A few minutes after sunrise on March 3 1994, the overnight Chetak-Express from Udaipur to Delhi has stopped at a remote station somewhere in the countryside.

Count the coaches... (Andeas Illert, 26th September 2009)

The tiny Darjeeling 0-4-0 saddle tank locomotive accommodates a crew of five: driver, fireman, a coal trimmer on the roof and two sanders on the front buffer beam. During the downhill journey, the sanders will travel on the roof of the passenger cars to operate the brakes. (Gayabari, February 22nd 1994) - contribution from Andreas Illert (10th October 2007):
Among the many job opportunities at an Indian steam depot, 'turntable operator' is not the most desirable. But as the Moradabad depot closed for steam not long after that scene was taken in February 1994, several hundred employees were made redundant (15th August 2007). This reminder of the less glamorous side of steam operation is from Andreas Illert.
