The Salsette Trombay Railway also known as the Central Salsette Tramway was a railway line on the island of Salsette in Bombay. The line was opened in 1928 by the Great Indian Peninsular Railway(GIPR)

The 4 ft 8 1⁄2 in (1,435 mm) standard gauge (SG) line linked Andheri to the north of Bombay with the village of Trombay in the east, a distance of 8 miles(13km) [1]

In 1934 the line was shut to make way for the R.A.F. Santacruz Airport
