Mysore Railway Station

The moment you see people running helter skelter on a railway station, you can clearly understand that they are about to miss their train. The sound of the engine hooting then adds to their woes and they would run as fast as they would have ever run in their lives. But whatever be the case, the trains have become our man Friday for every travel that we wish to undertake. Before even thinking of flying by air, we would always expect that there is a train to our destination which would take us through various natural landscapes.
