The train finally arrived and we scrambled into our coach to get to our seats. I was lucky to get a good seat near the window. At last, the guard blew the whistle and the train moved slowly and pulled out of the station. I felt thrilled at that very moment and I enjoyed the jerky movement and the new experience.
Having just came from our Great Rail Journey to Bokaro thermal and Howrah, I must let you know how much we enjoyed it. Not only was it great value, we couldn't have had half the experience under our own steam. But the itinerary was chosen judiciously to take in all the 'must sees' in the states we visited.
