Rewari Heritage Steam Locomotive Museum is the only surviving steam loco shed in India and houses some of India's last surviving steam locomotives. Built in 1893, it was the only loco shed in North India for a long time. Indian Railways in December 2002 decided to revive it as a heritage museum. The Rewari Steam Loco Shed, situated on the Delhi-Jaipur railway line in Haryana, was the largest meter gauge shed in India. “The steam loco shed in Rewari has become favourite tourist destination for steam lovers and history buffs. It also has much to offer to the present generation who have not witnessed the glorious steam era. With a rural background, the loco shed provides a perfect setting for picturising the past era in films. Rewari was a forgotten Railway colony. The engines, which have appeared in films such as Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, Guru and Love Aaj Kal, are named Rewari King, Sahib, Sultan, Sindh, Angadh, Akbar, Azad, Sher-e-Punjab and Virat. Of 1930 make, Angadh is the oldest. It came to Rewari via the National Rail Museum in Delhi, where it was donated by the Madhya Pradesh Electricity Board.
You have to approach the Northern Railway for permission to shoot here. Officials said this would generate revenue for the Northern Railway besides promoting the heritage shed through movies. Sources said it would earn nearly `4 lakh per day to the railways besides a security deposit of `2.5 lakh for a four-coach train and a steam engine for shooting purposes.
