Fresh out of my camera. Took this pic yesterday at National Railways Museum in Chankya Puri at New Delhi. Incase, if you are wondeing what I was doing there, well having fun with my nephew and niece (Vyom & Gungun). I have always been fascinated with Trains, so understandably this is one of my favorite place, right from kid days. Talking about my fascination with railways, i have travelled almost all across India in Trains including some of the famous and most picturise routes of Konkan Railways (Ticket in Rajdhani but spent all time sitting on door cuz of views), Kalka-Shimla, Darjeeling etc.
