INDIA: Preserved Steam

Locomotive WP 7161 is a Chittranjan Locomotive Works built engine, beginning runs  in 1965. This locomotive was re-built and brought back for a special run in 2012.

Most of the locomotives in India, during the reign of steam, were built, of course by the colonial British that ruled India.  Since then, American-built locomotives were also used.

This locomotive is one of the bullet-nosed streamlined designs that gained royal favor with the Royal Indian government and gave service on some of the more elite express train service across the Indian continent.
