This was a fascinating documentary of the train system in India. It is a pleasant family pick for all ages. Stimulating enough for our post-grad degree minds and our 4 kids (all below 8). We thoroughly enjoyed this.

Very groovy look at India from the vantage of the largest single rail system in the world.

Just some interesting facts:

The Indian Railways is the largest single employer in the world to-date.

The Indian railway was originally constructed by the British as a means of efficiently bleeding the people and natural resources back to Britain; it was later handed over to the Indian government in 1947 when the British finally "quit India".

The last "Toy Train" still runs to Darjeeling (at least at the time this film was made).

Really, this film gives some very interesting facts about India, the railway, India's colonial history, and incredible views of the rural and urban areas of India.

An excellent escape for those strapped for cash or other limitations on travel. Visually stimulating and interesting.
