Tourist carriage number 2568, on the Great Indian Peninsula Railway. Many British people moved out to India at this time, because it was under British control. People also came out to visit India and spent time travelling around the country. Special tourist trains were laid on for the visitors. The GIPR was opened in 1853, from Bombay to Thane. It expanded quickly and by 1870 stretched all the way across India to Calcutta.
