1857 plaque and gas lamps saved from scrap
1857 was the year when the Indian Mutiny was fought.. It was also the year when the Great Indian Peninsula Railway began the construction of a road over bridge over India's first railway line... The connect is deadly and the romance of the same old line and the bridge remained for more than 150 years. In August 2009, the bridge was brought down. But some elements saved from the scrap torch to remain as memoirs for ever...A year later, they are resting in the railway museum at Mumbai CST...
