Parel




Railfans love Parel for one big reason - the Central Railway loco shed. Diesel locos of the Central Railway come here often to be repaired.

If you see grown up men on weekend mornings with their eyes wide open with delight on the chicken neck where WR kisses CR, it's for catching a glimpse of some locomotives not normally seen in Mumbai. And you are likely to find something interesting here. For example, two weeks back I spotted a Narrow Gauge Diesel Loco here (that was being transported in a trailer truck).

Parel is also home to the Railway College where the mechanics are trained and this scale model welcomes visitors to the college.
