Photograph of the reversing station at Bhor Ghat, from the Macnabb Collection (Col James Henry Erskine Reid): Album of miscellaneous views, taken by Deen Dayal in the 1880s. The railway connecting Thana through the Thal and Bhor Ghat inclines was the initiative of George Clark, Chief Engineer of the Bombay Government. The Great Indian Peninsula Railway Company developed the scheme in the 1840s and the Bhor Ghat pass was opened in 1861 as the main route over the Western Ghats linking the sea coast with the Deccan.
