Google Doddle for Indian Railway celebrating 160th anniversary

16 April 1853 was the historic date when India’s first passenger train journey took place between Bori Bunder in Mumbai and Thane. Covering a distance of 34 kilometres, it was hauled by three locomotives, Sahib, Sindh, and Sultan.

Google is commemorating that momentous event with a celebratory doodle on its India home page. The India’s first passenger train journey shows a steam locomotive pulling a passenger train on a palm-lined railway track.
