Over 300 trains and 1,000,000 people use Howrah Station, across the Hoogly River from Calcutta, every day! 5′ 6″ gauge trains, with people hanging from the doors, EMU’s and both diesel and electric hauled passenger trains, from locals to Rajdhani Expresses. The trains are colorful and full of character, the diesel locomotives are Indian built Alco models, delightfully smokey, in a variety of types and colors. Howrah, with swarms of people everywhere, is India’s largest station. We also visit Kamarkundu Junction and Kolaghat Junction for more passenger trains and some freight trains.
