomotives to the exquisitely decorated ornate royal coaches with all the attractive dining tables and chairs neatly fitted in. The most attractive exhibit is the Fairy Queen of 1855 vintage supposed to be the oldest working steam engine in the ...

      • world. They also have the famous Patiala Mono Rail System where one can take a ride on Sundays.

        The indoor gallery displays a variety of exhibits, which include engine models, documents, photographs, signaling and tele-communication equipment pre and post independence developments in railways, various construction techniques etc.

        There is a souvenir shop which sells a wide range of souvenirs like models of rail engines

        and coaches, T- Shirts, key chains, greeting cards, books, scarves, hand kerchiefs, pens, colour pencils, ties etc. My son who has a collection of railway engines never missed an opportunity to collect some more engine models from this place whenever we visited this place.

        People who are interested in the rich heritage of the country and evolution of the Rail Systems find this place fascinating.
