Out of my many railway journeys, I remember the trip to Lucknow as the most interesting. Last month, I and my parents decided to go to Lucknow and attend the marriage party of my cousin. We got our suitcases ready and went to the station by rickshaw.

There was a great rush on the sta­tion and after one hour I was able to get three tickets. Then, we came at the platform.

There were many people waiting for the train. Some were walking here and there and some were sitting on their luggage as there were no seats available. Hawkers were selling sweets, fruits, toys, tea, coffee and cigarettes.

After some time the train arrived. There was a great rush because some people were coming out of the train and some were going inside. Some how we went inside the train and got seats. After ten minutes the train began to move. From the running train we could see green fields on either side.


After four hours we reached Luck- now. We took an auto rickshaw and reached my relative’s house within a few minutes. They all were happy to see us.
