Remarks & Notes 
After having picked up a few coaches, train 13010, the Doon Express from Dehradun to Howrah (Kolkata) stands ready for departure behind a dual-cab WDP-4D (EMD GT46PAC, built at the Diesel Locomotive Works in Varanasi, with a 16-cylinder 710 engine under the hood.)

Station name signs in India are typically written in three languages - Hindi, English and the dominant local language (or whichever comes next, if Hindi is the local tongue.) In this case, I believe - though I'm not certain - that the third language on the sign is Urdu. Notice that the ends of the platform shelter are painted too.

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.
Lights In The Night (Sundown to Sunrise)! Railroads In Another Light!

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads at sundown or in the light of sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
