Rail Museum, New Delhi

Pin It

It has been a while since I posted anything related to travel. So I thought I would share with you some pictures taken at the rail museum here in Delhi. This is my son's THE MOST favourite place. This is the only place he wishes to go on an outing and I have really lost count of the number of times we have visited this museum. I can't blame him, even I have started to love these amazing, colourful vintage trains that are parked here in open space.
The best part of this museum is that you can go near the trains, touch them, climb on them and it is so much fun.

There is also an indoor gallery where you can find many models of old trains, signals and other such things.

Some of the maharaja's private carriages have furnitures and statues inside to give us an idea about how the maharajas traveled those days but this is not open to the public. Though we had visited the museum several times we were not aware of this until the last time when we discovered it accidently while trying to peep through the glass windows. 

These photos are not very clear because I clicked them through the glass windows. They were not visible from outside. Some of these shots were taken even without knowing what was inside. The carriages were closed shut and I put the camerea inside through a small opening in the window and took some of these shots. We were really surprised to see that the furnitures and the bed were all in good condition.

This museum is a fun place to visit and we are going to visit it many more times.
