Train Ride across rural Assam – Guwahati to Dimapur

The railway station was just as enchanting as every other Indian railway station. Bustling with travellers and vendors, crowded with passengers sleeping on the platforms waiting for their next connection, coolies carrying black tin trunks, and announcements that were loud enough to break through the visual clutter and capture everyone’s attention. Eyes constantly peered at the electronic boards, waiting for the correct train to be announced, waiting to begin the hurried boarding of the train.

The train journey from Guwahati in Assam to Dimapur in Nagaland lasted a few hours.

A few images – most taken standing at the door of a moving inter-city train:
