    Dont know why but the travel-log of this locomotive is pretty much similar to Pakistan itself. Dragged around by bullocks and stowed away by elephants.

    And, if combined with the mentioned shoe-throwing incident of Karachi, this becomes more symbolic the way we are being bombarded with both tangible and intangible kinds for the charge of being “monstrous” harbourers of widely propagated evil forces.

    Wow! your research brings us so close to our country and its history. My 9 year old son is simply enthralled as he loves locos. Well done.

    Janab, really an interesting collection of information, nicely presented. Keep it up. I felt so close to the ravi really. But am sure all of us here would be more enthraled if you can dig out some pictures of the bullocks pulling the monster. wishing you luck for this. I will surf and if found would share with us all.

    dua for all.

    @Owais Mughal,

    Oh ! what a pity, the 1862 Loco could not be preserved, so
    as you rightly mentionned ” Eagle is the oldest surviving
    Loco which was built in 1876 in England.
    Thanks
