Train Waiting

Everyone knows how big the railway system is in India: more than 70,000 miles of track serving 30 million people a day; 1.36 million employees. Time to check it out.

A typical platform, busy as always. Or, sometimes, not so much.

There's a never-ending parade of vendors selling snacks and drinks, in this case, bags of water.  Looking down at the action.

In addition to people, plenty of other stuff goes by rail. There's no such thing as excess baggage. If you can haul it, it can ride.

Another busy day, time to wash up, using the water supply lines in the middle of the tracks. The throngs disembarking. Another day in India, another 30 million people.
