Undoubtedly the grandest railway station in India. And deserves to be a world heritage site. The Victorian architecture reminds of the old grand era. It's almost always crowded, but I think it's still convenient for commuters as the crowd is always on the move, unlike other stations where the crowd just keeps increasing in one place. There are many ticket counters too, so getting a ticket is relatively easy.
I would like to say that it is the grandest railway station in India. And deserves to be a world heritage site. The Victorian architecture reminds of the old grand era. It's almost always crowded, but I think it's still convenient for commuters as the crowd is always on the move, unlike other stations where the crowd just keeps increasing in one place. There are many ticket counters too, so getting a ticket is relatively easy but sometimes the queue is long. Its very much convenient for tourists. Because announcements are made in Marathi, Hindi and also English languages. 7 platforms for local trains out of which first 2 are for harbor line, 3 & 4 are for central line slow and 5, 6 & 7 are for central line fast trains (sometimes used for slow trains). Another 11 platforms are for long distance trains. Biggest architecture of the British style and era. More security and cleanliness needed very badly. The subway is very convenient for passengers. Mostly less crowded station. But its very crowded during peak hours.

Very Beautiful Railway Terminal in India. World Heritage Site. Night view of this Railway Terminal is amazing. Long distance Trains originate from here to all others important cities of India. One of the oldest Railway Terminal. Previously known ad Victoria Terminal in British Rules.
An icon of the mega city of Mumbai and the nerve centre of rail transportation. HQ of the central railways of India. The buzz is amazing and the architecture like none other in the world. Millions of passengers pass through this edifice , and amongst the humongous crowds , the station functions like a perfectly chugging train. Has to be seen to be believed.
