Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Locomotives in India consist of electric and diesel locomotives. Steam locomotives are no longer used, except in heritage trains. Locomotives are also called locos or engines. The Bengal Sappers of the Indian Army were the first to run a steam locomotive in India. The steam locomotive named 'Thomason' ran with two wagons for carrying earth from Roorkee to Piran Kaliyar in 1851, two years before the first passenger train ran from Bombay to Thane in 1853. The steam engine is presently exhibited at Roorkee Railway Station.show more
