Heritage Steam Shed Rewari
Built in 1893, it was the only loco shed in North India for a long time and a part of the track connecting Delhi with Peshawar. After steam engines were phased out by the 1990s and steam traction on metre gauge tracks was discontinued in January 1994, the loco shed remained in neglect for many years before it was decided to rehabilitate it. The steam shed reopened in May 2002. In December 2002 Indian Railways declared it a heritage museum.
