IN PICTURES: Trichy Railway Station Like You’ve Never Seen It Before. In 4 Pencil Sketches.

Teary goodbyes, welcoming hugs, those attractive bookshops, monotonous announcements, children sitting on their luggage, and so much more – look around a railway station and it will never cease to fascinate you.

Indian railways is one of the largest and busiest rail networks in the world, with about 7,112 stations. It has served as a lifeline for the millions of passengers who use the service every day.

With trains passing through them all day railway stations seem to have a life of their own – some are crowded, others quiet, and some just somnolent in the drowsy heat of afternoons.

The facades of railway stations in India are equally fascinating. Built in the British era, many have turrets and domes, while others have deeply collonaded corridors and balconies. Perhaps this is what the artist was looking at when he sat down to sketch the Tiruchirappalli Junction railway station, because what he put down on paper is absolutely beautiful. He has also sketched the nearby areas like the office of the Divisional Railway Manager and the Divisional Railway Office. Tiruchirappalli is an important railway junction in Tamil Nadu and it serves as the headquarters for Tiruchirappalli railway division of the Southern Railway Zone.

Here is a look at the work of P. Sunil Kumar, who works as a painter with Indian Railways and likes to sketch whenever he has time. He is currently posted at Lalgudi, Tamil Nadu.
