Another relic along India's first railway line pulled down

Sigh! A relic along Indian Railways' first railway line goes down. Old stone cabin Kurla station on platform 1 demolished to make way for a public utility. Not that it was a part of the actual first line, but definitely along the original route of the G.I.P Railway, the country's first railway company and belonging to that era, a cute little stone structure. The first black/white pic in the collage is a shot of the same cabin as featured in the 1974 Hindi film '27 Down' directed by Awtaar Krishna Kaul.
