Kalka Shimla Railway Line

The ancient narrow guage track traversing through the foothills of the Himalayas from Kalka to Shimla was declared a UNESCO Heritage Site a few months ago. Indian Railways is now plannig a series of activities to celebrate the event on November 8th and 9th.

Here is an excerpt on the news from Punjab News Line: ..local Panchayats and School Children would welcome the visitors with flags and balloons and exhibitions of rare photos, maps, artifacts etc. will be displayed at Barog and Shimla Railway Stations, she added. She said that dedication ceremony, Himachali cultural programmes with fire works will be organized at Shimla in the evening and special cover and UNESCO certificate will be released. A plaque will be unveiled and foundation stone for Railway Museum will be laid down..

In the meanwhile, railway authorities are considering resurrecting more steam engines - there are 43 of them in all that are left, and the railways sees a good tourism potential.
