Indian Railways

complete 160 years on April 16, 2013


Weaving a nation together

Indian Railways, which had a modest beginning in 1853,

has since then been an integral part of the nation

— a network that has held together a population of one billion.

A self-propelled social welfare system

that has become the lifeline of a nation,

Indian Railways has woven a sub-continent together

and brought to life the concept of a united India.
