[39 Photos] Berpiknik Di Stesen Keretapi, Muzium Keretapi Golra Sharif Oleh British Raj 1882 & Gadis Comel Red Riding Hood | Winter 2012 | Golra Sharif Railway Station, Sector E-11 | Islamabad, Pakistan

Pada pagi 14 Januari 2012, ketika Islamabad masih lagi diselubungi dengan kabus musim sejuk yang kering, saya mengajak beberapa rakan-rakan warganegara Malaysia untuk singgah dan berpiknik di Stesen Keretapi Golra Sharif. Terletak di Sektor E-11, stesen keretapi ini adalah 1 jam perjalanan sahaja dari rumah saya di Sektor F-7/4. Musim sejuk yang dingin beku. Waktu pagi pula tu. Memang terketar-ketar lah sewaktu keluar dari kereta setibanya di Stesen Keretapi Golra Sharif ini.

Stesen Keretapi Golra Sharif ini telah dibina sekitar tahun 1882 oleh British Raj atau Kerajaan British pada ketika itu. Pakistan dan India masih lagi satu kawasan jajahan oleh British. Saya lihat stesen keretapi ini agak cantik dan bersih. Terdapat sebuah muzium keretapi di sini. Muzium ini dibuka setiap hari. Namun anda perlu memberitahu Station Master untuk melawat dan mendapatkan kunci muzium. Station Master Office hanya bersebelahan sahaja dengan bangunan utama di sini. Ini bukan pertama kali saya datang ke sini. Ini adalah kali ketiga saya singgah ke sini. Itu yang saya tahu akan hal dan perihal pembukaan stesen keretapi dan muzium keretapi di Golra Sharif ini.

Seperti biasa, kami rakyat Malaysia akan lepak-lepak dan berehat di sini. Dikhabarkan keretapi akan melalui stesen ini sekitar jam 11.30 pagi. Lambat lagi tu! Tunggulah kami di sini daripada jam 8 pagi sehinggalah ke tengahari. Mujurlah kami telah membawa sedikit makanan untuk alas perut di sini. Sedang asyik berlegar-legar di sini, ternampak sekumpulan kanak-kanak comel bermain-main di sekitar stesen keretapi ini. Ada seorang kanak-kanak perempuan yang begitu comel. Rambutnya berwarna perang dan sedikit kemerahan. Umpama Little Red Riding Hood. Bapanya ada di sebelahnya. Kami meminta kebenaran untuk bergambar bersama mereka.

Di stesen ini terdapat banyak pokok-pokok banyan yang besar-besar. Pokok-pokok ini diwarnakan dengan cat putih di bahagian perdunya. Nampak unik dan cantik pula di dalam gambar yang telah saya ambil. Pokok-pokok ini pastilah telah berusia lebih 100 tahun dan telah menyaksikan sejarah di stesen keretapi ini. Seronok juga duduk-duduk sambil menikmati suasana pagi yang sejuk di sini. Pemandu saya sempat juga memesan doothpati chai melalui kedai makan yang berhampiran.

Sedikit maklumat daripada Wikipedia :

The Railway Heritage Museum was established in October 2003. From Relics dating back to the inception of railways in the subcontinent by the British to memorabilia depicting the creation of the museum are housed and preserved in this heritage site. The Rail Heritage Museum is housed in three different halls to contain artifacts reflecting history of Railway over a period of more than 150 years including almost 100 years of undivided India. As a part of the museum there is a big yard where cranestrolleys, saloons, locomotivescoaches andtracks are marshaled impressively, portraying the railway’s march forward through time. The museum houses an impressive blend of artifacts covering the many facets of the railways systems. Mechanical models, signalling systems, communication tools and the evolution of operational protocols are preserved and chronologically displayed in the museum. The museum also displays the social impact and anthropological implications of the railways on the human geography of the multi-racial sub continent. An open yard displays a wide array of relics which have become extinct on the railway lines around the world. The steam and electric locomotives, a German postal car, a saloon car used by the last Indian viceroy, Lord Mountbatten, and another saloon car belonging to the Maharaja of Jodhpur from theJodhpur railways given as a wedding present to his daughter are a few examples.[3]
