Rewari Railway Heritage Museum is near the Rewari railway station.
It’s like a treasure trove for railway history buffs. So, let me begin on what you can expect from this museum.
First things first, the engines. Oh, the engines. They’re a sight to enjoy, and some of them are even in working condition. But, don’t get your hopes up too high. They only fire up every once in a while, usually between October and March. But, it’s worth giving them a call to see if they’ll be fired up during your visit.
Now, the real gems of the museum. Sahib, Sindh, and Sultan. These beauties pulled the first train in India. Can you even imagine the nostalgia?
But, that’s not all folks. They’ve got simulators for coach and steam engines. Trust me, it’s worth a try.
And, if you’re feeling fancy, request to see the two saloons from the bygone era. One from 1921 (Edward VIII) and the other from 1969, decorated with even older regalia.
The road to the museum may be a bit of a hassle, but don’t worry, Google Maps got you covered. It’s just a 2-hour drive from Delhi or a quick 5-minute walk from the Rewari railway station.
The men at the Museum/Loco Shed are the real MVPs. They’re so welcoming and passionate, and they’ll share all the interesting tidbits of information with you. And, don’t forget to watch the video about the renovation and steam trains. It’s a real hoot.
