This year's railway budget allocation documents presented in the Parliament last week had a touch of nostalgia. The cover pages of every zonal railway document highlighted majestic British-era logos of the original railway companies, like the Great Indian Peninsula Railway Company's monogram stating Arte Non Ense (meaning by art [skill], not by sword) on the Central Railway document; the old Bombay, Baroda & Central India logo with coconut trees, and even a palkhi trail for the Western Railway. There's the East Indian Railway Company's signage of the elephant and the cross on the Eastern Railway document, while Eastern Punjab Railway's sunrise and steam loco logo can be spotted for the Northern Railway.
