Rural Train Ride
Very few rural train rides are possible in India. One of the places that we have identified is the train safari in Deograh, which embodies all the nuances of sightseeing in rural India with the slow chug of a train. It is a 1.5hours ride on the meter gauge train. The train was started by the British. It starts from Kamblighat (10 minute drive from Deogarh Mahal), where a lone stationmaster mans everything. The ride ends at Phulad, a 30 minutes by road from Deogarh. This is also the highest track on the Western Railways of India. The train doesn’t have a name, but is christened with the number, ‘222’. The route of this train was used as a backdrop to Rudyard Kipling’s famous book and movie, “The Man Who Would Be King”.
