160th Anniversary of the first passenger train in India
Today 16th april 2013 is the 160th anniversary of the first passenger train in India. It is also the subject of the Google doodle. The first plan for a rail system in India was put forward in 1832. The first rail line in the subcontinent came up near Chintadripet Bridge (in Chennai) in 1836 as an 'experimental line'. A 5.6 km long rail line was established between Red Hills and the stone quarries near St. Thomas Mount in 1857.
