  • One would think why anyone would want to visit a railway station of a new unexplored city and that to in the night. My massi told me that the best time to see CST is in the evening. And people, this architectural landmark didn't look like a station to me at all. It looked like a fort, a fort presenting the city. The lighting were glorifying the beauty more. It is the finest railway station I have ever seen. It was magnificently lit at night.

  • Architectural beauty heritage site head quarters is standing tall as the landmark and heart of Mumbai City and the whole transport system catering the needs of the average passengers to their destination almost busy giving 24 x 7 services. Although the terror attack was the past memory the Indian Railways always give priority to safety and security of passengers and taking care by improving the amenities and facilities at affordable cost. The station was kept clean and properly maintained But there needs strict measures to control beggars, trespassers, hawkers , pick pockets and miscreants for the welfare of the passengers especially for women in the evening.
