There’s something elegantly decayed about this forgotten Nepal railway coach at Janakpur railway station. Photographer Bijay Chaurasia writes: “Abandoned Train at Janakpur station The Nepal Railways Corporation Ltd. (NRC) is owned by the government of Nepal. It maintains and operates two railway lines: a 6 km, 1,676 mm (5 ft 6 in) line from Raxaul in India to Sirsiya Inland Container Depot or Dry Port near Birganj in Nepal and a 53 km 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) narrow gauge line from Jaynagar in India to Bijalpura in Nepal.” As with all railways, the shadows of long disused rolling stock are never far away.
