A Fine Eye For Detail - Indian Railways Style
Here is an exception: Trains from Pune to Mumbai cross a few meter wide water body near Mumbra. There stands a board which declares: "You Are Crossing The Arabian Sea At Mumbra Creek"
The said creek is only a narrow inlet from an inlet of the Arabian sea. BUT, since it is also true that both ends of the bridge are on different points on the shores of that sea, the claim made by the board is quite a valid one (geometrically speaking - or is it topologically?). Indeed, on the other hand, when you cross the considerably wider Thane creek a few kilometers beyond Mumbra, you are NOT making a crossing of the Arabian sea; indeed, only one end of that bridge is on the shore of the sea and the other end is on an island in that sea (Mumbai is a proper island city after all). And the railways have NOT put up any grand board there.
