The stories in this collection capture the essence of the Indian Railway - from the small town station, at the time of the Raj, to the present day big-city station bursting at the seams. The teeming and varied life of the Indian railway station and its environs have fascinated writers from Jules Verne in the 1870s to more recently Satyajit Ray, R.K.Laxman and more modern writers. In this anthology, one of India's best-known writers makes a selection of the greatest railway stories the subcontinent has produced.
