That day 900 guests travelled from Brussels-Allée Verte to Mechelen. The convoy consisted of three trains, each pulled by a fabulous new steam engine: La Flèche, the Stephenson and L’Eléphant. Passengers were seated in 30 carriages, adorned with the national tricolour flag. There were simple open and covered bench wagons. But some more luxurious carriages for the important guests.
This is the largest Indian Flag, atop the hill behind IITB. The second largest flag in India (6.3 × 4.2 m) is flown by the government of Maharashtra atop the Mantralaya building, the state administrative headquarters.
