Should be a sitter.

What

The image above contains the text of a letter that is now a part of the Railway archives, and is often displayed at museums. If you can get past the language—transliterations and all—tell me what the significance of this letter is. As in, what change did it bring about in India’s Railway system?

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!
