“Heritage of Indian Railway”

The National Rail Museum is a museum in Chanakyapuri area of New Delhi. This Museum exhibits the rail heritage of India. It opened on the 1 February 1977. Lots of old original Coaches and Engines of British era are on display.

Rail Museum is a home to over 300 years of history and over a million wonderful objects in India. Museum is an amalgamation of rare steam locomotives, historical pictures, railway artifacts that are displayed along with some static and working models of a wide variety of trains in India. The provision of an informative tablet right next to every exhibit makes it a knowledgeable place to visit. An adjoining building in the premises of the museum harbours some of the very old pictures as well as miniature exhibits of the railways, which have been prohibited from photography.

Museum also houses pics, crockery, parts and working models of trains. A toy train offers rides around that site on regular days. The prime attraction here is the Fairy Queen, built in 1855, which is considered to be one of the best preserved steam locomotive engines of her age. A ride in joy train and mono rail (PSMT) is the most exciting experience besides boating. The best thing about this place is that there is no restriction on touching or climbing upon the static trains. One can closely examine the ancient trains with a free hand.
