Our Visit to Chennai Rail Museum’s Joy Train :)

I have been to Regional Rail Museum, Chennai a few years back. But now this museum seems to have changed its name to Chennai Rail Museum and there is a lot of art to be seen everywhere, in addition to the antique rail models, coaches and engines! Have a look at an arty rail coach here –

They have also installed various artworks at many places across the museum. Here is a painting created by a few kids of the ICF family –

Last time, I did not go for a ride in the little joy train there. Actually, it’s a real train that runs on real tracks. Just that it’s relatively small πŸ™‚

Frankly, traveling on that little train seemed like a childish thing to do (back then – during my previous visit). But with age, it seems like I have rediscovered the child in me, as this time we not only went in that joy train but we have also created an elaborate video from that ride (embedded above). In fact, the joy train ride was the focus of our visit. Hmm… πŸ™‚

If you are also interested in rediscovering the child in you, here are the timings for the joy train ride πŸ™‚

The ticket cost of Rs. 40 now includes permission to take photos in cell phone and one joy train ride. Rejoice, all you Chennaiiets πŸ™‚

If you are planning a visit here, just don’t go on a Monday – it’s the weekly holiday. For more details and pics, refer to my earlier blog post.

  1. Glad you had fun taking the toy train ride, and I think apart rediscovering the child within, it’s the company you got made it possible πŸ™‚
    Will check the museum soon

    1. I did come across Delhi rail museum while searching for this rail museum. Probably you could visit it once again and post some pics on your blog πŸ™‚

  2. Nice video. But the other photos are not showing up for some reason. We have been going in trains a lot these days since our kid loves trains. Should take him to rail museum in India sometime.
