The Railway Heritage Park cum Museum at Tinsukia has been set up at the confluence of two historic Railway systems of North eastern India. Namely the Dibru Sadiya Railway (DSR) and the Assam Bengal Railway (ABR), which were linked at Tinsukia City on 1st March 1903. The Museum has adopted DSR & ABR as its prime themes. in addition, it also contains a small gallery dedicated to Daijeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR), which is a World Heritage site declared by UNESCO. Designed in the form of a Park, the Museum showcases the rich heritage of Indian Railways in general and that of Northeast Frontier Railway in particular. Among its special features are the Air Conditioned Indoor Exhibition Gallery modeled after the Historic Lekhapani Station of Dibru Sadiya Railway, Virasat – the Heritage hall, which houses vintage Steam & Diesel Locos of Meter gauge era, and an Air Conditioned Seminar Hall on Wheels. An original Loco turntable of 1892, built in U.K. and bridge Pillars built between 1894 & 1898 stand proudly in the Museum today and remind us of the untiring dedication of Railway Pioneers of the 19th Century. The Children’s Park, a Toy Train For joy rides along with a Mini Station, coupled with gardens and fountains promise a unique experience to young & old alike to enjoy and simultaneously learn about the great legacy of the Indian Railway System.
If you are visiting Tinsukia for the first time then you can locate this “Railway Heritage Park” very easily as the park is situated beside the main Tinsukia Railway Junction. The park remains open 6 days a week ( Monday Closed) and the Timing is 3.00pm to 8.00pm. Even though the park is open till 8.00pm, but you have to enter before 7.30pm. Actually 8.00pm is the closing time. Ok, now let me tell you that to enter the Park you have to pay a very small Entry Fee of RS. 10. but if you are baby ( below 6 years) then congratulation, you can get away with only RS. 5.
Below I have posted a few Photographs of the park which are taken by me ( Nirab Sarma ) except the last one, which I have collected from Wikipedia. And all the above information are collected from Indian Railway’s Website.
