The history of Indian Railways is 170 years old and there is one unique train which still attracts a lot of tourists. Where on one hand Indian Railways draws attention from all over the world through many royal trains and still running steam locomotives, the operation of some of the traditional trains also separates Indian Railways from the railway network around the world. Some special pictures of Indian Railways are seen in Rajasthan. Here is a lake on which a train runs under the joint venture of Indian Railway and Rajasthan Government. According to the information, this salt carrying train has a petrol engine which is several decades old.

Only train in the country which run on lake

The train we are talking about still runs in Sambhar Lake, about 90 km from Jaipur. About 9% of salt used in India comes from Sambhar Lake. Many renowned companies in the country work to remove salt from this lake. The most special thing is that there is no water in Sambhar Lake and Salt is still being removed from this area.

Not for common travelers

This unique train of India leaves in the morning from the Sambar station. But the passengers in this train are not ordinary travelers. In this train there are workers, who work on removing salt in the lake. In this train carrying salt from this lake spread across Nagaur, Ajmer and Jaipur, all the cans are made of wood, which attracts tourists who come here.

Bollywood's Attraction

This unique salt train of India draws attention to Bollywood in addition to ordinary tourists. The result of this is that many things related to the train and the meter gauge trek spread in Sambhar Lake is seen in many films. So far, many films have been shot at Sambhar Lake including PK, Gulaal, Drona and Jodhaa Akbar.

Hrithik Roshan will also shoot

On the other hand, Hrithik Roshan will also shoot his next film, Super 30 from February 18 in Sambhar Lake, which will be released next year. Significantly, even before that, Hrithik Roshan has shot here for Jodhaa-Akbar. Hrithik's look in the film Super 30 is being liked so far.
