Central and Western Railways Monday celebrated their Foundation Day.
The two zonal railways were restructured on November 5, 1951.
CR was formed by integrating Nizam state, Scindia state and Dholpur state railways with the erstwhile Great Indian Peninsula Railway which was set up earlier by an Act of the British Parliament in 1849.
WR and CR organised functions to mark the occasion.
While WR held an exhibition at its Churchgate headquarters, CR introduced an "Utkrisht" rake for the Mumbai-Pune Pragati Express.
Utkrisht rakes are upgraded trains with better interiors and passenger amenities.
