Rail film fest from April 10
New Delhi,
April 6:

‘Train Entering Station’, a 10-second film, considered as one of the world's oldest film is to be screened along with other classics based on the railways in the Rail Film Festival week beginning on April 10, at Siri Fort Auditorium.

Lumiere Brothers from France made this film on railways, among eight other short films, in 1895. The movie is all about a train with a few carriages shown entering a railway station.
“We have for the first time decided to have a film festival, based on railways, during the Railway Week between April 1046,” said a Railway spokes man adding that six films have been selected from the National Film Archives in Pune.

A 120-minute Malayalam film ‘Samantharangal’ is based on the life of a station master. The director Balachandra Menon has shown the life of a station master and his dedication to the railway station. It a new movie, yet to be released, where the director plays the lead role.

Another film to be watched is a 27-minute film on a steam locomotive driver titled ‘Veiled in Vapour’. Directed by Mukul Manglik the film shows the locomotive driver’s love for steam which has nearly become a thing of the past. There are only 70 steam locomotives running in some sectors in the country.

Another documentary film to be looked forward to is a 52-minute film by Victor Banerjee titled ‘' Where no Journeys End’ is based on tourism which is linked through the railways.

Indian Railways have come a long way since the first track was laid between Boribundar to mane covering a distance of 35 kin, as today they have laid over 62,000 km of track joining over 7,000 stations.
Apart from the film festival, the railways is organising three different exhibitions at the Old Delhi, New Delhi and Delhi Cantt railway stations. Historic pictures and growth of in Indian Railways would be put on display for viewing.
