Indian Railway commemorated 150 Glorious Years on April16, 2002.

Preparations for this ceremony was going on at Parel Loco shed of Central Railway for several days. This included restoring two steam locomotives, WP 7061 and WP 7015 to perfect working order. It was certainly not a small task.

Rehearsal of the actual ceremonial run took place on April 14, 2002.

Myself and my colleagues Sarosh Mehta and Shrinivas Joshi, both founding members of Godrej Gang of Rail fans have made best possible efforts to cover up this event at different stages.

Hope you enjoy these pictures. Your feedback will be appreciated.

Sincerely,

Viraf Mulla
