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.
