Visitors to the Google page on Tuesday will be taken on a short journey into the history of Indian railways, with a doodle marking 'India's first passenger train'.
The doodle has a train, pulled by a steam engine, chugging along over a background dotted with palm trees and a structure in the distance.
Indeed, 16 April, 1853, was the day on which the first commercial passenger train left Mumbai's Bori Bunder for Thane.
The train; pulled by three locomotives - Sindh, Sultan, and Sahib; was greeted by a 21 gun salute when it was pulling out of the platform.
