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?

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.

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

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

A great documentary. We get a glimpse of not only the railway and the
network but the people as well. A very touching presentation indeed. I
deeply appreciate to the person who made it possible for the world to see
Indian Railway and its people

Автор indus valley civilization (2 года)
the video is not visualizing india as a third world country. it is
MARVELING at the amazing beauty and overall fascination of the steam engine
and steam railroad power. india as a subject country in the video happens
to be an afterthought. i know it says india boldly in the title but that's
not what this is about. it could be any land. it couldn't be any train(s).
many european cities and especially new york city and london have advanced
transit systems far ahead of india. you are wrong.

Автор Xinyuan12345 (1 год)
It still is a developing nation, that's undeniable. You can't change that
fact. But yes, I do sympathize with how you feel when certain parts are
highlighted (such as the poverty that a massive portion of Indians are in,
or the underdeveloped areas) and other parts are forgotten (the flashy and
modern cities). However, this video was not made with the intent of
revealing the "truth" of India. One can never really know much at all about
a country until they have lived/been there for a long time.

I've watched each and every scene and understood the meaning of a
relationship between Man and Machine and the language between them could
not be spoken again with Steam Engine. We get many things in this Modern
