Jaisalmer Railway Station, Rajasthan
Jaisalmer Railway Station, Rajasthan

Thought of doing a series on the railway stations I have clicked within India. Mostly we are either in a hurry to get onto a train or to get out of the station to reach somewhere. But sometimes I do manage to click pictures. For example in January this year I was catching a train back to Delhi from Jaisalmer. I saw Palace on Wheels at the station. So I dumped my luggage in the assigned coach, we were in a group so others could watch it. And then I ran to click pictures!

I quite like Kalka Railway Station, it is small and beautiful and it means you are near the hills.

The last image for today is of the Bharatpur Railway Station, my latest trip of 2012. Took this one from my mobile phone. I bought the mobile because of the 5 megapixel  camera!

But the best station that I have stayed at is Barog at Himachal Pradesh.
