The intact skyline around the spot is dotted with balloons of all sorts of shapes including shapes made of soft drink cans or dinosaurs etc. When riding high, one feels the strong breeze which is prominent at higher altitudes.

How Does a Hot Air Balloon Work?

Hot air is blown into the balloon through a fan along with the burners light, makes the balloon to fly.

The National Rail Museum exhibits the models of Railway coaches, engines and the likes of the railway department, ranging from the period when railway was first introduced in India. Its pride is a model of India’s very first steam engine train. Its vintage displays include the oldest locomotive in the world which is still working. The Vice regal Dining Car and the Prince of Wales Saloon, Maharaja of Mysore’s Saloon and Fairy Queen are the other royal saloons are worth a look for their intricate interior design.
