And back again... more narrow gauge photos from India

Dear all,

Apologies in advance for filling your inboxes with off-topic emails.

I have been going through my Indian photos again and have uploaded another collection to Flickr.

This album takes the viewer on the return journey from Shimla down to Kalka by diesel.

Take a look if you are interested.

Cheers,

G'day all,

Further to my earlier emails, I have been going through my Indian photographs again.

On the 25th February I was privileged to travel on the 2'6" gauge from Shimla to Kathleeghat behind a steam locomotive.

I have to say the KSR is far superior to the Darjeeling Railway - it has better civil engineering, better signalling, better permanent way, better diesels and when I was there better views!

As a fan of the narrow gauge I have been to various 2'6" sites such as the Sittingbourne and Kemsley and the Welshpool & Llanfair in the UK, and Puffing Billy in Australia; however, the KSR is a different beast and is truly amazing.

The link to the images is here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/55958391@N07/albums/72157708034220474

In addition to the railway I have also included several images of the town, shops, monkeys and the view.

Take a look, but only if you are interested.

Cheers,

Michael Chapman

Dear all,

I have been going through my Indian railway photographs and have uploaded a couple more collections to Flickr.

This is my last trip on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway:

And this is my first collection from the 2'6" gauge Kalka to Shimla railway:

Take a look if you are interested.

Dear all,

On the 23rd February I travelled from Delhi Cantt to Rewari in India behind a broad (5'6") gauge WP class 4-6-2.

At Rewari there is a steam locomotive depot where broad and metre gauge locomotives are stored.

I have uploaded a collection of images to Flickr.

But only if you're interested - as this is rather off-topic!

Sorry, me again.

Here is another Darjeeling album.

This one gives the viewer a quick look round the town of Darjeeling and a trip on the Joy Train to Batasia Loop and on to Ghum.

On the way back the steam train I was on got stuck behind a diesel hauled train that had derailed in the throat at Darjeeling station!

I shared an album with you from the Flickr app. Check it out:

Dear All,

Last month I travelled on the 'Indian Magic' tour with Darjeeling Tours. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too kind in and around Darjeeling with lots of cloud and fog.

However; I have started to work through the thousands of images I captured and have uploaded some collections to Flickr.

On-shed at Siliguri Junction is here:

There is more to come... including two other narrow gauge railways...

Please take a look if you are interested.

And there's more!

A further album takes the viewer round the 2'6" gauge diesel depot at Kalka - a very impressive site for the narrow gauge.

Take a look, but only if you're interested:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/55958391@N07/albums/72157679942009348

As the painted sign on an old wheel by the entrance to the shed said, "Man's greatest invention - keep it moving."

Cheers,

Michael Chapman.
