Indian Railways was practically born on 16th April, 1853 when a train ran for the first time in India from Bombay to Thane, covering a distance of 21 miles and carrying about 400 guests. For general public, the first section from Hathras Road to Mathura Cantonment was opened on 19th October, 1875. Since then the Indian Railways has progressed by leaps and bounds and now it is the largest network in Asia and the world's second largest under one management.

Initially, the reservation of tickets was done manually, till about 1986. Computerized ticketing system was introduced in 1987 at very small scale but at present, reservation process has been computerized to a large extent, except for some remote areas.
