On the railways

somewhere in India, in the 1940s.  This photo is from the same lot as yesterday's cinema and likewise the location is not noted on the reverse.  The building in the background may mean that with a bit more research and comparison with the photos that do have named locations, we may find out where this is exactly.


  1. I am sure there are people out there who could tell you not only the location, not only the type of train, but probably the name of the driver. Alas I am not one : but I did rnjoy looking at the photograph.

  2. Lisa's grandfather was an engineer (structural) in the UK who lived in India for a few years helping to design some railroads. Her mom has a couple interesting stories about living there, if you can get her to talk, unlike her daughter! ;-)
