India’s Disappearing Railways  

A Photographic Journey 

Angus McDonald

India’s railways are gradually being converted from narrow gauge to broad gauge and a whole way of life is slowly fading. Photojournalist Angus McDonald grew up in India and spent five years recording life on these railways with their wonderfully evocative names, capturing moments on The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, The Kalka-Shimla Railway and the Shakuntala Express amongst others:  the man sleeping in the luggage rack above the seats packed with passengers; the small boys playing cricket beside the track; the shepherd in the train corridor cradling a lamb; the driver leaning out of his cabin to feed a passing monkey; the sign on the crowded roof of the train reading ‘Please riding on the roof is forbidden and will attract a fine of 500 rupees or three months in jail’.  Goodman Fiell   224pp   Hb.  HBH271  £30.00
