|Ceiling of Heritage Building, CST|
I had read about the Heritage Tour offered by CST in Mumbai Mirror. The article is probably some months old. From that day I had been planning to go for it and I finally managed to take the tour last week.
|CST Building was declared a Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2004|
|Engine Model of GIPR|
|The original bell that was used to announce arrival & departure of trains|
|Water pots used for serving water - the black one for first class passengers and the brass pot for the 3rd class|
|The very first number plate created. It is still used by the toy train at Matheran. Don't miss the first railway timetable|
The land for constructing Victoria Terminus was donated to the British by Jagannath Shankar Seth. The building itself took ten years to complete. The building is constructed in the Indian Gothic Style. It has been declared a Heritage Site by UNESCO since 2004.
