1860 Bombay-Poona Railway Bridge Construction Photo-Present Trains Crossing

Very Rare Photo of Bombay -Poona Rail construction ( oldest Bore Ghat Viaduct - Bridge ) in Karjat - Lonavala Section . ( Around 1860 )

For 1860 c Photo , please Click :-

Please note the construction going on the Right side of the Pic. A supply train is unloading construction material on a slide on the hill side .

In the above photo , shuttering for arches of the bridge are being built.

Some thing like this pic( for giving idea only  on how arches of viaducts were constructed at that time )

We quote :-

" one of the oldest viaducts constructed during the inception of Rail Connectivity between Bombay and Poona dating back to the year 1858 still strong situated in the breath taking Bore Ghat section between Karjat & Lonavala.

The viaduct had 2 Meter gauge lines running at the start , later when the line was converted to Broad gauge it could only accommodate a single broad gauge line while additional lines were constructed parallel to this viaduct far apart. "

Return of Maggie- My Personal Thoughts

Maggie Returns
We are Thrilled
Deja vu Feeling -Return of Coca Cola , Pepsi
Pepsi made a quiet voluntary exit from India when I was in school ( PPS 1968 -74 ), A fellow Nabhaite was nicknamed Pepsi
Coke was forced to move out in 1977 when I was in St. Stephen's College Delhi. I cannot forget the gesture of one of my friends ( in Rudra South ) who after vacations brought cans of Coke for me from Tokyo.
