|Albie (on the
right) with his firemen on their passenger link WG, based at Daund. Working on steam
locomotives called for skill, knowledge and energy. By the time drivers like Albie had
reached the steam passenger link in the 1980s they had already mastered driving diesels in
the freight link: multi skilling at its best!

CASE's INDIA TOUR NOTES- 1983
These pages detail my third trip to India in the 1980s. I have chosen to start
with this trip as it included a significant amount of narrow gauge activity and covered 5
different rail regions.
The photos will be changed in September, so re visit the site, the intention is to rotate
reports and photos every three to four months. If you wish to copy the photos for your own
use go ahead, but if you wish to use them to illustrate another page seek my permission
