Vir­tual tour of her­itage

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

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.
