Kolkata Trams
Prakash Tendulkar, February 2001



Nehru Science Museum, at Worli (in Mumbai) has some well guarded secrets. One of them is Kolkata Trams. They have one pre-electrification era 1 horse-power tram and early version of electric tram. Although they are not and cannot be fully restored, the view takes you back 100 years.
