This week I have been revisiting old negatives from the past and this picture was taken in 1997 when I visited Gujarat as part of a backpacking solo tour of India.
In this scene we are in the locoshed yard at Wankaner Junction near Rajkot. The metre gauge railways in India were about to transition from steam to diesel. The locos were in a very run down condition and it probably was a struggle to keep them in working order.
This image was scanned from a colour print negative.
