Tough Trains: India's Independence Railroads

In this episode of Tough Trains, Zay Harding takes on an epic journey across one of the world's biggest railway networks. These railways were built during the 19th century by the British to move troops and raw materials across the land, and ultimately played a role in the independence of the country a century later.

Indian Railways operations cover 29 states and seven union territories.
