The Beautiful Nilambur Road railway station in Kerala

The Picturesque Nilambur Road Railway Station

The quaint, picturesque rural Indian Railways setting: Little train headed by a hooded cab unit diesel engine waits among hills and forests. The rake of the Nilambur Road – Thiruvananthapuram Rajya Rani Link Express headed by Erode WDM3D #11149 rests at the Nilambur Road railway station in Kerala on a cloudy and rainy evening, awaiting its departure later in the day. The Nilambur Road Railway station near the little town of Nilambur in the far reaches of Malappuram district, is the end point of the Shoranur – Nilambur spur, at the foothills of the Western Ghats which can be seen in the background. This 41 km historic Broad Gauge railway line was built by the British to easily transport Teak and other forest produces easily from the forests to the coast for shipping to England.
