BBC2TV’s magazine format look at ‘the world’s busiest railway” continued yesterday evening. There were stories about long-distance sleeper services and behind-the-scenes looks at catering, laundry, freight services and train repair.

Also, featured was the special training given to railway engine drivers – 12 years learning, job-for-life security and above average salaries. Sadly, that won’t last!

I loved the special model layout they use to teach the drivers about the signal system.

In general, the programme is interesting and entertaining…it plays out against a backdrop of the railway, but is really about culture and the system of India. The whole is so much more interesting than its parts.

A bit like what I was hoping to do with this blog…
