When it is time to board, the crowd scramble forward pressing against each other to get a good space on the train.
Save yourself this discomfort, take the first class coach because the economy coach is almost always overcrowded and stuffy, not adding the awful odour emanating from sweating bodies.
Some daredevils board the train illegally and sit on the roof. Others clutch on to the sides and the entrance until they get to their destination.
Don’t take the train if you have an appointment. You are in for a long ride. These trains are old and are not as fast as the trains you see in foreign films.
Be prepared. Some rail cars might detach from the train, but not to worry the engineers are always on board to couple them back together.
An upside to travelling by train is the breathtaking views. It gently moves by like flicking through the pages of a book.
