So this trip was my first train journey in about 6 years, and the second in about 12 years... and i was absolutely fascinated. I forgot to buy batteries for my camera, so had to make do with my phone (though i must say my phone camera rocks! touch wood).
This was when we were returning to bangalore. True to form, the train was late, so we reached in daylight instead of darkness... which met some pretty pictures in early morning light.
