6 May 2018
Enjoyed it thoroughly. Facts described in this book are based on research. You can find the references of each and every photograph, letter and events. People, who are interested in the history of India and of course those who are rail enthusiasts, will have a ball. So much unknown and never-told-before information is revealed in this book.
Events are described in chronological order: conception, proposal, construction, operation and expansion. The book highlights the people who played crucial roles in making the railway a reality in the country and the impact it had with their untimely deaths.After construction the biggest challenge faced was it's successful operation to which we are still looking for solutions.To some extent you will get an idea that the present scenario of the Indian Railways is not what the promoters and builders had on their minds at the time of its inception.
