Amidst CSMT modernization, historic railway relics are being ignored

One of the earliest electric locomotives built in India, Sir Leslie Wilson, is lying in a neglected state at Mumbai CSMT, which is undergoing development, covered in garbage and muck. It was built in the 1920s. Likewise, the remaining artifacts are.

Due to Central Railway Mumbai’s neglect, rare and historic artifacts from India’s first railway company, the Great Indian Peninsula Railway, including an 1858 bridge inscription, one of the country’s first electric locomotives, recognizable vintage steam engines, miniature rail buses, and remnants of the country’s industrial heritage like stone crushers and an antiquated rail printing press, are now lying in ruins and collecting dust.
