Monsoon Train Journeys

Who doesn't love train journeys? We waited for a chance to travel by train when we were kids. The journeys by train has its own charm. It is a mini world in itself when you meet people from different places and the passengers become long lasting friends. 

Indian Railways has one of the largest networks in the world and is the largest civilian employer in the world. The variety of trains and the way the network has been built from mid nineteenth century a fascinating reading.

Journey by train during monsoon is always a memorable experience  There are some lovely journeys we always cherish. One such journey is from Londa - a small town on Karnataka - Goa border - to Madgaon in Goa. The journey through Braganza ghat during monsoon is unbelievably wonderful. Tunnels, cascading streams, dripping side walls, mist covered tracks, continuos drizzle, green expanse all along makes this journey magical. 

If you are a Indian Railway aficionado like us, you should visit the website of Indian Railway Fans Club. It is quintessential railway fans website. A last word on rail fanning!

I bumped into the website by accident and was pleasantly surprised to see lovely trip reports and other information on Indian railways. I chanced upon this lovely trip report of travel from Londa to Madgaon in Monsoon. 

I won't say anything. Just sit back and enjoy the journey. Click on this link here.
