The Delhi Rail Museum

Steam engines are like tapirs, getting extinct !!! My childhood fascination for them has diminished a lot. However, last Christmas , I got a chance to visit the rail museum with my sisters family. This photo is of one of the aging beauties, sepia toned for the vintage effect. The museum features two train rides, one driven by a really ancient mono rail engine, which huffs and puffs in a circle, much to the enjoyment of my nieces !!!

I visited this place after twenty years, of course nothing like O'Henry's story, and was pleasantly surprised to see improvements in the museum.
There was a sapera right outside the gates. Definitely a great attraction for the kids and the young at heart. So much for a promotion campaign.
