[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The track from the town of Kalka, at the edge of the plains, to Simla, the former summer capital of British India, is a marvel of engineering.

Work began to lay the lines on steep Himalayan terrain in 1889.

The track rises dramatically from 650 metres above sea level to a breathtaking 2,100 metres, passing through 103 tunnels, 969 bridges, 919 curves and 18 railway stations along the way.

The railway was inaugurated by Lord Curzon, the British viceroy in India, in November 1903.

However, all has not been well with the imperial engineering marvel recently.

a very nice take... the round of the bridge is quiet effective

Well composed with good lead-in from the lower left corner here Yogesh. Good work!

Perhaps a little more at the bottom - if the railway exited the shot towards the upper 1/3rd of the frame it would be even more powerful, but this is good too!


And those people are sitting...
Doors are open...??
