Delhi Darshan #National Rail Museum

Misstalkaholic ki & ka movie

I felt sad when I saw Ki&Ka movie. There was a scene pictured in the film in the National Railway Museum where the hero takes heroine on a date. Being a Delhiite, I have never been to railway museum and I felt a tremendous wave of anger on myself. Then happened nothing, but I planned a visit to National Rail Museum.

The first of its kind in the country, The National Railway Museum of India is situated in the embassy region of Chanakyapuri, New Delhi. This museum focuses on preserving rail heritage of the country. Here you can see many models of trains, signaling equipment, antique furniture, etc. If you want to spend a day with friends or family, then you will have fun here for sure.

I guess I am the one & only who went wildly successful in running with the train. The person who went with me said, are you really serious?

At last, I reached my stop at Bikaner where I wanted to go for so long!

Rail Museum brings back fond memories of antiquity. I hope you enjoyed with me. It was fun, craziness, a childhood that came out over there.

  1. COOL…WHAT BIG BUFFER PLATES YPU ARE BETWEEN! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am a railway enthusiast, myself…although less active than when I was younger! One of my treasured possessions–although I can’t play it–is a Nick Lero video tour of the steam trains of India NS Pakistan.

  2. Nice photos and writing. Delhi does have so many jewels hidden. have you seen the sound and light shows at Purana Qila and Red Fort?

  3. Hey I have some destructive criticism; First) next time start a fire in the proximity of the lamb/sheep so that it will inspire some more drama (urgency)
    2nd) Wear a “Flash” costume when running in front of the train, it will add more realism.
    3rd) when posing for the shot where you keep the trains apart wear a Super Girl outfit, and it is alright not to show signs of stress or sweat, after all you will be as Super Girl it would be a breeze, a snap to be stronger that a “locomotive”
    There should be more destructive criticism bu am feeling generous, so generous in fact that I will now shut off adblocker (penny blocker to you).
    And oh yes, what a beautiful post and who is the pretty girl???????

    1. Haha, the first featured image is a still from a Bollywood film. So, that pretty girl is not me obviously. Aw. Never mind. I like your criticism and I am really enjoying reading it. I will keep your points in mind for future. I hope I’ll be able to do more craziness in future and this time with costume. Agh, who’s gonna pay for it. Yay, my ads huh!

      1. Yes, and it will be fine if the pennies made could only procure tatters of the Super Hero outfit cause A Super Hero gets a lot of wear and tear on outfits which are not invulnerable as the Hero is.

  5. I am a rail fan, and I enjoy railroad. If I am ever in India, I hope to visit that museum. As a writer of railroad articles and railroad photographer, I enjoy thy post. Thank you for the great photos.

    1. Railroad writer and photographer, wow your job must be interesting… You must visit India for sure, we have few of the railroads which are listed under world heritage like Toy Train. You’ll like it here.

  6. Hi, Falak! Thank you for the lovely pictures at the railway museum. Please don’t be mad at yourself if you can’t go to many places. It is expensive to do these kinds of things and it is okay if we can’t always go. It will make it very special when you can get to go to something. I can’t go here, so thank you for showing us!

  7. Better late than never and thanks for sharing. Oh, yes, Ki & Ka. That scene was lovely. Arjun’s character sure had a thing for trains!

  8. I liked your running pose in front of the train and the buffer sandwich between two wagons not to mention the sweet captions for each picture perfected by you in them ๐Ÿ™‚
