National Rail Museum, New Delhi

Yesterday I went to the National Rail Museum in Delhi, with members of BCMTouring, for the photography meet we had organized there.

A bright sunny day, coupled with an impressive display of Trains from yesteryears made our day as we clicked away to glory.

It is one museum in Delhi, which I believe every one should visit at least once in their life time (especially if you are interested in photography).

Here are few of my favorite photographs from yesterday’s outing:
