The Great Indian Railway

This was produced in 1995. Sit back and grab a cold one while you enjoy this ride through India on classic trains. A great film to watch with family. More than trains, it's about India! Skip to 1:30 to start the feature program right away. I left the commercials in at the beginning of the video to show you how videos were produced back then. It seems like such a short time ago but it's almost an entire generation already...The railways are changing by the decade in India. This takes you back into the past in small bits...what was it like when the railway system was introduced by the British? What is it like now?

Id love to see another great indian railway documentary now in 2015

Автор nightlightabcd (3 месяца)
I think that in times to come, that India will wish that they had save a
few more of these wonderful steam engines. In time they will find that
there is money to be made for the old steam excursions. if not that then
maybe some in a museum.

This a great documentary ..Indian Rlys should get this from Natgeo and
archive this and show it to future recruits.

Автор Julia Limpin (18 дней)
beautiful educational video--it sadly moved me--and wat sooo despaired me
is how those steam locomotives vanished without even any sense of
sentimental value!!!..i'd rather see them in some tourist parks..or
permanent exhibit--for their years of incomparable services!!!..GODBLESS u
for this video..thanks

Thanks for posting in Hi-Res. I had watched and recorded the original
broadcast on VHS, later digitized it. Grew up with steam locomotives and
lovingly observed them until I left India in 1981. Still passionate about
them and will always be. The show bring backs fond memories travelling by
Gujarat Mail from Bombay to Ahmedabad every summer.

Folks, don't get me wrong. I grew up riding the New York City's subways,
Long Island Railroad and New Jersey Transit to visit relatives and the PATH
[between New York & New Jersey] trains to go to college. I have nothing
against new and improved transit. However, hold on to the old. Do not
disregard it just to make money. Use the old steam trains as living
history. If one does not know the history, how will one understand the

INDIA is amazing and indians must be proud of their homeland.

this video is very old at that time mumbai was bombay

Автор indus valley civilization (2 года)
yes i understand it is old and that is the entire point. it is a
celebration of indian railway history. we will never again see the power of
steam engines and hear that sound of raw power coming from the engine car.
there are plenty of videos that show the monorails or new transport systems
but what fun is that? you can't see or sense the power of electricity. it's
completely invisible. with steam, you see and hear it. it is overwhelming.
it's a more sensual experience.

Greatest Video on The Great Indian Railways. This is fabulous

Автор indus valley civilization (2 года)
i think indian directors and producers aim for emotional cinema. western
cinema (well in this case) is a bit more realistic and a lot more
"journalistic" where technical details are discussed "emotionally" if you
know what i mean. i just saw batman the dark knight rises two hours ago and
comparing it to raone by shahrukh khan, i can see that bollywood compared
to hollywood is just different. not better or worse. just a different
approach. i enjoy both styles. variety is good in life :)

I would like to see an electric engine made up to look like a steam engine.
It could play pre-taped sounds just as a DSLR camera does when clicked and
also not pollute. Pollution is not romantic at all
