Bharatpur Junction

To cover the bulk of the journey from Fatehpur Sikri to Ranthambhore National Park, we went by train from Bharatpur Junction. Although the classic sight of people sitting on top of the rail carriages and hanging off the sides, is largely a thing of the past, it’s still fair to say that India’s idea of passenger health and safety is a little different to our own:

    Indian railways, a wonderful legacy, an amazing network. I’d love to travel around India by train one day Mark, preferably not on the roof or hanging out of or hanging onto, a door! 🙂 Smashing pictures as always.
