This place has been covered only because of what it was turned into during the shooting of Gadar. Otherwise it is just another place. "Amritsar station was painted red as it was in the 1940s. advertisements and posters in the station were pulled down and replaced with ones from the 1940s. All modern fixtures were removed or disguised. was shot on the same platform of Amritsar station where such a train had come in 1947.The steam engine used for the shooting had been hired from the Railway Museum at Delhi. The amazing thing is that all this was done in a 'live' station. Organising coal, diesel and water to fuel them was not easy. There were brake failures as we ran them from Delhi to Bikaner and Punjab." - Extract from the experiences of shooting 'Gadar - Ek Prem Katha' in the Amritsar Railway Station.
