Came across this unique group of rail lovers on Facebook. I am an ardent lover of rail journey and a firm believer of the fact that to know Bharat (not
) you need
to travel long distance by rail. Rail journey throws open a plethora of
beautiful visuals of nature, and rural, suburban and urban lives. It brings to us
villages, towns and cities and gives us a peek into the lives being lived there
which we wouldn’t have known or seen otherwise. Not to mention the railway
infrastructure- various trains, stations of various sizes and era etc- which
can be a study in itself. The members of the group, called Railway Lovers,
frequently post photographs shot en route. Here starts a series of curated
pictures from the group. India
