Steam Engine in front of Coonoor Railway Station

It is the steam engines of the ‘Mountain Railways of India’ that have led to their inclusion in the UNESCO world heritage sites.

The Himalayan railway of West Bengal and the Nilgiri railway of Tamil Nadu are the most famous ones.

In this case, I spotted a steam locomotive from the 19th century in front of the Coonoor railway station. It was just this one piece in what looked like an open museum.
