A train just comes in to the railway station around midnight, passengers looking for their coaches.If one is not a train enthusiast one can never forget that initial surge of excitement mingled with awe as a great long train drawn by a giant locomotive, hissing and steaming and belching out clouds of black smoke, pulls into the station. The coolie (porter) clad in red and carrying mountains of luggage of all shapes and sizes jostles the passengers that pour through Indian railway stations every day. One the platform is the chaiwalla often serving tea in little clay cups or kulars that are thrown away after use (in South India one will find coffee instead of tea);

Love the noise in this...Usually I hate noise in night photography but the B&W helped to make this artistic. And it's from a mobile phone too :p thats why~~
