Kalka Mail
Kalka Mail is the name of a train in India connecting Howrah in the E.R. state of West Bengal to Kalka in Haryana . This Connects it to Shimla , the hill station capital of Himachal Pradesh and one time summer capital of India .
Run by the EAST INDIAN RAILWAYS COMPANY , the train began operation between Calcutta and Delhi in 1866 as the " EAST INDIAN RAILWAY MAIL " . It's run was extended from Delhi to Kalka in 1891 . The train was the principal mechanism by which British Civil servants moved to their summer capital in Shimla from Calcutta with the entire Government machinery traveling on the train at the start of the summer months and returning it at the end of the summer . Both stations , Howrah as well as Kalka , had internal carriageways running along the platform so that the Viceroy and the other high ranking Officer could drive right up to their rail coaches . The carriageways at Howrah is still used today and runs between Platform 8 and 9 but carriageway at Kalka has been converted into Platform .
