To know how Bhusawal gained its importance let us look at the history of Central Railway.

The Provenance

Lord Dalhousie in the year 1843 had conceived the possibility of opening up an Indian Railway network. He was a far-sighted British governor-general who promoted rapid construction of trunk lines; that reached inland from the ports to meet in the interior. India's first coast-to-coast line, from Bombay to Calcutta, was finished in 1870.

With the stimulus of India's thriving agriculture and industry, the country had by 1913 assembled 56,300 km (35,000 miles.) of railway; far more per square kilometer of territory than in Australia or Africa. Therefore, we owe much to Lord Dalhousie. Because of Lord Dalhousie's efforts, an best-organized Asian railway network had emerged in 1850. Although Lord Dalhousie had been the precursor; but 'The Great Indian Peninsula Railway' had been the forerunner of Indian Railway's network.
