At Morvi in 1997

At Morvi in 1997

 

This was my first solo trip to India and I flew into Rajkot in Gujarat, then caught the train from Wankaner Junction to Morvi.

These were the final days of steam on the metre gauge and in this view taken at Movi as I was waiting for the return trip to Wankaner. The station master at Morvi was a major irritation. He may have been correct, but he refused to allow photography here without a pass being issued from Mumbai. Maybe he was just trying it on, but I took my photos anyway! This was in stark contrast to the reception that I received from the rest of the railway staff in Gujarat.

It’s hard to believe that I have been visiting India for over 20 years.
