Carriage Workshop, Lallaguda


About Us

                                  

The Carriage Workshop, Lallaguda was established in 1893 as the Locomotive, Carriage and Wagon Workshop of the Nizam State Railway (NSR). The Government of Hyderabad took over direct control of the Railways in 1930 and renamed it as the Nizam Guaranteed State Railways (NGSR).

It is one of the oldest surviving examples of modern Industrial Architecture in the Twin Cities. It signaled the beginning of major industry in the state. A few structures in use today date from the time of the workshop’s initial commissioning.

The precinct provides us with a glimpse of not only the industrial advances made over more than a century but is also a repository of heritages from a bygone era. Restored wagons, coaches and a variety of artifacts relating to railway history have been preserved and quite a few are displayed at the site. Notable among these one finds a meticulously restored coach of 1886 vintage.
