    Tracing the Blueprint of Berkley's Line

    This is a grand piece of research, one that really takes one down memory lane to those early days when Bombay was a group of seven islands joined by walkways and causeways. The arrival of the first train was a spectacle for everyone, and for many, it was the treat of a lifetime. The arrival of the Bombay--Thana line is told in full detail, such detail as is not found anywhere in the literature. Having covered this, the author takes us on a heritage walk, station by station, listing various he...

    An engrossing, well researched book

    I was very eager to read this book since a few weeks, and finally finished reading it today. It was a wonderful read. The book is a nice combination of the story of how Mumbai's suburban railway was established, and the history of Mumbai. The book is successful in taking you back in time. It gave me good insights of how Mumbai used to be in that era.

    Author has researched well on the subject, and that shows in the book. First chapter deals with planning & construction of the first line. It ...

    Splendid and rigorous research, simple to read.

    This is a must-have book for railway enthusiasts and those interested in Mumbai's history. Though it mainly speaks about the history of the Mumbai suburban train system, it has doses of other aspects of Mumbai too. For example, public hospitals, town halls, the plague epidemic etc.

    Rigorous research is the backbone of this book. Loaded with facts and trivia. Do not hesitate, if you are thinking of ordering it.

    Halt Station

    It is indeed a very excellent book with lots of information about Indian Railways. Till now wasnt aware about how Mumbai Railways was formed. Though I knew Railway in India started from Mumbai.
    It seems Rajendra Aklekar has taken tremendous efforts to study and compile this book.
    A true masterpiece of information about Indian Railways in Mumbai.
