India by Train

We’ve done quite a bit of train travel around India on this trip, and I found the images of life from (and on) the trains to be captivating – I never tire of looking out the window. My experience traveling by train has been new and exciting as well – boarding trains without confirmed tickets and working out "deals" with the conductors, traveling sleeper class (just below 3rd class AC) with people sleeping in the aisles and between cars, and the constant shouting of food vendors pitching their goods.

Our first train ride was from Beawar to Saharanpur for Shipra’s wedding, then later from Delhi to Agra, Agra to Ranthambhore, Ranthambhore to Kota, Kota to Baroda and finally Surat to Bombay. Here are our favorite images from the train:
