Neral – Matheran Mountain Railway

I like rail-fanning though I am not giving too much time on my this hidden activity. But one day I will be active rail-fanning guy.
Want to know all about train and trains. Even though today also its like daily adventure traveling via train in mumbai.

So we have decided to visit Matheran via Neral-Matheran Mountain Railways.
The train timings are very convenient. There are very few routes in India where toy trains are running. You can see http://www.trainenquiry.com/StaticContent/Special_Hills.aspx like for more detail.

In season time and on weekends the trains are running full, so you make sure you book train tickets well in time. You can book tickets via IRCTC website. So we did the same we have already booked the tickets. 🙂

Nerail is situated in Mumbai – Pune rail road. From Neral we can catch Matheran Train which takes 90 minutes average.

A View of narrow gauge, it looks very less space between two tracks and put us into confusion that how a train run on such a narrow space.

Neral – Matheran Train traveling is all about fun, curves, hight, slow speed, toy train, stops, views and panoramas.

I clicked some of the train engines.

फोटो चलचित्र, मैं और flickr

flickr use करना मुझे अच्छा लगता है, हलाकि मैं इतना दमदार photographer नहीं हु, पर फिर भी काम चल जाता है.
Flickr का नाम मैंने तब सुना था जब मैं Yahoo! बंगलोर मैं था, ( अरे भाई as employee नहीं, on client side from my parent company for 3-4 months. 😐 ) सभी लोग Flickr use करते थे. बस फिर क्या था, मैंने भी Flickring करना शुरू कर दिया. 😎

लो इतना सब बता दिया पर मैं link तो दी ही नहीं, My Flickr Photos

अब ये wordpress.com वाले javascript embd tag का option तो देते नहीं है, तो फिर flickriver से अपना badge तैयार कर लिया है.

I am using Sony DSC-W30

अब मेरे बहुत सारे दोस्त कहते है की भाई, अब Flickr का pro account खरीदने की क्या जरुरत है. तो मेरे प्यारे दोस्तों ३६५ (365) दिनों के १२६० (1260) Rs. , तो १ दिन का हो गया ३.५ (3.5) rs.
मात्र ३ और ५० पैसे ( लगभग ) प्रतिदिन, ध्यान से सोचो, कुछ महँगा सौदा नहीं है.

Any way, have fun, today I have extended my flickr pro account for 1 more year, keep in touch.

Happy Photography.
