India's 1st Train Trip With Google Doodle

With a sounding train tracking a adornment of smoke in a scenery of palm trees and what looks like a palace with domes and minarets, Google on Tuesday placed a doodle to celebrated India's first passenger train journey. On April 16, 1853, the introductory railway on the Indian landmass ran over a length of 21 miles from Bombay to Thane in what is present Maharashtra state. Three steam engines, Sultan, Sindh and Sahib, proceeded 400 invited passengers in 14 carriages on a 57 minute traveling. The google doodle, in dazzling shades of orange and yellow, displayed a steam locomotive pulling a passenger train on a palm-lined track. The front of the engine shaped one of the two 'Os' of Google. While the Bombay-Thane track is specifically seen as the birth of what is now one of the world's biggest railway systems, the first railway line in India was set a good 21 years earlier in 1832 near Chintadripet Bridge, presently in Chennai.
