  • Chennai Rail museum is an ode to the labor of founding fathers of Indian Railways. Beautifully crafted miniature models of bogeys and engines are a special attraction. The history behind the foundation of Indian Railways was challenging and inspiring. The pictures are neatly maintained and the supporting articles convey the pride and enthusiasm of many illustrous achievements. For a train lover,this visit is mandatory if you are visiting Chennai. The old locomotives and bogeys stationed in the park are few things which you can explore. ICF has done a commendable job in dedicating such a high quality museum to the nation.

  • A v good place to visit with family and an important place to know about the history of trains in various places of India as well as other countries. There are many miniature models of different trains like steam engines to electric trains. And in the outside yard you can see the little more bigger models of trains that are in the form of miniature models inside the museum. For kiss it is a v nice place to enjoy as there is a joy ride in a small train 🚋🚋
