The Forgotten Trains of India

Ritayan Mukherjee is a widely-published photographer who is based in India. In this photo essay for Roads and Kingdoms he documents his experience on the Gwalior Sheopur Kalan Passenger train, which runs on the longest remaining narrow gauge route in the world. The train takes more than 10 hours to cover 198km (123 miles). It is so behind its time that the Indian government tried to get it on the UNESCO World Heritage List. (Sadly, it didn’t make the cut.)
