The Central Railway (CR) is planning to expand the size of its museum situated at its headquarters at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSTM) by incorporating modern technology.
The heritage gallery is spread across 1,500 sq ft on the ground floor of CSTM’s south-wing and is built at a cost of ₹22 lakh. It was opened by CR General Manager B B Modgil in January 2010.
Among its exhibits are replicas of drawings by CST Chief Architect F W Stevens, rare photographs, historic stamps, weights, a clock, a bell, and equipment, besides models of phased-out trains.
