Previously I showed the exterior of a no frills chair car. Here, to the left is a sleeper car and to the right is an air conditioned chair car, a Shatabdi ("centenary" in Sanskrit). Shatabdi Express trains travel at 130 to 140kmph and one particular train apparently does 150 top speed, 91 average speed.
This was taken at Howrah Station, a railway station serving the twin cities of Kolkata and Howrah. The time was approximately 5.45 am and the wake up call for the visible sleepers may come soon in the form of a short blast from a departing locomotive horn.
