The 164th anniversary of the first train, which ran between Mumbai and Thane, was today celebrated by a group of citizens at the railway station here.
A programme was organised by a Passengers Association - Railway Pravasi Sanghatana. A five kilo cake was cut and distributed to passengers to mark the occasion.
Sanghatana's President Nandkumar Deshmukh said travel safety was important.
