The Gwalior Sheopur passenger train departs Gwalior Junction at 6:30 am daily. If it runs on time, which is very rarely, it should pull in at Sheopur station at 5:30 pm. Due to inadvertent delays, this distance of 210 kms is usually covered in 11 hours. Here the train leaves Bamour Gaon, fifth stop on the way. Image credit : Ritayan Mukherjee @rikhmukherjee

We start a new photo series featuring the Gwalior - Sheopur passenger train, which till recently was the longest running narrow gauge train route in the world. The railway was commisioned a century ago by Gwalior State, and was originally part of Gwalior Light Railway before it was merged with Indian Railway post-independence. The train route is currently upgrading to broad gauge and is only partly operational. Image credit : Ritayan Mukherjee @rikhmukherjee
