I have been watching the series on BBC i Player about the Indian hill railways, its been a fantastic series so far and I am looking forward to the third and final part next week. The dedication and enthusiasm of the railway workers and the indian people sums up all what I love about India the country and its people.
At times the whole thing looks a bit frightening, with the track and rolling stock having seen better days, but it goes on day after day and if a new part is needed they make it!
Being over a 100 years old and due to the nature of the terrain the bridges and tunnels are in constant need of a repair, and now the 3 mountain railways in India are classed as world heritage sites.
