At The Train Station In India

You may think all the action related to rail travel is aboard the actual trains, but stations and platforms are also full of life. Watching people waiting provides its own subtle rewards.

Trains whizz by, people wait.

A wizened gentleman, looking for his train. A younger man, chatting with his friend through the window before the train departs.
Woman waiting. You're definitely in India if there's a designated autorickshaw parking area.

Supervising the loading of cargo. Another old gent, wearing his gravitas well.

Finally on the train, but still waiting.
