Deccan Queen - 87th Birthday

The introduction of ‘’Deccan Queen’’ between the two premier cities of Maharashtra o­n 1st June 1930 was a major landmark in the history of the Great Indian Peninsula Railway, the forerunner of the Central Railway. This was the first deluxe train introduced o­n the railway to serve 2 important cities of the region and was aptly named after Pune, which is also known as ‘’QueenofDeccan’’ (‘’Dakkhan ki Rani’’).

105 Years of Punjab Mail

PUNJAB MAIL COMPLETES 105 YEARS




The origins of the Bombay to Peshawar Punjab Mail are rather unclear. Based o­n a Cost Estimate paper circa 1911 and a complaint by an irate passenger circa October 12, 1912 about the 'late arrival of the train by a few minutes at Delhi', it has been more or less inferred that the Punjab Mail made her maiden run out of Ballard Pier Mole station o­n 1 June 1912.
