Virtual tour of heritage
The heritage museum in the Central Railway headquarters at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) in Mumbai is all set to expand and that too not just in physical space but also the virtual space. In addition to almost doubling the current area of the museum, a new app would be launched on the lines of Rail Museum of Delhi that would give the visitors a virtual tour of the heritage of the building as well as the rail services over past 150 years. The museum currently has several artefacts including the old bells, ticket punching machines, signals and even miniaturised coal engines. Silver cutlery used on old trains, coins and several photographs that show the journey of building up of the central rail network can be seen at the museum currently. The experience would be more lively with audio-visual effect.
