Some Cherished Railway Gifts

Each year, my birthday warrants people gifting something related to trains. Usually these are kid versions of trains running around on plastic tracks. 

However, the year 2006 was special. Some of my closest friends went to the rail museum in Nagpur (around 40 kms from college) and brought me some amazing models of trains, pictures of which i am posting below.

The Rajdhani Express: India’s high speed all A/C train

This coupled with a book on how the Mumbai local system came into being have probably been the most amazing ‘railway gifts’ I have received.
