River Crossing on Bangladesh Railways

September, 2012

I went out for experiencing a rail journey in Bangladesh and to see Jamnuna river over the bridge over it.

I reached early to the Dhaka Bimanbandar Station to purchase a ticket for Sadanandapur situated across river Jamuna in Sirajganj district. Bangladesh railways run on dual gauge system and slow moving trains meanders through lush green villages.

Managed to get a seat in this chair car.

The train started to snail past beautiful greenery.

For any further assistance contact me.
