A heritage train with 165-year-old steam engine would run between Harbour Terminus railway station and Ernakulam Junction station on Saturday and Sunday.
The train, which can accommodate 40 passengers, would conduct two trips per day. The train was brought from Nagercoil to Kochi marshalling yard on Tuesday. The route between the Harbour Terminus and Ernakulam junction would be around 8km.
The authorities had at first tried to run the heritage run through the Vallarpadom bridge; however, they abandoned the idea due to the lack of permissions.
The heritage train had conducted service for over 55 years before getting preserved as a heritage material. The train was recently refurbished and made suitable for service. Read More
