Welcome to Rewari Steam Loco Shed which re-opened on the 9th Oct 2010, join us in celebrating the return of the Steam Locomotives. The restoration of this heritage shed from a ruin, lost and forgotten, to its present grand state has been a long process involving timely funding and more than that the dedication, planning and expeditious execution by my Engineers.

Rewari Steam Loco shed is now on its way to take its prominent place on the steam map of the world, it has had many visitors, besides steam enthusiasts from India and abroad, who have come to enjoy the steam engines in their full glory. There are many who saw a working Steam Locomotive for the first time in their life. Seeing such huge machines at work is one the most humbling experience in life and perhaps, the most joyous one too. For the old timers, its pure nostalgia of an era gone by, where every child wanted to be an Engine Driver and blow the whistle.

Rewari Steam Locomotive Shed is the only surviving steam loco shed in India housing some of India's last surviving steam locomotives. Built in 1893, a decade before the Old Delhi Railway Station, it was the only loco shed in North India for a long time and part of the track connecting Delhi with Peshawar, while the metre gauge track built in 1873 from Delhi towards Rewari is India’s oldest. After steam engines were phased out of Indian Railways in early 1990s, the shed remained in neglect for many years, before it was revived in December 2002 dedicated to the Nation by the Indian Railways, as a Heritage steam locomotive shed. Subsequently, two lines were removed to make way for a broad gauge (BG) line, connecting the shed with the Rewari-Bathinda main section. Next, four BG engines and a 30-tonne steam crane were brought in from the National Rail Museum Delhi, and this was followed by construction of a dual broad gauge and a metre gauge locomotive shed, a machine shop, a wheel pit, a turntable, a tool room and a mini exhibition hall. Besides the metre gauge steam engines, five broad gauge steam engines have been restored and are being maintained for heritage service. Presently, the shed houses 09 steam engines.
