(Also known as FLOWER PLOUGHING ENGINE) It seems, it was made in 1895 and was used to plough agricultural land in England/elsewhere
5 centuries! People who live in Chennai and people who are traveling to Chennai – This place is a must visit!!
********A "Brief Description" about Regional Rail Museum, ICF, Chennai – A tourist spot near Perambur/Villivakkam!*********
Brief Description: If you are wondering whether there would ever be a tourist spot near Perambur, Villivakkam area in Chennai, stop. You may not believe it, but there is one – The Regional Rail Museum @ ICF, Chennai!! This is located on the main road (New Avadi road) and it is close to the Villivakkam junction.
I must say that they have done the Regional Rail Museum in the ICF complex, quite well! I I guess most people in Chennai are not aware of this wonderful museum! The ticket counter is designed like a railway coach. BTW, Entry is 10rs, Camera is 20rs & Toy train ride is 10rs. I didn’t buy the last ticket
...
Read more...
(I thought toy train is only for kids!), but I recommend everyone to buy all the three. Museum Timings: 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM.
For more details please visit: click here
Attached Images:
1 The First photo shows John Flower’s single-cylinder wood-fired steam engine.(Also known as FLOWER PLOUGHING ENGINE) It seems, it was made in 1895 and was used to plough agricultural land in England/elsewhere. It weighs a whopping 23 tonnes and has wide wheels to take that heavy load. This one is located right in front of the new gallery.

Impression of the Visitor: There are so many other exhibits which help the visitor to understand the journey of railways over 1.5 centuries! People who live in Chennai and people who are traveling to Chennai – This place is a must visit!!

Love the replicas of Kolkata Metro's coach and the replica of first class's wooden coach.The first picture of the Steam Locomotive looks more like a tractor :D but seriously speaking............very useful information especially for die hard rail fans.Thanks a lot for sharing and your relentless pursuit of adding as many drops of valuable info and bringing it to us. :)

Behold the fastest aggressive action of Electro-Motive Diesel [EMD] Locomotive! Kalyan WDG-4 comes roaring with blaring horns and furiously rips past Villivakkam with the newly introduced 23 coach 11074 Chennai - Mumbai Lokmanya Tilak Weekly Express train. I consider this a special capture because one normally don't get to witness EMD locomotives in and around the railroads of Chennai.
