Description

Passenger train at Kateri Road on the Nilgiri Railway, by Peter Bawcutt. The train is full and the passengers are hanging from the side of the train. This was also done to keep cool as the carriages could get very warm. This is a rack railway. The train moves through cogs in the centre of the track linking to cogs underneath the train. The railway, opened in 1899, is 16 miles long and climbs around 1300 metres.
